Recently, for the past two weeks, my fasting blood sugar has been well above 200, and it doesn’t go down all day even with my diet and Metformin. It has been extremely hard for me to wake up in the morning, and when I do wake up, I have a horrible headache, my bladder isn’t full (and I know urinating a lot is a symptom), and I’m thirsty really really bad. I was recently told about Cinnamon, and how it can help metabolize sugar faster. I just started Cinnamon 500mg yesterday, but I can’t check my sugar now because I’m out of strips. So I’m really scared now. I just got over a yeast infection, which I learned diabetes can do that to you.
It’s either my Metformin needs to be increased, or I can possibly have Type 1. I don’t know. I possibly am becoming completely insulin dependent. I need some advice. I’m going to my doctors to get a blood draw, but I don’t know when because I currently have no insurance.
