So I've recently really started to really take my diagnosis of diabetes seriously. I avoided it for awhile. So I've been working on controlling my diet. And I've taken a low carb approach. My after meal numbers have been getting really good. Tonight after dinner it was 117 when normally they're up to 200. But what sucks is that my morning numbers suck. They're up in the 180s/190s. My doctor has put me on 2000mg of Metformin, so I would expect some improvement. But it seems like the medication isn't working at all. And I'm worried that the next step is insulin which I REALLY don't want.
So any suggestions? Am I doing things right or should I be doing something else? Do I need to just go back to my doctor and accept the fact that I might get put on another medication? I'm just really worried that there aren't any other options. Let me know if there's something that you've done to control your morning numbers! Maybe there's a trick to it? :-)
