I wanted to give an update as I have been on treatment now for T2D for 31 days, I have settled into the daily routine and feel overall that everything at this point is heading in the right direction. My PCP is very encouraged and seemed to agree as well with the positive direction.
My first full day of testing BG was on 7/23/20. The before Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner numbers were 370 mg/dl, 306 mg/dl, 261 mg/dl. Today, 8/22/20 my BG before Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner numbers were 118 mg/dl, 125 mg/dl, 120 mg/dl. This improvement is with 1000 mg Metformin before morning meal and 1000 before evening meal, improved diet (much lower carb), greatly increasing my daily exercise, and weight loss; from 247 lb to 230 lb.
As to my Lipid Panel questions, I am looking for your experience and opinions, in full understanding that this is a Diabetes Forum, not a Doctors office.
Please see the uploaded capture below. How do the numbers look to you? Do you feel that the numbers warrant the addition of the statin Crestor (Rosuvastatin) 10 mg once a day? My PCP wants me to start taking it on Monday and then check the Lipid Panel numbers again when I do my full Lab work during the second week of September.
Thank you in advance for your time and anything you decide to share!
