Just before I was diagnosed as diabetic, I started having these episodes where I "lost time"--at work and at home, normally between 1 - 3 pm. Sometimes later. I kept asking my mom who is a diabetic,…Continue

I take Metformin HCL ER 500MG Take 1 tablet twice a day. But I take it once a day. Usually my blood level is 135 or under. If its 108,or around that I dont take it at all. Is it okay to that? I feel like if my blood level is fine and I take the Metformin it will make it lower. I may be wrong but can someone let me know. Thanks! ^_^

I read on another blog that a person said they didn't have "real" diabetes but had strong insulin resistance. Some how I think this is bad information. How can you have one without the other and it not be diabetes? They said their glucose levels are all over the place. How true is this?

On Thursday, May 22 the tuDiabetes chat room will host an interactive discussion on Starting Insulin.

If you're thinking of starting insulin therapy, worried about it, or curious and just seeking more information -- this is the place (and the time)!

I have talked about my mother several times on this site... my mother passed away this past Saturday... I can't say that I am terribly said about her passing. I am more anger about the treatment I have received from my sister and some family members. I am the oldest of 4. My BS levels have been super high since this happened. My stress has been exacerbated by the evilness of my youngest sister that has done everything possible to cut me out of my inheritance and the obituary. Gosh I am shaking sometimes. I have to stop and rest to calm myself down. I have been doing a lot of emotional eating too. thanks for listening. While my mother was in the hospital I had to receive info about my dying mother from my uncle because my sister didn't want to talk to me. She refuses to do the will so I can get my portion of the inheritance. Just being a super spoiled brat...Why do I need this .......

In Type 2, your pancreas may be secreting less insulin, but all along you are insulin resistant in varying degrees. It's a classic 2 step!

Comment by Christalyn on May 13, 2014 at 11:59am

Does anybody remember an article (or 2) about the pancreas of a TYPE 2 is functioning at 50% or less at the time of diagnosis? I remember reading this some where. I had a person tell me that most Type 2's are more insulin resistant as oppose to having pancreatic damage or a less functioning pancreas. Any thoughts.

Sorry to hear about your mother.....and lets move on this page, keeping civil...ALL of us.

Comment by Christalyn on April 5, 2014 at 7:25am

I got a message last night my mother might be on her death bed. I am not sure how I feel about this. She was evil to me so I don't have the normal feeling a person should have. just not sure.
