Ok, my BG is jumping more than ever after meals - over 175 for sure at the hour mark and ending up around 150's at the 2. So not the worst case ever but unacceptable - I'm getting back to feeling sick - like wanting to throw up - not after every meal but that feeling is back. I just want to figure out something before it gets worse - I was sick with the flu for 2 months last year (ya, that long) and I think I'm finally paying for it. Was going to call my doctor but as my mom said...'what do you expect to accomplish?' I can't answer that. I don't know...can't go on insulin...I'm not that bad off...don't want to go on other orals...they won't work...+ I'm not to fond of the idea. So where does that leave me? I could loose weight...ok...I could cut carbs more...ok. But both are stop gaps since I can't keep on loosing weight - either from higher carbs or lower carbs. Treadmill? To a degree...I could work out more.
FBS normal - ya...in the 80's, BMI normal, lipids normal - triglycerides are in the 70's. I'm on 500 met a day to help control this jumping - I take a regular and cut it for meals to help stop the glucose from being produced. My first phase is shot to h*ll.
So where do I go from here? I won't take Actos etc - I can't see how it and a like would help me and maybe it will be worse for me. I've cut carbs way back to see if that helps...only issue there...I start loosing weight. I don't care to look like a walking stick. (BMI 22.5 currently...and with cutting my carbs back I will go to BMI 21 again pretty fast).
I feel like I'm crying over this for no reason. But I also feel like I'm caught between what to do. Guess there is no good answer.
Sorry...kind of wanted to rant out my frustration with this disease. No easy solution.
