Hi! I’m so glad I’ve found this place. I’ve been flying solo trying to navigate this new type 2 journey. Of course I have a great family and doctor…but I also know I need a second opinion and don’t know where to turn.
A little background…I was diagnosed with A1C of 9.9 around August 1. Fast forward to now…I’m down 45 lbs from 213 to 168 and my A1C is now 4.8! This diagnosis scared me to death so I did all I could do.
But my doc still has me on 2000 mg of metformin daily and .50 ozempic weekly. My gut tells me this is crazy. If I’m at 4.8 shouldn’t I give myself a change to see if I can keep a low reading without all the meds? I don’t even know what kind of doctor I search for in seeking a second opinion?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
