I was diagnosed with Type 2 in October of 2012. I am taking Metformin (1000 mg twice a day) and Glimepiride (1 mg once a day). After a few weeks on the medications, my blood sugar levels had come down to normal levels. Over the past month or so, my morning blood sugar levels are starting to creep upward. I am the first to admit that I have had a hard time sticking to a strict diet. That being said, I am very conscious of what I eat. I walk about 1/2 mile, twice a day. I ride the bus to work and walk to my office from the nearest bus stop each morning and then back again in the afternoon. I have a couple of questions:
1. Is this a typical reaction to oral medications?
2. I know that I need to do better diet-wise, but is this all a reaction to the diet?
