Wow!! I didn't realize how many of us were Diabetic until recently.... I was DX'ed in March 09 with T2.. My Dr. started me on Metformin (the standard) and when he had upped me to the highest dose he added Glipizide to the mix....then he switched me to Metformin ER 1000 mg. at night, Glipizide 10 mg. in a.m., and Lantus 15 un*** at bedtime. I am now up to 70 units of Lantus, up and down on the Metformin ER but back to 1000 mg., and 20 mg. Glipizide. Just last week I found out that after my A1C went from 12.5 last year to 7.5 4 months ago, and now it's up to 9.7....sooooo, I'm gonna ask to be put on regular insulin and get rid of the pills (they make me sick).
Metformin is what most Dr.'s start you on....it's not working for me...
Let me know how it goes..
