I have felt like crap for 4 months now.This month alone I experienced 4 low B/S which is new for me. I hate that feeling. Today I had an appointment with my endocrinoligist. I just new she would find something wrong. I told my wife i would probably have to start insulin today.
I went to my appointment and laid out all my symptoms.I told her i went from 1 cheat day to 3 maybe 4. I quit excersizing because i felt so sick all the time.
The doc said my A1C was 6.4 weight 188 my B/P was 125/70- i have not seen that number in 15 years. Reccomendations from doc> have only 1 cheat day. tighten up your carb counting. lose a couple pounds. Go back to excersizing. NO Insulin. you are the healthiest diabetic i have.
for being so healthy i sure dont feel very good. But she does come highly reccomended by many and my blood tests show nothing out of wack.
I have a general I dont feel good feeling. Like I always have the begining of a flu virus . you know you dont feel good but you can keep going on but you dont feel right. Dizzy, head aches. The doc didnt say much . I think she feels its from the b/s swings. reading the forums here thats what it seems like to me. Energy level is gone long gone.
She gave me Onglza 5 mg to take once daily. its suppossed to help stop the swings. Im leary of it because no one seems to like taking it. Its fairy new to the market.
Ive had blood work, MRI, EKG,. I pass it all. Im just gonna be this way. Hopefully the b/s swings are causing some of it. Im starting back into my pre diagnosis excersize program.Ive tightend my diet up again. I see.
I am also Type 2 and I have had that "flu feeling" for years now. The dizziness and lack of energy is a problem for me too. My current GP thinks it is the Metformin and, if so, it will have to be endured. The only thing that seems to help is exercise. I wonder if it has something to do with insulin resistance? I mean, if someone is truly Type 2, then their insulin is not working properly. I think that if insulin is hanging around in your body, it can make you sick. The onglza is supposed to help with that. Of course, I am only guessing. I hope the onglza works for you and that you will feel better soon. Please keep us posted. Joanne
