First, I know I've been MIA again, but I promise it was for a last minute vacation and was much needed. I'll try to do better (but next week will be BUSY too). Anyway, I took some more blood tests on Saturday morning and my blood sugars were not so great. The 2 hours after eating was 164, so off to the Endo I go tomorrow for a GTT. I also dropped 54 points in my growth hormone, so I have to up that (which increases blood sugar, Carpel Tunnel, and swellling......like I have been fussing about for a while). I need to keep my HGH level around 200 or better and it's at 146 now and my muscle spasms are increasing again.
I realize that many of you are diabetic and do understand that 164 is not deadly, but the actual GTT is a concern right now. I've been hypoglycemic since age 12 (severe idiopathic reactive hypoglycemia) and knew that it would one day "switch" to diabetes. I took Met for quite a while, but I had to stop due to severe explosive bowel problems. (Sorry so graphic).... anyway, they have suggested that I will be placed back on Met (Glucophage ?sp) tomorrow after the test, but that the extended release is much better with the stomach.
I would appreciate any information on the Met/Met CR relating to stomach issues and other meds if anyone is familiar.
(These diagnoses are really starting to add up and not in a good way)
