Hi there guys. I normally don't post here on the diabetes board, but I have some questions that I hope some of you can help me out with.
Diabetes runs in my family, on my Moms side mainly. Her father took insulin, and had to watch his diet, and the whole 9 yards. Anyway, my Mom is a sickly woman. The past year and a half or so, she has been in and out of the hospital, fighting to live...mostly contributed to her Chron's Disease. Anyway, her newest health concern seems to be diabetes. Her blood sugar readings have been anywhere from 150 to 200. She brought the concern up to her doctor, who did her fasting glucose levels. I guess that reading was 171.
Evidently, he put her on some pill...she says she doesn't know what it's called...I guess she didn't fill the prescription yet, and can't read his writing...I am going over there in a little while to look. Anyway, I guess she is sposta take this pill and keep tabs on her sugar levels. She said she isn't sposta get concerned unless her reading is above 400.
My questions are...
Has anyone heard of readings that high being OK?
Does anyone know what this pill could be?
If her readings are never over 200, and he says anything up to 400 is fine, why would he put her on yet, another pill?
I apologize for the lengthy post, and I appriciate all the help given to me. If I get the name of this pill today, I will post again.
