Hi everyone… I have officially been a type 2 diabetic for about 4 1/2 years now. Was put on metformin first and did ok with that for a few months. Then my numbers started to creep up and my doctor added glyburide. Those two were my major medications for a log time. 1000mg metformin twice a day and 5mg glyburide twice a day. I have also been on januvia (didn't do anything) and actos (also didn't do anything).
In complete honesty, my numbers have been out of control for a couple of years. Last February, I was put on 10 u of lantus (24 hr insulin). It has barely done anything for me. At the end of February this year, my doctor increased my lantus to 14 u and actually took me off of glyburide… But it hasn't done anything. I'm so sick of my numbers being out of control…
They say losing weight will help… I've lost over 30 pounds in the last year and a half.
Anyone out there going through anything similar?
