So, I was recently diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes on Nov 6. As soon as I was diagnosed I changed my diet completely and I have been hitting the gym 4 times a week and walking on my breaks at work. On the weekends, I have either ridden my bike a few miles or walked and even took a hike.
I have kept a log of my BS and I am usually 120 to 130 when I first wake up. I have breakfast typically an egg and egg whites with a glass of milk and a bit of cheese. I check my BS again around 10 and it's in the mid 90's, 2 hours after lunch it's around 105 to 110 and in the evenings after dinner it's about the same too.
On a positive note, I noticed my eyes were bothering me when I wore my glasses. For the first time in years I can see my computer screen without them as well as read my alarm clock, street signs etc. Has this happened to any of you? Should I go get a new prescription? Or wait a while?
I went to my doctors office Friday and she prescribed 1000mg of Metformin and 5mg of glyboride. My A1C was 11.9, I'm afraid of starting the meds because I heard it's worse of your bs is too low. I am determined to not allow diabetes to control me.
What should I do? Take the meds??
