Okay so I am now PAST the point of frustration! My original diagnosis last January of type 2 diabetes eating WHATEVER I wanted my A1C was 6.1. Okay so after diagnosis I lowered carbs to 130 per day and exercised about 20 minutes a day A1C=6.0. After about 3 months my blood sugars were too high with the 130 per day so I lowered to 100 per day and exercised about 30 minutes per day A1C still 6.0. I am now at only 60-90 carbs per day and exercising about 45 minutes to an hour per day to acheive the same blood sugars if not WORSE! I am so frustrated and the diabetes has taken over every minute of my day..I have to revolve my life around when I'm eating so I can ride the bike or run every single time I eat and I am just wondering is it time to consider starting on meds?? I begged my endo at my last appt telling him I AM JUST TIRED! His reply was "if I get on meds I will become lazy" and that I need to stay off meds for as long as possible. I was thinking of going on a very low dose maybe even like 250mg Metformin once or twice a day??
Thanks in advance for all of the wonderful advice I know I will receive, you guys are awesome!
