Hello all, I'm new here as of today, and I'm very glad to have found you and to be here with you. Here's my history.
I am 70 years old and 10 years ago I was told I was glucose intolerant. About three years later I was formally dx'd with type 2. Shortly after that I was put on meds. I was on Actos for a couple of years, then glimepiride (starting with 1 mg, now 4) then Januvia, which is horribly expensive was added.
My A1C went down from 7.2 to about 6.5 with the meds but then it began to climb slowly and now it is at 8.1 and my doctor decided to put me on Levemir at the beginning of this week -- plus the meds.
I will have to confess that even though I quit smoking cold turkey 30 years ago, I find sugar much more difficult. I'm afraid I cheat a little every now and then.
Can anyone tell me about levemir and type 2?
