Does it makes sense for my Endocrinologist to suddenly change my medication regimen with the success I was having (A1C 6.7 and trending down)? He wants me to not take Januvia anymore – so I stopped this morning. Lo and behold, my BGL is through the roof (160-240) today. He wants me to increase my Lantus and try to manage by increasing my dosage of that. Is that typical - preferred treatment using insulin?
I am staying on Glimipiride (4mg/day)
