Doctor's Visit tomorrow

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

So my morning glucose levels are still above the recommended range every morning. They vary throughout the day, but whether I eat too much or too little the day before, whether I exercise or not, they are high the next morning, and I can't possibly go swimming every 3 hours to get my levels back to normal.
I made up a pretty graph from all the data for my doctor (finally all that data analysis at work comes in handy for other situations, too). It's pretty clear that the medication (metformin) needs to be increased. I'm at the point where I want it doubled, or tripled, or something. I'm doing everything right, and the sugars are still too high. At least I'm only 2/5 to the maximum dose, so hopefully we can just increase it. I also want to be able to quit taking the second medication, Actos, because that's what's keeping me from losing weight.
I'm sure we'll get it adjusted, it's just a big hassle right now.

    Good luck! You are doing the lifestyle changes that I'll bet your doctor wishes every diabetic would do! emoticon

    I hope your appointment goes good. I think your dr will appreciated the data chart and all the hard work you have done.
