I am new to T2, on Metforim 500mg 2x/day. Have increased my exercise and watch everything that I eat. Have reduced my initial BS from 350 to the 150's. I have read the blogs and have been eating to my meter. During the weekends, I am active and my before eating numbers have been in the 120's and after eating 140-150. My first thing in the morning numbers are in the 150-160 range even though I eat a healthy snack (veggies & a little hummus) before bed. However, during the week when working my morning numbers are in the 170's and after eating lunch have been in the 200's. When I started the Metforim I took one at 6am and one at 6pm. Then I read that high morning numbers can be a result of taking the Metforim too early in the evening so I started taking them at 11pm and 11am with my snacks.
I am very frustrated that I am eating per the meal plan for carbs designed for me by the diabetes educator and watching what I am eating to see if something isn't working well with me causing higher numbers. My numbers are good on the weekends but the week days are a mess. My exercise habits are basically the same during the week as the weekends, with the exception of household chores, laundry, etc. I know that I have only been at this one month, but I feel like I am doing something wrong. Am I just being too crazy and causing myself more stress? Any thoughts would be most helpful.
