Ok guys I am at a bit of a stand still and I'm totally frustrated with my body right now :(
Saw my endo last Monday and it was bad news. Not only had my A1C gone from 6.5 to 7.5 but she revealed that my liver isn't functioning up to par.
Before my appointment I was taking Januvia 100mg, Metformin 500mg 3x a day. But because Metformin is contraindicated in people with liver problems she switched me to Januvia 100mg and Glimeperide (Amaryl) 4mg at breakfast and at dinner.
Since my appointment I have been VERY careful with what I eat. Eating 1500-2000 calories a day and drastically limiting my carb intake. It doesn't matter what I do, my sugar won't come down! It was 250 after lunch so I went to an intense aerobics class and it only came down 10 points! After dinner last night I was 365 and this morning bg was 188. This numbers are so weird for me. My endo said to take Glipizide 10 mg XR if my sugars are high but that doesn't help one bit.
I don't want to eat because my sugars are so high but then if I follow that way I'm only eating 500 calories a day and that's not good either,
It's just really frustrating because I feel like I'm trying so hard to eat healthy and exercise and my body just isn't cooperating. Has my pancreas completely stopped working? Have I reached the point where I'm going to need insulin? :_(
Any advice would be much appreciated. At this point I wanna throw my meter in the trash and say "whatever" but I know that won't help me in the long run.
