As may of you know I was diagnosed T2 about 9 months ago. I have done really well and 3 months ago my A1C was down 5.8. But the past 6 weeks to 2 months I have had a difficult time with control especially my fasting numbers. They have gone as high as 190 and average 135-160. I am just wondering if it is time to tweek the meds. Additionally in this time I have gained weight 5-7 lbs.

Just wondering what to expect when I go for blood work on Friday!

Diabetes is about adaptation. What worked yesterday might not work tomorrow so you have to move on to the next thing. You may be able to tweak your diet, you may be able to tweak your exercise or you may need to talk to your doctor about tweaking your meds. Whatever it is you just have to realize it's not your fault and you can get back on track.

Just an FYI - hba1c was 6.4 (not bad) and glucose serumn 150! For now we have increased night time meds. Tonight 89 2 hr. after dinner … let's see what the AM brings!!!

In my opinion, these are questions you need to ask your dr. This "honeymoon stage" as you call it may be a guideline for the dr to see how you are reacting to meds, diet, stress, etc. I would make sure I would discuss this with him/her.

As I said I have my appt. on Friday. Just wondering if it is a typical progression. I know that no two people are the same so you just never know!
