Hi Everyone, glad to have found this support group. Im 54 5'7" 160lbs Type 2 since 2011, uncontrolled on Metformin and Glyburide, numbers 250-550. A1c 2/14 was 16.9. Trig 1843 my liver enlarged bad they said NAFLD. I started Lantus on on 8/21, at 18u, now 30 plus 2000mg Metformin 15mg Glyburide. My A1c on 9/4 was 10.4 Trig 1067, first time Ive sern numbers under 200 in 2 years. I needed insulin long ago…no insurance. My fears are increased swelling in feet with 30 u Lantus, worries me! He wants me to eat 60 carbs a day geez one glucerna is 19, How do I do that? Im very concerned about weight gain. Had cancer in spine, steroids pushed me from 119 lb runner to 210 lbs, took two years to get to 158-160. Dont wish to gain back weight, painful on my small frame and back where surgery done. I eat healthy. My numbers are down but still all over had one 50 and typical is now 144-289 down from the 250+ fasting to as high as 550+. so any advice on Glucerna use, Lantus and swelling, Carbs and possible weight gain on Lantus appreciated. New here, New to Insulin. Thanks in advance.
