Today I start my new medication - the birth control pill, Yasmin, and Glucophage. The pill will help to regulate my periods, which will in turn help me to regulate my blood sugar. The glucophage is a trial run for a month.

When I spoke to my doctor yesterday, he agreed that my current insulin taking wasn't working. He noticed all the lows on my logs, and suggested that we give glucophage a trial run. I'm really glad to be changing my medication, particularly as he said that the glucophage wouldn't cause any hypos. I didn't take any insulin yesterday, but, like clockwork, I had my midmorning low this morning (more than 24 hours after my last insulin dose). I'm hoping to see the end of them soon!

Well, I feel bad, and I think it's the Yasmin. I've only been on it for 5 days, but I've been a zombie for the last 2. I phoned my doc and he said to go off it. I googled the side-effects, and it says that Yasmin causes "carbohydrate intolerance". If I had known that before I'd started it, I wouldn't have waited so long to quit it. Hopefully tomorrow will be better!
