Help!! I have been officially a Diabetic since March of this year and already I feel doomed. I started out on 500 mg. a day of Metformin and eventually was up to 2000 mg. a day....Had bad nausea so Dr. put me on Metformin ER 1000 mg. at night. Blood sugar started rising so he put me on Glimeperide 2mg. in the morning and the Metformin Er at night. Blood sugars are higher then ever and I'm not eating any differently. Went back to the Dr. and he changed me to Glipizide 10 mg. in the morning and still taking the Metformin ER at night....still no change...He upped the Glipizide to 10 mg. in the morning and another 10mg at night along with the Metformin Er. Still getting higher... Is it possible that I am actually Type 1 instead of Type 2? How would I know?
What's next? Insulin? I almost wish he would put me on insulin at least I might get to know what having normal sugar levels is like....
I hate Boats!!!!
