Sure, Cindy, you can whine all you want.  Ok, finished?  tongue    Now that the whining is done, tell us more about yourself, especially what kind of food you eat - because that is the key to your frustration, I think.

Are you eating any starches? Is there a possibility you may be turning into a Type1? (this is called a LADA) Keep your food and exercise diary along with your sugars for a few week, checking two hours after a meal at least once a day and we will have something to work with. We have been able to help people discover which direction their diabetes is going with this method. One of our members was going Type1 and it really helped to have all this information for the doc.

If you're a stubborn type 2 we might be able to help with that, also. I used to "watch what I ate" until I went on the 'nothing white except cauliflower and cottage cheese' food plan. When I was 'watching what I ate' I ended up on Lantus. Now I"ve lost weight and gotten off my insulin, back down to just metformin. Your mileage may vary but we might be able to help.

Take care and come back often. Even if we can't help we can listen.

Tell us what you normally eat, Cindy. Sometimes there are things you might not be aware of that could be affecting your BGLs.
