Hello all. My husband has been diabetic for about 6 years. He is an over-the-road truckdriver and is pretty much left to his own devices to manage his diabetes. Recently he was home and had recieved a new glucometer. One morning we decided to test my sugar. I suspected that I was borderline as I was experiencing symptoms but did not want to achknowlegde them. I was shocked when my fasting blood sugar was 384. We called my doctor and she immediately ordered and A1C and scheduled an appt to see her. The called a few days later with a script for 2000mg metformin a day. My A1C was 12.8. My blood sugars are lowering running between 120-170. I am struggling with the side effects of metformin. On the plus side running to the bathroom this often should take care of my exercise right? lol The shock is wearing off a bit, still struggling with the carb counting, why cant they make things simple?
