I finally got a BG reading under 100!! 97 to be exact!! I was so happy when I saw that number come up on my monitor! Now maybe all my numbers will be good and I won't have to go on Actos!

My appointment today went pretty well. She was happy with how my numbers were going down and she added another pill to my evening dose to help with the morning highs I have.

I finally got a morning reading under 200 this morning. 184 to be exact! And according to SugarStats.com my BG has went down 12% so I'm getting there!

I'm trying to read all I can about type 2 but I keep getting conflicting information. Eat carbs, don't eat carbs, don't eat fruit, eat fruit...It's all very confusing!
My numbers have showed improvement, but not the kind of improvement I was hoping for. I've got to go to the dr. on Friday for a follow-up so hopefully we can work something out then.
