What is the normal rate for Blood Sugar to Drop after Meds?

What is the normal rate for Blood Sugar to Drop after Meds?

My question is this I take 3 anti diabetic drugs, two oral: Metformin and Glipized and one injection , Soliqua.
I have recently changed back to Glipized from Repaglinide(Prandin). I couldn't tolerate Repaglinide, I was sick as a dog while taking it and in combination with the other drugs always lowered sugars way too much. I was happy to go back on Glipized, I have some minor side effects, but it beats being sick all day every day.

The problem is I had… read more

How do I make it through?

How do I make it through?

I was diagnosed as diabetic when I was 28. I was an athlete my whole life, always ate healthy, had a hard time losing weight since forever. To find out I did everything I was supposed to and still was diagnosed destroyed me. I’m adopted and it turns out it runs on both side of my bio family. My birth father was 18 when he was first diagnosed. I was doing really well and got my glucose down to an average of 150. This past 1.5 weeks it has been averaging about 250. I have been sick and… read more

Has anyone tried inositol?

Has anyone tried inositol?

Since my doctor says I don’t need medication, I was thinking I might try this. There is a brand called glucosmart, and many others. Has anyone had good results with this? I read that some people with PCOS are taking it instead of metformin, and with similar results. There was a study where type 2 diabetics added it to their oral medicine regimen and it lowered their A1C.

Worried about low blood sugar levels.

Worried about low blood sugar levels.

I don't want to sound too ignorant, asking so many questions. It's just that I watched my dad go downhill from complications due to Diabetes and eventually pass away after a sad struggle. I was much younger and I wish I would have taken the time to learn more about the disease so I could have helped him live a healthier lifestyle. .
I'm pretty committed to living the healthiest I can with this disease so I admit I get a little paranoid from time to time when I feel bad or get… read more

prednisone use

prednisone use

Recently prescribed prednisone and moved into high stress situation with disabled parent. After many years of decent control, now find blood glucose uncontrollable. Walking, other excersizes seem to have little effect. Late evening, blood glucose may be well over 300 I stopped the prednisone, and find blood glucose stays high. Any ideas about managing this, getting it down closer to a manageable level? Fasting not helping much either, and morning test still about 160.
