Hi everyone , my name is Crystal. I'm new here , so nice to meet ya'll!! I'm getting ready to go to a doctor's appointment , but I value more then one person's opinion. Umm , I was diagnosed with…Continue
"I so agree with the other poster, 60 is pretty low and should be avoided. Some type 2s were hypoglcemics before being dx type 2. It is also a pancreatic issue and function of the system. Your numbers after eating are great, congrats on your hard…"
"Hmmmm....60 is technically a low, Normal is 83 for a non-diabetic. Up to only 109 after eating a meal with carbs wouldn't make you a type one, needs to higher for sure. I still think you should see an Endocrinologist, not just a family doctor…"
"I'm type 2 , my sugar levels stay only in the double digits. They go down as I exercise. They go up as I eat. And I take Metaformin , I think that's how you spell it. I take 500mg twice daily. I eat healthy , but every now and then I…"
"I'm glad your feeling better and not having any pains, but I'd be a bit skeptical of the "nothing's wrong" diagnosos. That just means that nothing was discovered in the tests that your doctor did. I'm not saying your…"

"I'm in the same boat as you , sweetie !! I always end up 'rewarding' myself when either I loose some weight or my sugar levels are so good . And it doesn't help that my husband and family isn't dieting . So when they go out…"
"Hi Crystal,I had issues a couple years ago when I started a new cholesterol medicine. The side effects for me were joint pain and weakness in my legs. Once I switched to a different one it went away. From your description, it sounds like you are…"
"My experience is that family doctors tend to be a jack-of-all-trades,-master-of-none. If that's all that you can get insurance coverage for, then I suppose that's who you must see, but I'd strongly advise trying to find an…"
"Yes! I am very proud , very shocked that I've lost so much weight , but I'm proud. I don't know why I loose a pound a day. They have me on Metaformin , and my doctor said that helps me loose weight , which I'm excited about. haha…"
