I have been on the medication rollercoaster since I was DX'ed in March with T2 Diabetes. I started out on the old standby...Metformin. Then went to Metformin ER, Glipizide, and now added Lantus 35 units at night. My daily Blood Sugar levels are Horrific... I know that my diet isn't helping much...I swear I am trying. The Lantus is making me gain weight,(the Dr. told me this would happen)...Here's the strange thing.
I started out with my A1C being 12.5!!! That was only a few short months ago. Now it is 7.8!! I don't get it. My daily's are soooo freakin bad but my A1C is actually good. How does that happen?
I hate Boats!!!!

Thanks Jim...I thought I knew what I was taking but I really didn't. If I was anything other then Type 2 wouldn't I have known it years ago? I haven't been to
endocronologist yet...just my primary. Should I ask a little more forcefully about other Types?
