"I agree with the quick drop theory. In cases like this, I trust my gut, and not always the machine. If I'm feeling low, but my meter doesn't agree, I usually treat it anyway. My nurse told me that one time. I'd rather need a little…"

"Boy can I relate to these posts. I've been diagnosed about 2 years ago, and my doc and I have been trying since then to get it all to the numbers HE wants. Sometimes I get so frustrated with him because I feel like crap when my numbers are…"

"Dear Esmom. It is a shame that we have to wait for insulin until our own pancreases are toast. With some basal like lantus or levemir and humalog you should do well. Weight gain is a problem if you have any insulin resitance. May need a lot of…"

"Thanks everyone! That explains the sliding scale thing much better. And just to clarify, my doctor is NOT putting me on a sliding scale. I've just been doing a lot of research about starting insulin and that terms keeps coming up and I wanted…"

Just curious... because I saw your post from April.

I was just put on 100 mg of Januvia, added to my 2000 mg of Metformin daily because even with low carb and lots of exercise I am still almost constantly in the 200s...

Have you been happy with Januvia? I am reading lots of conflicting information about side-effects which worry me, but in only three days my post-prandial readings are lower. I, too am worried about the roller coaster with insulin, but will eventually have to go on it according to my endo. Thanks for anything you can tell me.
