Goodevening all.... I am new to this site and have a sorta uncomfortable question to ask. I have Type 2 Diabetes and take Metformin 1000 mg. 2x daily, Glimepriride 4mg once daily, plus 20 mg Lisinopril for high blood pressure. I have chronic constipation, followed by diahrea.

Should I be wearing an ID braclette for my Type 2 and should I have all meds on it
I have recently experienced higher fasting glucose levels over the course of about 6 weeks. Normally, I am at 80- 120 in the mornings, but lately have been about 140- 160.
