I am fairly new to all this. I had gestational diabetes when I was pregnant with my son in 2005. The doctors threw some glyburide my way and told me not to overdo sweets or carbs and I would be ok after delivery. I do have a very strong family history of diabetes, so I should have known better.
My son is now 2 and a half, and I went for a checkup the other day (first one since he was born). I am faithful to watch after the health of my kids but I rarely think anything is wrong with me. She did a random blood sugar and it was 310, so she prescribed me 500 mg Metformin to take twice a day and told me to keep a log of my sugars and to come back in a month. She ordered some blood work, no results on that as of yet.
I really know nothing about what I am doing or what my numbers mean. My fasting numbers after 9 hours sleep are around 190 for the past week, before meals average 160, and 1 hour post meals are averaging 300. Is this bad? What else can I do? Do you think I need to call her to make an appointment for sooner than a month?
Thanks in advance
