On metformin last 3 years for type 2 diabetes. My daily numbers have all been great until the last 3 months. 30 of my readings are now over my target but I am not doing anything different. Anybody else have this problem?

Are you taking your carbs 25 per Day or per meal?

As of yesterday…25 carbs per day. I was doing between 55-65 for the past couple years with excellent results then…wham!…they starting escalating. Yesterday I had 25 grams of carbs total and my reading 2 hours after dinner was 240! I had my labs taken last week and have a doc appointment the end of Oct. I'm calling tomorrow to see what's up with my A1C results and the rest. Today I am going to start checking after lunch and try to find out if it spikes during the the day as well. Any thoughts?
