I was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I can live with that and it does run in my family so it was likely to happen. I am currently having a little difficulty in understanding whats happening. I do believe I need a new dr. which I have a appt for in March but maybe someone can give some feed back as to my concern. I am not sure if they are valid or not since I am so new at this. I was on insulin 5x a day to start. Then 2x's a day. My dr said we are weening you off insulin so you can go on the pill form. I also had trouble keeping my levels high enought they were in the 60's, I am on 4 pills a day two in am and 2 @ dinner and 1 actoes (extremely expensive-do I really need this?) I am constintly in the 80's now and continually drinking juice or soda or fruit to keep my levels up. My dr. wants me between 100-140 and I do all I can to try to get to 100. Is this normal? I thought I was going to fight to get my levels down not up. Anyone have any insight on this????
