Well, I got my test results back, and I am officially a Type 2. My A1C was critically high though, and my liver function was extremely elevated, so I’ve had a prescription change. I’ve been switched to Januvia and I’m now temporarily on insulin until I can see an endocrinologist. 10 units once a day to get my fasting levels down. Thank goodness for free samples, I have enough meds for a few months. I’m anxious to see how I do on the new medicine, my old medicine kept my bgs fluctuating between the 100s and 200s.
SHOULDN’T YOU BE ON AT LEAST 20 UNITS - 30 ONCE A DAY? IF YOUR A1C IS HIGH LIKE OVER 12 YOU SHOULD BE ON INSULIN, DIABETES MED AND A SECOND DRUG LIKE METFORMIN. I HAVE MINDS UNDER CONTROL LIKE THAT SINCE JANUARY. I HOPE THE DOCTOR IS DOING EVERYTHING FOR YOU, GOD BLESS YOU ON THIS. ASK THE DOCTOR ABOUT THIS CAUSE HE CAN ALSO CONSULT THE ENDOCRINOLOGIST TO BACK IT UP. THE SOONER THE BETTER FOR YOU TO FEEL BETTER. LET ME KNOW HOW IT GOES. HERE FOR YOU, PATTI
I think he’s keeping the insulin dosage low because of the elevated liver function, which indicated some liver problems, then after seeing how a small dose affects me he may elevate the amount.
well, this is so frustrating with this disease because no two people are alike so they have to observe for a while just to see whats good for us. best of luck on this and let me know how it goes. patti
