momto3 replied to guitarnut's discussion 'Insulin?'
"yeah i did and they came back negative,so i'm being treated as a type 2. It's frusterating explaining to people that i'm type 2, because I dont meet any of the criteria. Who knows :)"

"Hey, I feel your frstration! I am a thin type 2 on amaryl and am maxed out on it, I am on the highest dose of it and also take onglyza, blood glucose is worsening and dont know when they are going to finally give in and start insulin. I am in no…"

"I am a thin type 2 without metabolic syndrome, I am 5'7 and 110 pounds. I take amaryl and eat very low carb, but sadly, it's getting harder to control,which my endo told me would happen, because it is a progressive disease. Best of luck!"

"i am a honeymooning, or i WAS a honeymoning t1 and for a while i took only basal to cover my food, making sure i ate low carb-under 20 carbs a meal, usually 15-and alwaysexercised directly afterwards, usually an hour walk. this worked for me for a…"

"You should consider some alternative snack options. I would consider a half a pack of peanutbutter crackers as an emergency response option only. Celery sticks filled with peanut butter or cheese would provide bulk and protein without as many carbs.…"

Stemwinder (Gary) replied to momto3's discussion 'would a very small amount of insulin be better?'
"I have read that you pancreas stores insulin for when bg spikes. If you're barely getting by with your natural insulin production then basal insulin might give it the help it needs to get prepared for the next meal. Might work, who knows, but…"

"A package of peanut butter crackers would run me up over 200 too, but I'm T1. I don't think that commercially prepared peanut butter crackers are the best snack for a PWD. The crackers are made with refined flour and the peanut butter has…"

momto3 replied to momto3's discussion 'would a very small amount of insulin be better?'
"Thanks! I really thought peanut butter crackers wouldn't be too bad bc the protein would slow down the absorbtion of carbs! I really have no idea what to eat. I eat a lot of protein most of the day eggs,lunch meat, cheese but still eat some…"

Zoe replied to momto3's discussion 'would a very small amount of insulin be better?'
"Basal insulin is not designed to cover food spikes, momto3. If you are generally spiking two hours after your meals it is bolus insulin you need (and probably basal as well at least soon)."

acidrock23 replied to momto3's discussion 'would a very small amount of insulin be better?'
"I think the general consensus is that elevated bg is not good. I am T1 so not an expert on T2 but I don't like to run up > 200 very much so I would prefer taking insulin to that, but maybe that's easy for me to say, since I take insulin…"

Ok so I posted on here a couple of weeks ago about my meds and the the problem with them. I am meeting with a cde on friday to discuss weight loss, what food would be best and bg numbers. I have lost a lot of weight,looking kind of sickley and bg is is acting crazy!! I had a pack of peanut butter crackers and a diet dr.pepper and bg one hour later was 219. it seems even small amounts of food send it up too much. So would a very small dose of basal insulin keep those spikes from happening? Am…See More

I do not get scared by diabetes as I have had it for 66 years and have lived through good and bad times so enjoy life and diabetesand live a long time

Try not to get too scared by some of the people who post back to your discussion(s) - they are only worried for you. It looks like diabetes is all new to you, hopefully you get things sorted out - for the short time you may have higher BG's then you are supposed to be - don't be worried it will have overall damage to you. I went thru' some bad times when I was younger as a diabetic - and so far - touch wood - no bad results from it (just watch me kick the bucket tomorrow because I ran up the stairs too quickly to my endo's office - he's only the 2nd floor - but still - I'm kinda out shape). Let's wish each other good luck in our endeavour to get to healthy BG's!! We can be a team!!! And trust me - you will have other great team members here rooting/tooting for you.
