I had gestational diabetes 3yrs. ago (3rd child). In June my A1c was 5.8 with a fasting of 91, on 850mg of Metformin daily and running 3 miles per day. My doc took me off medication. Then I broke my foot in Sept—severely. I haven't been able to exercise until clearence came from the Ortho on Friday. Weight gain is 12 lbs while sedentary. My numbers are now A1c of 6.0 and 121 fasting with carbs and 110 without carbs. 118 2hrs. after dinner. I am on 500mg 2xs per day of Met.
My question is why isn't the Met working? Does it stop working at some point? What do you do then? Are my numbers bad?
I ordered a new treadmill and recumbent bike due in Friday. I'm going to attack this AGAIN, just hoping I don't break something else!
Any suggestions or info on what numbers I should look at?
