My morning number is always above 120and I take Metfromin ,1000mg at night

I am also doing intermittent fasting

  1. Thanks for sharing. How long have you been doing Intermittent fasting? How long is your eating window? I'd encourage you to speak with your doctor about any new, changing or concerning symptoms as well as any questions regarding medications. In addition to speaking with your doctor, this article may be helpful to you: Also, keeping a brief food journal and blood glucose log may be helpful when speaking with your doctor and/or Dietitian.

    1. Hi Kelly, what I have found out is that Drs only like to see the A1c number to treat you. I just had a conversation with my HPC explaining my concern about high sugar level readings (over 140 fasting, over 225 one or two hours after a meal. He said everything is fine since my last A1c was 7.0 and I am diabetic. I am concerned.

    2. Thanks for chiming in. You're right, it's important to ask patients about what numbers they are seeing! The A1c is limited as it's an average, so someone could be having low lows and high highs but their A1c looks "good". It's important to know the whole picture. Do you keep a food journal at all? Sometimes that can be helpful in identifying foods that raise your blood sugar more than others. Also, perhaps consider seeing a Registered Dietitian for individualized help meal planning and glucose control. Wishing you the best, Kelly, Community Moderator

  2. Hi Kelly, thanks for the advise. I have discussed this with my PD, my Endocrinologist, my dietician and it seems that I get the same response. They are satisfied with me keeping my a1C under 7. No real advise from them.
