Feeling overwhelmed, just diagnosed T2 on 7-22-14. Dr very concerned about my A1C#. Recommended re-test of blood sugar/A1C in 30 days and if numbers do not go down, not sure if oral (metformin) med will be prescribed. Dr said levels may or may not decrease in 30 days, sometimes takes 90 days. Dr is reluctant to put me on med because of the level of my A1C, feels diabetic med may cause the kidneys further stress.
I kind of had a small meltdown last wk and went out and pigged out (meaning I really carbed out) for that day only. It seemed that I ate mostly comfort foods and I didn't feel guilty afterwards, or too full, I felt satisfied. My ? is besides inhaling alot of food, raising blood sugar level what effect does "carbing" out have on the body? Thank you.
