I hope someone can help me with a problem with my FBG's being too high. My doctor put me on Metformin 500 mgs x2 in the morning and 2 in the evening. I also drink 1-2 beers a night. I check my sugars when I wake and they are always in the high 190's-200. My Mother died the day after Christmas and we buried her on December 30th. A friend, who has Type 2 diabetes also said that it was because of stress. I do not believe that to be the cause, because I havent cried at my Mother's passing due to being on Prozac for anxiety and panic attacks, and the fact she is in a much better place.
I work in fast food and am on my feet 8-9 hours a day with a 30 minute break, where I eat a HUGE breakfast. I am constantly walking at work, so I am sure I am getting activity. Throughout the day I will eat cookies at work, usually 3 when I get to work and then maybe 3 in the afternoon. My nightime meal is usually eaten throughout the evening, and it is a spoonfull of peanut butter every so often.
What am I doing wrong and what can I do to lower the sugars?
I am also on Remeron 15mgs at night to help me sleep.
