I read quite a bit about diabetes and diets and medicines. I was diagnosed October 2016 with Type 2 and my A1C was 31.1, sugar level was 393. I was pit on Toujeo right away then they added Invokana. I ended up having my insides literally explode last March and didn’t know it until May. 4 months late I have a 3-day long heart attack. I will 58 in a little over a week. I was taken off of those meds and put on Metformin. First 500mg twice a day and now 1000mg twice a day. But my fast numbers in the morning have been rather high since I began taking Metformin and getting higher. For 4 months after my surgery I had normal numbers and no meds. Then the numbers began to increase slowly. Most mornings my levels are around 180-230. I do not have insurance and can’t find a diabetic doctor who will let me make payments for that stupid “New Patient Fee”. Everything that I’ve read points to Dawn Phenomenon. How do I get this under control? I’m taking ALL of my meds as prescribed and even added the Apple Cider Vinegar tabs. I would appreciate an help and advice that I can get.
Thank you so much,
