I would like to add some more details I was on 3 medications acorbose starlix generic version and tanzeum and or metformin. My work is very hectic and a1c was 11.43 a year ago and now brought to 7.1. But due to the fingers joint inflammation I couldn't bend my fingers. Last month I stopped all medicines and I tried kale shake daily with avocado apple celery carrots and mixed peanuts and avoided all my regular food I had been taking. My fingers dramatically healed in a months time. Now sugar level is uneven now. What are the options I have should I start the medicines?
