Please make an appointment with a doctor! Do it now! Don't spend your time here asking questions. Diabetes is not something to be messed around with. Please go to the doctor now.

I think symptoms of type1 & type 2 are the same. If I were you, I'd see a doctor & figure out if you are type 1 or type 2. If I remember correctly—, type one is the pancreas doesn't produce enough or any insulin & you need to supplement it. I have type 2 so I have insulin, my body just isn't using it, but I can do things to make my body use it.

The best part about diabetes you can test, you can know within seconds where your numbers are.
so, when I'm low, because I took a walk or something I won't take my meds. Too low can/ too high are both problems.

Around here if you get diabetes, they want you to go to a class on nutrition, & you'll learn about things like higher fiber foods that can slow down sugar spikes & keep you more full, when I watched portion sizes & ate smaller meals more often, I lost weight & I didn't try. it's a great diet plan & all your really doing is trying to be healthy.

best wishes

I recommend that you remain "scared". Fear of failure has been my primary motivation all the years I've been afflicted. Good luck.

The people around you are not a doctors and are clueless. Currently there is no cure for diabetes but that does not mean you will be on medication for the rest of your life. There are Type 2 diabetics who are no longer on medication and control it with diet and exercise. You are scared because you listen to people who are not equipped to diagnose or treat you. This is why I never take medical advice from anyone but my doctor. He knows my medical history and can properly help me stay in good health with diabetes.

No one on this site can tell you where you are in Diabetes. You really need to see a doctor for that. He or she is the only one who can diagnose you and treat it accordingly. You should also see an Endocrinologist. 190 is still high.

190 is still to high. Normal is 140/70 you should see a doctor. Jjbrennan

You're right, 190 mg/dl is too high.

140 mg/dl is still a little high for my taste (too close to complcation range), and 70 mg/dl is flirting with hypos. I'd rather see those number's range more like between 120 to 80 mg/dl

God's best to you and yours

It can be really scary when you're not sure what's going on, and people are giving you different types of advice. The only way to know for sure what is happening, and to make sure you are in the best health, is to see your doctor. Once you know what you're facing, you can learn how to deal with it. Let us know how you're doing. ~Lynn @Glucerna

well, don't just see a doctor, see an Endocrinologist, the sooner the better.
The people around you have no idea what they are talking about. Taking meds will not make you a permanent patient.

I'm going to agree with everybody else and say go to the DR. immediately. I was diagnosed about a year ago and I'm on metformin but it doesn't mean I will be on it forever. I learned a great deal about being a diabetic by attending some classes through my clinic. so so informational. learning how to control the diabetes is so important to leading a good and healthy life.

Doctor, Doctor, Doctor. :-) The earlier on Type 2 is caught, the better your chances of being able to make changes to your eating and exercise habits that can make taking medication no longer necessary. You may need to go on some type of medication for awhile though, just so that you don't do long term damage to your pancreas.

I am gonna agree with haoleboy and wraithmb and urge you to go to the Dr ASAP!

I am living proof that going on medication does not mean one is on it "forever". I started out on Metformin, and then when I had kidney problems needing dialysis, I was changed over to NPH insulin. Eventually I found out by accident, that my pancreas was producing enough insulin that I could control my T2D by eating very carefully. And so I manage my T2D without the use of diabetes meds now.

But see the Dr and if Dr thinks you may need the help of medication to manage your Blood Glucose (BG) for a time, follow Dr's instructions.

God's best to you

You need too see a doctor NOW! By ignoring the elevated BGL levels you've described you are flirting with serious complications. Medication will facilitate the lowering of your BGL and does not mean that you will be on it forever … STOP LISTENING to the people that are giving you such bad advice
DO NOT try and 'cure' this on your own.
