Finally after 14 years I am getting strict control of my blood sugars. For the past 2 weeks I am waking up to sugars that are bordering on low. From 59 to 90. Bedtime is between 100 and 132. And during the day after meals I never go over 150. It has been a long time and a struggle. I have a Dr. appt this week for my latest A1c. Will be anxious to see what it is. Last November it was 7.0 and I came off of insulin. I am feeling so much better. I am sleeping great. Only waking up once at night to go potty instead of 5-6 times. My neuropathy in my feet seems to be better. Taking Lyrica for that. I am actually getting hungry now before I eat instead of just eating because I was bored or thought I needed to. I am not loosing weight as much as I would want to. So I have decided I will be "fat and in control" instead of "skinny and feel horrible". LOL. I am going to talk with doctor to see what he thinks. If anyone has suggestions I would appreciate them. I am thinking the weight is from the Lyrica or the hormones. But I need both of them. So hopefully it will all even out.
BTW the control is due to 2 different pills. Amaryl 2 times a day and 1 Actos. And finally found a eating pattern that works for me. Exercising too.
