I went in for my follow up after my doc changed me off of Avandamet to only metformin (same dose as in the Avandamet), and lower (1/2 of the original) dose of bp med (enalapril). She said it had been 3 months, so redid my bloodwork to see how I was doing. All of my lipid numbers are continuing to drop, but my HbA1c is up to 6.1 from 5.6 in February (and a year ago). I'm happy that my cholesterol numbers are in the normal range for the first time EVER, but I'm worried about the 6.1. The sheet says I'm still below goal, but I'm still worried. I'm still having issues with HIGHS in the AM and lows in the afternoon. My sugar readings are continuing to be all over the place since I started my bp med. It's a shame that this happened, because my sugar readings had been very stable until the high bp started. My bp reading was nearly normal on my visit....
(results... Cholesterol 193 down from 219, Triglycerides 166 down from 208, HDL 51 down from 52, LDL 108 down from 125, A1c 6.1 up from 5.6)
Doc's comment: Doing great!
What do you all think?
