I have been a diabetic since 2010, after having pancreatitis. I started with a A1c of 9 and with medication brought it down to a 6.1. In the fall of 2012, my number was back to 9, my endo dr has had me on metformin 1000mg twice a day, amaryl 4mg twice a day, and Actos, 15mg once a day. I didn't want to take actos but he said that's the only thing to work. This week I went to see my family dr about an unrelated issue and she put me on insulin. She said that with my history of pancreatitis I needed insulin. I inject 3 units of humalog at every meal and 10 units of Lantas at bedtime.
My question is, does anyone know of any meds besides actos I can ask my dr about? I'm so confused and new with all this not sure what I need to be doing. My sugar spikes after meals up to 225-240. Thanks so much.
