I just was diagnosed Wed with levels over 500…Went to Dr and she put me on 10 units of insulin and 500 mg of Metformin twice a day…Just had the more bloodwork done on Thurs, such as the average 2.

I am still not sure if it is type 1 or 2…Have appt Monday.

I have had symptoms for at least 2 months, including very bad thrush and repeated yeast infections…Concerned because I dint see the Dr, i saw the NP… horrible up untill today..Feel a bit better today…Wondering if she is handling my case appropriatley…Thnx

Hello and welcome to DC. your numbers will come down the meds. need time to work. just keep testing your BS and eat lower carb meals. Your doctor should tell you to see a diabetes educator and learn everything you can about diabetes.
