kingtiger commented on Emily Coles's event 'Metformin discussion in the TuDiabetes open chatroom'
"The VA will not refill my Metformin until they get a urine sample. A1C was 9 last time. I am about out and was taking 1,000 mg twice a day. Wonder what happens now while I have none left?"

Thats great Kingtiger. You have taken what is possibly the best steps you can make toward gaining control of this monster.

Frequent testing, carb counting and logging will help you see what works food wise and what causes you to go high. Controlling your diet whether you need to lose weight or not is the most important thing especially for a Type 2.

If you carry a smartphone you might try one of the apps for logging. I use "Track-It" and found it much easier that paper logs.

You have embarked on things that T2's almost never do. I think you will reap the rewards.

Welcome kingtiger from a fellow Volunteer from Murfreesboro. There is so much information here at TuDiabetes. There are groups for people with like circumstances or interest. Blog posts where members convey their thoughts and experiences. And there are the forums where we come together for discussions.

I see you’re Type 2 you might want to visit the T2 group.

Please feel at home, you are with friends
