I have been a Type 2 Diabetic for 30+ years; in addition to Metformin (2000 mg per day) and Gluburide (5 mg per day), I was placed on Lantus Glargine two and a half years ago. While it levelled off my sugars and brought my A1C from over 9.0 mmoL down to 7,3 mmoL (which I have maintained for over two years), I have not been able to lose weight. My last A1C three months ago was 7.7 and my doctor was quite upset with me. I had blood work done this week and don't get my results until Tuesday. I would like to start lowering my Lantus injections gradually with a view to going right off it, but know I will have a fight on my hands unless I do it on my own. I am currently trying an alternate way of dealing with diabetes that I hope will get me off meds all together. I would appreciate your advice. Thank you.
