I’m from Italy and i found this great forum about
diabet, what a wonderful thing
i feel at home here
Well I Kindly need to know what do you think about
my situation thabks a lot in advance
I had an heart attack back in july 2020 solved in time (god blessed me) with one stent so i started ti be followed by a Doctor with a specific heart terapy, Last control ok march 2021 confirmed all is ok now! My heart is doing well
On may 2021 after going to the bathroom many many time i had a suspect Of diabet and After a check with stripes at the pharmacy i found my blood sugar level at 411!!
So I went to the hospital and starting from the day after I have been supported by a diabetist doctor
Immediately I changed my food habits (very low carb and a lot of vegetables with light sports, very long walking) and I started insuline for a month with great results, my BS level starts going down till very good values (average during the days from 120 to 140 measured with the harm Abbott sensor)
At this stage the doctor said me that I can stop the insuline and continue only with metformin 1000, 500 morning and 500 in the evening before going bed)
During the last control on June he said me to continue with the metformin but adding a new medicine called OZEMPIC i don’t know if it is known outside the Italy but let me say that after a week taking it I started to go hypo and I had some nausea so I stopped it
Now I’m only taking metformin 1000 total in the day and my BS level average during July is 113 with 91 stripes used till today
113 value as average should correspond to A1c of 5.3/5.4 %
So now my question is: is the situation under control basing on your experience or do I have do something else because this is not a good value ?
If useful, usually I start the day with values from 95 to 120, before the lunch I’m about
90-100 and after lunch between 130 and 150
During the afternoon I can have also 70-85 range this before the dinner (sometimes
I feel very tired) and after the dinner values are between 120 and150 very similar to lunch.
Sorry if I wrote a lot but I tried to give the much information I have
Thanks a lot to give me your inputs, thoughts and suggestions!!
I think we are a family here!!
