I'm 29 and new to the diabetic scene. My biggest fear is becoming a non compliment diabetic who loses a foot. My fasting sugar was 313 when I found out. Both sides of my family have it and I am overweight but working on it. I started the summer at 365 and this was well before I found out about my t2. I was diagnosed at 335 and am proud to say I am at 316. I forgot what a simple carb looks or tastes like. Junk is not an option at this point in my life because I want to stick around. I started biking again on the road with a hybrid and recently started mountain biking. My hobbies are now including healthy habits and changes. Clothes fit better and the person I see in the mirror walks a little taller. With that said, I am on metformin 2000 mg a day. My morning sugar sounds like 140/150 on average now. I have a lab appt Friday. What kind of medicine changes should I expect because I know I'm still running top high?

I sure will. As of right now just testing fasting. I'm using myfitnesspal to track calories and exercise. Also using a fitbit for steps.

Congratulations on all the changes you've made, and I love your positive, I'm-going-to-manage-this attitude. Are you testing blood sugar after meals, or only fasting? Your physician will also take into account your A1c plus the lifestyle changes you've made. Let us know what he suggests, OK? ~Lynn @Glucerna
