I got a terrible scare yesterday during my daily exercise which is part of my program to manage my T2 condition. I thought I was going to call 911 because of non-stop palpitation, uneasyness and disorientation. BG test revealed 67 two hours after dinner. The meds that my doc recommended are: Glyburide 5mg, Metformin 500 mg and Actos 15 mg daily. My body thinks this dose is way too much and it is reacting by giving me hypogycemia. I stopped metformin today and it seems to be working…symptoms of hypoglycemia stopped and I was able to bike around the neighborhood for 45 mins without any problem. BG today 2 hours lunch is 80. I am planning to take Actos 15 mg every other day…instead of daily. Am I doing the right thing? I think diabetics should have the right to alter dosage depending on how it is affecting your body…most of the time the primary care physician is not available for phone consultation.
