Hi all, I am not new here but usually post on the CP forum...I had to go to see my Dr. yesterday about my Diabetes...I was DXed in March 09 with T2 and have been on so many pills and now do the Lantus Pen at 50 units a night...I also take 1000 mg. Metformin ER at night and Glipizide 20 mg. in the morning. I hate to admit it but I have gained 20 lbs. in the past few months...My eating habits aren't the best and I know that...My readeings run around 195 - 265 daily with nothing below 195 at all...I am worried. My vision is blurry all the time but as far as the Eye Dr. is concerned my vision is good. no, Great!! So it must be the high sugar... I also have trouble with my toes being numb all the time. Although my PM Dr. says it's not Diabetic Neuropathy...it's related to my spine problems.
My Dr. did a bunch of blood tests and a urine test for Ketones...it came up that I had trace amounts in my urine..He said that my body was "eating" itself for nutrition...Yuk!!
I am starting to eat better and hoping that it's not too late for me. I am 42, weigh 224lbs. and am 5'7" tall. I don't excercise much because of my CP issues and I have Knee problems and wear a brace. I usually worry about the pain issues but need to focus on my Diabetes...
Thanks for listening..
