Thank you so much for responding. I just saw your response today. I have had Type 2 for about 9 years and always had it under control. I don't know what has happened.
Breakfast has usually been 1/4 cup of cereal and 1% milk, small piece of fruit, teaspoon of nuts/Lunch - 1 boiled egg, 1 tablespoon cottage cheese, 3/4 cup spinach, small piece of fruit/1/2 cup, water to drink. Dinner usually a few pieces of grilled or baked meat, 1/2 cup of yellow and a green veg and a small piece of fruit.
No soft drinks but a diet one every now and then. I eat oatmeal 1/4 cup sometimes - no sugar and 1% milk.
I previously had fasting sugars of around 90 and before lunch and dinner blood sugars were around 84. I had a really stressful job begining last January -August and really got out of control.
I have been feeling bad the last 1.5 weeks and just realized today that it was when I stated taking the new med Actoplus MET XR 15-1.
I'm thinking of going back on the Janumet until my next appt in a couple of weeks and continue watching what I eat and exercising.View Thread
