I love this site, the forums are great! I don't know anyone in real life with diabetes, so this is a good way to get info for me.
My stuff is all high. Tested at 246 average, 10.2 AC1, bad bad bad. I am 52 and overweight, some bad habits... so this diagnosis was not really a surprise.
I was diagnosed 3 weeks ago. I have totally changed my eating, 100 or less carbs per day - super low on the sugar, per my doctor. And doing a bit of excersize MOST every day. I'm bad with that.... I know I have to get better and I will. I am on 500 metformin 2x/day, which I think is not enough, but doc is not ready to increase. She did refer me to endo, prob cuz I'm asking so many questions, but app't is not till end of May. I have been crazy checking sugar, 4,5 6 times a day.... not really getting better. Still in the 200's, mid to high. Rarely over 300 for the past week... doc says relax, it takes time. I'm so scared that something irreversible is going to happen!
Not sure there is even a question in there, I feel like I know what I have to do..... more excersize for sure. Try to get the endo app't sooner.... stop testing 4, 5, 6 times a day. lol
Anyway, any and all feedback is appreciated!
