Patients Diabetes (Type 2)
Topic of the discussion
Posted on 8/14/19 11:41 PM
I was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and through careful monitoring I was able to make successful changes to my diet. I am also taking Metformin. Now, with no changes in dosage and no changes in my diet, my blood glucose is spiking in the mornings, and while it comes down a bit it is staying high throughout the day. I have an appointment with my Dr. but In cannot get in for a few weeks and am wondering if anyone has had a similar experience or might have some advice for what I can do while waiting to see my physician.

Hi @Rickyd Is the spikes you are experiencing since taking Metforming? Were you getting these spikes before? Were you managing your diabetes previously with just food/diet/and exercise?

Yes, these spikes just started about a week ago and I am currently taking 500 milligrams of metformin 2x a day.

Hi Rickyd, I know what you are going through and can give you a link to have a look at with some vital new information. It worked wonders for a very good friend of mine with very quick results. It's a free video from a company called Halki Diabetes. Good luck. Here is the link http://bit.ly/2KTQN9N
