My A1c, is 5.5%,
Fructosamine is 198
Glycomark is 10.3
All seem to correlate with an A1c of approx 6%
I’m on Metformin ER 1500 mg daily, something has happened in the last few months that I’m seeing higher numbers, but my standard deviation is very low. I’m eating less than 20g of carbs per day (eating to my meter). I have an active job, and do weight lifting 3x weekly, bg’s are always the same, no matter what I do.
I wake up at 115-118mg/dl, then it increases to 130mg/dl about 30 minutes after waking up (no food yet) and then it stays there all. damn. day. Standard deviation is 5-7
Endo is no help & seems fine with Glycomark, Fructosamine and A1c
When I told him about the numbers I’m seeing, he just shrugged. I asked about increasing my Metformin and his response was ‘ok, but it’s probably not going to make much of a difference’.
I get the feeling he’s resistant to help me get lower bg’s, so I’m wondering how to go about getting a second opinion or how I should handle him.
Up until this past January, I was seeing double digits fasting & PP bg’s were well under 120, sometimes never moving from 90 or 100 mg/dl (low carb, less than 5g per meal). It just started creeping up since then I now I find myself with a lower a1c than before (5.7%) when the deviation was closer to 20-25.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
