More than 6 yrs back at 160-240 level my doctor recommended Amaryl 1mg in morning and MopadeHS850 (Memorfin 850+Pioz15) at night which brought down my sugar level to120-140 level. Over the period sugar level started fluctuating and several times I felt hypoglycimia during day or night and sugar level fluctated from 70 to 352 and even after very hectic lifestyle and exercises it was not controlled. Recently I changed my Dr, he recommended Amaryl 1mg before b/f and 500mg metmorfin and Volibo 2mg after b/f, volibo 2mg after lunch, metmorfin1000 and Volibo 2mg after dinner. Now my sugar level is around 115-116, even after taking liberty of eating water melon and mango, a very good control. I have also left hectic exercises.
Hello. Take medications as your doctor says. Is this an endocrinologist? You have periodic A1c testing? Your control right now is excellent. Under 120 is considered perfect by my doc. People without diabetes range to this or to even 140. It is the big swings they worry about. Obesity they worry about. Excellent control. Since it is working, why change it or even worry about it? You are doing all you should. Exercise does not have to be frantic. Walking is important. Easier on the body. The idea is to not stress out.
By the way, 70 is not hypoglycemic unless you are having symptoms. Under 70 is when you grab the orange juice or dextrose pills. I find watermelon actually controls my blood sugars because of the combination of fruit sugars and fiber. The fiber is the essential part. I eat a couple cups per day when it is good and my blood sugars are excellent. I have found that there is a Natural Simply Orange juice with no added sugars and plenty of pulp which also allows me to have some real fruit and more than a swallow. Mango orange is very good. I never use artificial sugars. They give me a headache.
Diabetes is a real change. Watching diet and getting out and moving do a lot to maintain levels. Good for you. Enjoy the summer. Karen
