I have a doctor who listens to me. She wants me to try Januvia if the increase in one medication doesn't lower my blood sugar levels. At least this gives me time to research Januvia and three months to see if a simple increase of my usual medication helps. I have been on the same medication for 17 years and I realize that after time some medications lose their effectiveness. At least she is listening to the stress I am under with family matters and is giving me three months to see if my body will respond to a higher dosage in medication. I know from past experience that when my sugars are under control, I find it easier to lose weight. I am also going to test more often. Doctor wants to see some of my levels 2-3 hours after meals. That will be hard for me to remember. I will do my best. At least she is talking different medications and not insulin! I will breathe easier now. Up next Dentist on Wednesday! Yuck - I know no good news there!
