Hello. This is my first post. I wanted to ask everyone for advice. I was put on new medication last week. I had been taking 500mg Metformin 3 x daily and Januvia 100mg 1 x in the morning. My doctor took me off of it after 2 years and put me on 1 500mg Metformin in the morning and at dinner 1 Kombiglyze XR. I had been sleeping through the night and was pretty happy on the Januvia even though I had been made aware some time ago that studies show that Januvia can cause pancreatic cancer. Since the change of my medication I am now getting up 2 to 3 times a night. I decided last night that I would take my BS when I got up. About 2 1/2 hours after dinner I took my BS and it was 191. I went to bed and my first time up I took my BS, it was 125 at 2:01 a.m. I woke up after that at 5:36 a.m. And my BS was 205. I had not eaten a thing. This was 7 hours after my snack before bed. When I got up at 7:25 my BS was 161. If anyone has experienced this can you please give me some advice? I have called my doctor and I am waiting for him to call me to discuss this. What can you suggest? I know that this is my BS dropping too low and my body making an excessive amount of insulin because of the drop. Help!
