Why does my body seem to adapt to the medicines I take? My levels do better with the introduction of meds, but usually within 3 months, it is like I don't take the meds and I am back at the beginning.
It would be unusual for a medicine to only work for 3 months. Diabetes does change over time, and for some people, these changes can occur more rapidly than for others. Maybe the medicine you are currently taking is not the right type for you. Maybe when you start a medicine, you are more careful with your carbohydrates and exercise. Once you are in the habit of taking the medicine, you may just not think about your diabetes as much and start to eat differently and exercise less. It could also be that you have type 1 diabetes but it is of slow onset. If you really feel like the medicines are only helping for a short amount of time, it may be a good idea for you to consult with an endocrinologist. There is a unique sort of type 1 diabetes called LADA (Latent Autoimmune Diabetes of Adults). Ask your doctor if you might have this type. For those who do, oral medicines will not work to treat the diabetes and they need to take insulin.
