Va-gram, you must be so frustrated! I'm not a doctor but here are my two cents. 1)
I think your meds need to be re-evaluated. You're on three medications for diabetes and your blood sugar readings are over 200??? That's way too high as you just wrote! 2)
Are you on any other meds? If you are, could they be interfering with these diabetes meds or could they be causing higher blood sugar numbers? 3)
You probably need to change what and how you're eating as well. I know you've been here on the forum for awhile and you know that we've talked about
cutting down on carbs and what works and what doesn't for people. Yes, eating more meats and vegetables is great. Don't think you need to cut out all fats or have fat-free food. Fats (and oils) in your food help slow down how fast you metabolize the food - and this is good so you're taking longer to deal with whatever carbs are in the meal which should avoid your blood sugar from rising quickly. Fats and oils also make you less hungry so you don't end up craving more food. 4) The lethargy could be from several things: meds, diet, weather, lack of exercise, emotions. And lethargy begets lethargy. If there are no reasons for you not to participate in exercise, you need to get moving. If there are not other health issues and the doctor says it's ok, then make a schedule for yourself for maybe 10 minutes a day to start and work yourself up to 15 or 20 minutes. You can do it. I did it. I completely turned my life around healthwise in the last 2 years. I know if I can, anyone can. Now, how are you going to take charge?
