And what dosage of medication/insulin do you take? Anything else you like to share, cholestrol level, bp…and how are you battling them?

I just recently found out that in May 2011 my A1c was 5.5! What is more I had done it while having discontinued control of Blood Glucose numbers using any medication. I haven't had an A1c that good since I became a Person with Diabetes in 1995! For me it was a low carb and high protein eating plan.

WooHoo!

My A1c is 7.1, just rec'd that number yesterday. In 2012, it was 6.5 and I was put on Metformin. In 2012, a new doctor took me off Metformin. Then, just got my Obamacare a few weeks ago…now I am back.

My blood sugar is still and always normal (131). My cholestrol — not sure the numbers — is normal. My BP, on Metropolol was 141/89 yesterday. I will begin Metformin again today…
And a liver sonogram soon…doctor thinks I have "Fatty Liver".

I was not given any advice to monitor daily. I need to lose weight, for sure, and doctor feels a change of lifestyle will move that A1c to normal readings and reverse Fatty Liver, lower BP.

Anyone else dealt with Fatty Liver?

My A1C is 6.3 as of last week!! It was 7.6 three months ago and 9.6 sic months ago.. I think to take it down little by little may help me to keep it down in the long run. I take 1000mg of metformin 2 times a day and 2 glyburide 5mg twice a day and Actos 30mg 1 time a day. I dont remember the rest but my dr said I have improved everything since the last visit 3 months ago… I am getting better with every thing little by little…

Two years ago I had my 3rd miscarriage and just found out that there is no hope and maybe I should just adopt. I am 37 and I am getting to the stage that it just will not happen for me. I went through a major breakdown and depression, I could no longer control my BS and I seem at that time to maintain it at the 200 to 300 level. I was taking Humilin R U-100, Welchol and metphorim, somekind of cholestrol medication. I felt tired all the time.

Well, I stopped feeling sorry for myself and finally woke up. Well 6 months ago my A1c was 10.4 and now it is 6.4 as of 2/14/2011. My doctor switched my insulin to Humulin R U-500 and made some changes on my pump. I totally did a 360 turn around and started to eat better and fit exercise into my daily life. It was the best Valentines gift ever! My goal is to get my A1c lower of course, but to also change my insulin back to the U-100. Another goal I am proud of is no more oral medication. I'm only taking insulin. YAY! How I battle with my struggles. Well, even though I'm having a bad day, I try my best to have a good day and try not to let it get me down. I have been through the depression and in 24 years for me I'm tired of feeling that way, but that's me.

I have had two readings over 140 but under 200. I have had three readings under 80. All the other readings have been between 80 and 120. I am working really hard to keep the levels at this range.

Zolar1
Zolar1 2010-09-23 23:03:33 -0500 Report

At time of my Dx on Nov 2009, I was 6.8
About 5 weeks later, it was 5.7
3 months later it was 5.8 (darned fish fry's during Easter)

My last a1c was at the end of July 2010, and was 5.3 & that was WITH spikes into the 200+ range too!

ALL of that without a single medication whatsoever!
Diet, exercise, and lots of water are the key. LOTS of water…

Note: water dilutes blood sugar. It takes 6 molecules of water to move one molecule of glucose in your body.

I followed my own diet. I let my glucose meter be my 'food boss'.
No popular diet and exercise plan can give you the results you need. Only the meter can do that, with some willpower. I can use this same system to lose up to 5 pounds of body weight in a single night, and I only weigh in the mid to upper 130 pound range for someone 5' 5" tall. I lost over 12" in my waistline.
Now, I can eat 11 slices of a large pepperoni pizza, and lose the weight within 1 & 1/2 days' time. I just don't do it often.

I also found out that Ovaltine chocolate milk powder jacks my blood sugars sky high, but a regular can of Pepsi doesn't… go figure?

I skipped the pills and went straight to Humalog pen as per my request. Had too much trouble getting blood sugars back down to safe levels due to the heat.

It does help keep spikes under control most of the time.

I did notice that eating, even with insulin, then taking a nap afterward is a BAD idea. Blood sugars are far too high.

Now, if I take my shot, then eat, then wait about 1/2 hour or so and begin walking for 20-30 minutes, my 2 hour post is typically quite good.

So, the key is to exercise and drink 1-2 quarts of water after eating. It helps the insulin work better.

Once I learn how my body reacts to the environment, food, and lifestyle, I will be able to get my a1c down to between 4 and 5.

My personal goal is 5.0 or slightly less.

I track my blood sugars on sugarstats if you want to look.

Lipid profile: I used the same food boss to get my lipid profile into the preferred range.

Blood pressure? Well, I can get that anywhere I want it too.
I got it as low as 80/48, but the doctor wasn't happy about it. I told her that all the charts I saw said to get it under 100. So I did. She laughed and said NOOO! That number is for the bottom number, not the top number! So, I raised it back up to around 110/64. It's not hard to do if you are very diligent about your health. Eat as low carb as possible, NO SALT AT ALL, exercise daily, and get your weight down into the middle of your normal weight range.
And of course, stress reduction and vitamins are helpful.

Soon, your blood pressure should drop like a rock, unless you have other problems.

About insulin and medications: be aware they can make you FAT in a hurry.
Don't be an 'insulin junkie' - ya know, someone with a 2L of sugary soft drink in one hand and a handful of insulin filled syringes in the other.

Any time you can use insulin instead of oral meds, DO SO. Talk to your doctor.
The shots don't hurt. The finger pricks DO.

The oral meds mess with your liver, and can have repercussions 20 years later.
Most oral meds won't give you the control over your affliction as well as insulin can. Of course, it depends on the person.

For those of you with an A1C that is above 6.0 for a year or more - talk to your doctor about getting Lantus. If already on Lantus or similar, you need to raise your dosage a bit. And definitely get some insulin. You have to test like this too:

1st thing when you get up (then eat right away)
2 hours post meal
right before each meal or snack
2 hours later
at bedtime

If you really want to be a stickler about your health, do an experiment.

Eat something, then check blood sugars every 10 minutes for at least 2-4 hours.
You can see how long your body takes to bring blood sugars back down.
This only applies to type 2 diabetics.

Once you establish the RATE of reduction, you can plan meals more efficiently.

Be aware that Dreamfields Pasta can raise blood sugars from 4 to a whopping 12 hours after eating!

Want to get even better blood sugar control? Eat some fatty beef or sausage with your carbs. It slows the carb absorption. I went nearly carb free and ate lots of fatty beef & sausage for months. My a1c dropped like a rock, and so did my bad cholesterol. Only way to raise good cholesterol is to exercise as much as possible.

About carbs: Carbs are the enemy, not fat. The food pyramid is upside down for the most part. Eat a Paleo diet and see what happens.

I would write more, but have to get to bed here in a few minutes.

Update:
I recently went back to my pre-diabetic lifestyle. I gained 25 pounds in a month.
My blood pressure went up 50%, and I expect my next A1C to be 20% higher here in 3 weeks.

So, I now know both directions of what food does.

High FAT & protein with very low carbs = a VERY VERY healthy body.

High carbs with low fat & protein = a VERY unhealthy body.

Eventually, when I get time, I will create the ideal food pyramids. One for non diabetics, and one for diabetics.

Anyone can eat the diabetic one…

My doctor suggest I follow the Biggest Loser Diet and Cookbook. I am just a few pounds overweight…something like 15 pounds. He said it was the healthiest diet plan to follow. Only its a life style change. I am type 1 and use an insulin pump and take pills. I started using the cookbook and the pills at the same time, about a week ago. Since then I have had trouble going low. I am rarely over 140. Mostly the level is in the 80's. But I have had too many lows now. So my advise is to try the diet. The cookbook has some wonderful tips and recipes. Plus keep a close eye on your sugar levels. I am not good at treating the lows. I tend to over treat because I get inpatient to get it up to normal.

Was diagnosed as Type 2 in July. At that time, my A1C was 6.2 and my Triglycerides were 606. I was put on Fenoglide and told to get a glucose meter and check first thing in the morning (fasting) and then 2 hrs after meals. In the two months I've tested, my fasting range is generally 90-109 and after meals anywhere from 92-127. I had lost 31lbs on my own prior to diagnosis, but since I've been diagnosed, I've been so concentrated on my diet and glucose that I haven't lost anymore. Yesterday, my glucose jumped to 185 and today it has been 145 so far. Haven't changed anything and don't understand this. I'm considering Dr. Bernstein's low carb plan, as I was a carb junky before and think this might jump-start the weight loss again. Any suggestions will be appreciated!

hello, new to the sight, just wanted to see what it was all about.
my A1C, this time was high around 9.6, my doctor increased my glyburide from 250 mg, to 500 mig. 2 x dailey, my test strips before the increasing was running between 115 to 175, now it has been running 250 to 500, I'm beginning to wonder if something is wrong with my tester?, after he changed my meds, I changed my diet, very low sugar, very lite meals, this has not changed my test results, this time my doc added Junuvea(sp), and it helped a little with test results, this is from the samples he gave me, so I went to have the prescription filled and even with my insurance the cost was over 200.00 which I cannot afford, so now what? I would like for him to put me back to my regular dosage to see if that will help to bring it down now that I'm trying to watch what and how much I eat. by the way I'm a over the road truck driver, and if I have to go on insulin, I will lose my job, hince lose my insurance. hince no meds ? IF any of you can help me out with some info I would appreciate it. also someone sent me a web site about a book from a doctor Whitaker, about Seven Deadly Diabetes Lies, I just didn't want to pay 60.00 for a book that wouldn't give me real information. example of what I eat a day, breakfast, 2 cans v-8, 2 cups dry ceral, either frosted sheredded wheat, or regular or honey cheerios, some type of fruite. lunch (maybe, maybe not), dinner either a salad, or one of those cambels completes, and maybe a handful of those flvored rice cakes in a bag. I haven't gained any weight during my 3 years of driving, but I haven't lost any either, (no time for excercise, while driving I will do like stomach crunches, where I lift my legs up and down, or i'll run in place. I know that isn't good enough, but don't have time to stop, I drive with my husband, so we are on the go like 24 7

thanks again
B

My last A1C was 6.4, down from 7.0 6mos. ago, and 7.4 before that. After 5 yrs of it being under 6.0; it started climbing last October. Endocrinologist increased Metformin, last March, from 500 mg. twice a day to 750 mg. twice a day. But it had very little effect. Then I got an abcess on side, short story, Dr. put me on ever increasing antibiotics. Well antibiotics didn't heal abcess, but by BG went right down to my former zone. SoI think my body had some inflamation going on since October, that the Rx Antibiotic worked on! So hope I can stay at 6.0 or lower.

do you have an 800 phone number on back of meter? If you can get customer service, they can talk you through it.

My last A1C was 5.5. I have been med free for over two years now. I follow the Bernstein program an it has been quite the success for me. My cholesterol is 162. My triglycerides are 37! Lost 70 lbs on the program and have successfully kept 60 of it off for the last three years. Blood pressure is 120/72. Not bad for a 62 year old man.

Wow, Skip nice job! I am not familiar with "Berstein Program", is it a diet plan?
