My type 2 diabetes

#1

I am an eighty years old type 2 diabetes patient. I am having type 2 diabetes from more than 30 years. I am taking 30/70 insulin, 40 units before breakfast, and 20 units before dinner. I am not having any diabetes complications till now. I do know about the future. My most recent lab results are:
fbg…105 mg/dl.
ppbg…143 mg/dl.
HbA1c…6.1%.
I think they are normal.

Welcome to TuD davidtype2. I am 79 and I have had T2 for 10 years. I am still on oral medication, but lately my HbA1c has been creeping up to 6.9. The Dr. has added Jardiance to my medication list.

Welcome to the group. You seem to be doing well. Do you do any kind of exercise? I feel that is the key to a good type 2 life style. Nancy50

@davidtype2 welcome, and please do share the secret of your diabetic success. Is the fountain of youth in your back yard?

Welcome😊 Sounds like you are doing a great job! My neighbor has type 2 but she is 90 and has many problems so they will not put her on insulin unless she is in hospital sometimes.
