Feb 11 - Daily Journal

Wt: 237.2

Points: 16

Today was a good day. I was busy at work (my temp gig) and the day flew by. I'm still worried about my blood sugar - especially my fasting blood sugar - I can't seem to get it in the right range, no matter what I do. The slightest amount of carbs (meaning bread, pasta, rice, sugar) seems to send it up over 10 even if the carbs are eaten with protein. I think the medication I am taking (Glumetza) isn't as effective as Metformin that I used to take. The problem with Metformin is that it upsets my stomach so much and the Glumetza is an extended release version that is so much easier on my stomach, but doesn't seem to manage my blood sugar as well..I really don't want to go back to Metformin, but if I can't get it under control by diet then I don't think I'll have much choice. I see my endo on May 27th, so until then I'll just keep working on it.
