My doctor has subscribed Metforim for me however my blood sugar over the last 30 days has been no higher than 122. I have been following a diet plan...just recently diagnosed.
My main problem is not wanting to eat. That started some weeks ago.
I also took antibiotics which left me with bad yeast infection and now thrush from dentist appointment and their bacterial killing mouth wash.
Antibiotics where for possible bladder infection, but now they are thinking not...possible fallen bladder or IC.
Anyway the Metforim is making my side hurt (i had this before) which I have been complaining about forever and of course more nausea and now diarreha. My doc said if my blood sugars where high that would account for nausea...but they arent and I kept telling her that. I even brought my testing equipment to show her.
Just a couple of days. I wondered if I should even take it since I my blood sugar isn't high. She said that could cause nausea, but isn't high.
I have been anal about checking it and watching it closely since diagnosis about a month ago.
My A1C was 7.4 when diagnosed and I immediately changed my diet. I have lost 30 pounds already and initially I felt okay but now for the past two to three weeks I can't hardly make myself eat. That is something for this fat gal.View Thread
I am not eating white foods like rice, white bread, cereals thus far and etc.
I am averaging 65 carbs a day by adding dark red kidney beans. Eating only veggies like raw radishes, cabbage and some green beens.
I do wash veggies that are canned first.
I am so used to Atkins and counting every carb. They are saying not count veggies like broccoli, cabbage, radish, green beans etc. Of course kidney beans we do.
I read on other boards people saying that 45 to 60 is too many carbs. I definately don't eat that many at breakfast. I am averaging around 65 carbs or less a day and it is better. I follow low fat choices most of the time on everythings...fish, bison, shrimp, canadian bacon, turkey bacon and etc.
I need to lose a lot of weight so my worry is this many carbs will surely prevent that.
