a1c was 6.2 without meds now its 10.2 with meds and its type two by the way and i just started taking insulin and metformin but i cant get my blood sugar below 200 and i am having chest pain and headaches, i quit drinking alcohol over a yr ago and crave more sugar now but am careful with it, does menopause make diabetes worse? Drs. dont tell you crap anymore, you have to look it up on the internet, which is also a big pain in the butt. I am so confused please help
