Hello I am new to this world of diabetes and accidentally diagnosed. I had no real real systems. But One thing occurred that prompted me to check some things out. I am very concerned now because my number are not dropping. When I discovered I had this. My number was 400. Since then 4 days. I was placed on metformin. It killed my stomach. I already have stomach problems to begin with. Then my doctor switched me to a new med which is 2.5 milligrams. I don't remember the name of it off hand. I am a teacher and having access to the bathroom is very limited. Ok I am on new meds I have totally changed my diet and started to do some walking. MY numbers are hovering around 203-250. How can I ever get the where they should be I am worried to death.
