"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…"

Molly replied to Mrs.Poth's discussion 'Any Advice?'
"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…"

"Crystal, I've been sorting through your emails and I'm sorry if I didn't see it. Have you been diagnosed with Type one or two? If you are still losing weight and your numbers are that high you are probably type one. What insulin are…"

"Well, finally got my results ! Took quite a while , but he said everything was normal . He said that it could possibly be me exercising . Because , to be honest with you , before I was diagnosed , I did absolutely no exercise . So , may be that…"

Mrs.Poth replied to Ilhaam's discussion 'Need a little love'
"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…"

"Losing that much so fast is nice for the waistline but not for the body. If the bs are high rapid weight loss follows but I would imagine yours are good."

"Microalbumin has to do with protein in the urine. I'm not sure what it means, what causes it, or what to do about it, but I have that test about every 6-8 months."

Scott E replied to Mrs.Poth's discussion 'Any Advice?'
"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…"

Mrs.Poth replied to Mrs.Poth's discussion 'Any Advice?'
