Hi everyone -
I have an appt tomorrow morning to meet with an educator and officially go off oral meds and onto insulin. I could stay on oral meds for a while but I’m considering trying for baby #2 and my current numbers are not acceptable for pregnancy. They’re not really sure if I’m type 1 or 2 but my endo is leaning toward early Type 1.5. Anyway, I went off metformin and Januvia end of last week and within a day started to see my numbers go up. I heard it takes a couple of weeks for it to fully get out of your system but i pretty quickly start seeing post prandial numbers around 180. Anyway…to my reason for the post! Any advice for questions to ask tomorrow? I already have a list! Also, what the heck does a “sliding scale” mean? I can’t seem to find a straight forward answer. Is it different than administering bolus insulin based on carb counting or the same thing?
