Hello everyone !
I'm new to the world of diabetes and wanted some answers from some that have been here for a while.
Two years ago, at 35, I was dx with heart failure/cardiomyopathy. However, I had NEVER had any problems with any high blood sugar, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, etc. But, once I started taking beta blockers, diuretics, and a whole slew of other things.....everything has gone haywire. 6 months ago, my A1C was 6.6 and my "very cautious" Internist wanted me to start meds...... Last month, it checked out at 6.4 and my fasting blood sugar is running around 104. I feel like starting Fortamet is a little premature at this point........ I have had a couple of finger sticks that have been around 125/130 in the am.
