Hi Group - I lost my job of 39 years and currently do not have health insurance. I was taking glipizideXL and Janumet for my Type 2 diabetes. I asked my physician to change my prescriptions to just glipizide and 500 mg metformin twice/day as the other medications were too expensive. I have stopped checking my blood glucose because of the cost of the strips. I try very hard to watch what I eat and to exercise. Last week, my sister visited and (using my own stylet) I used her glucose monitor to check myself as it has been a while. I was shocked to see a reading of 425. My fasting readings have never been good…running around 200, but the 425 has me scared. Suggestions, anyone?
