Hi - I'm concerned for my sister who is in a nursing home living situation. She is 52 and has been diagnosed as Type 2 about a year ago. They were monitoring her blood more closely but she's on metformin and is supposedly "under control" now. Yet when I ask her what her readings are - before breakfast - she says they are usually 2 hundred something or even up to 400! Is this really under control? Their diets are a joke - I see very little or no difference in what she eats versus anyone else - just as many carbs and starches, maybe the dessert is half size? I don't know what her a1C level is.
Please let me know if I need to push for more frequent testing, change in meds, diet…thanks!
