Hi Nancy. Glad you found this place, but sorry no one has answered you yet, unless they privately emailed you. I'm new to this part of Healing Well, so not sure about how the board works. I can generally be found in the Heart section.
You didn't say much about your doctor and what she or he has said to you about this. I'd definitely call your doctor. Obviously the insulin is not working at this time. Either you need more, and it sometimes takes some time to get the correct doseage, or perhaps they can give you a different form of oral medication to add to your regime. I think there are lots of types of oral meds. I've been on insulin alone for close to 10 years now and had to gradually increase my doseage at first. That is way too high for a fasting blood sugar. Glad you are testing!
Have you been to see a dietician? That's a very important part of diabetis care. Better yet, diabetis education because you get both information about your diabetis as well as the dietician's help. Knowledge is power.
I wish you all the best and hope that you are doing better today! Hugs, Kathy
Happy grandmother of Amanda, Alayna, Wyatt and Ezekeal. Had my first heart attack, and hopefully the last ever, the first of January. I want to stay around for a long time in case these 2 sons of mine decide to reproduce one day. Had a CYPHER stent January 5, 2004. Diagnosed with CAD and CHF. Currently doing cardiac rehab and feeling stronger every day.
