FDA Issues Public Health Notification on Glucose Monitoring Technology

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today advised health care practitioners and patients against using certain glucose monitoring technology that employs a specific test strip when the patients are also receiving therapeutic products containing non-glucose sugars.Non-glucose sugars contained in some therapeutic products such as peritoneal dialysis solutions and certain immunoglobulins can falsely elevate glucose results, which may prompt excessive insulin administration. These…See More

"How utterly frustrating! Does seem like it's worth talking with your doctor about changing to Levemir, or that you don't need basal at all since Regular does last longer. I often have the roller coaster effect after dinner. Perfect (or a…"

Hi A, everything's normal or within normal range for me. I have a BMI of 19.9 & good cholesterol. However, when I eat a carby meal, my 1-hr postprandial goes through the roof (180's-200's) and it takes a few hours before it comes down to below 140 without meds. My A1C was 7.2 and my fasting 128 when I was diagnosed. So I'm taking Metformin 500mg/2x a day, diet & exercise. Plus diabetes didn't develop overnight for me, I was diagnosed as prediabetic 4 years ago. By cutting out all grains, most breads, pasta, fruits, I am now able to achieve "almost" normal BG's with metformin and a gazillion other supplements I am embarassed to take even take because I do not even know if they're doing me any good. How about you? Shots instead of meds?
