    How long did it take you to get your blood sugar down to a normal range?

    I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about 3 weeks ago with an A1c of 11. Since then, I have been counting my carbohydrates with a daily target of about 45 a meal. I have also been taking 500mg of Metformin twice a day. I test myself first thing in the morning and 2 hours after dinner each night. My numbers are slowly coming down, but so slowly! My morning readings were around 230-250 right after the diagnosis. This morning, my reading was 195. It seems to be going down, but at the same time I am worried that this is not happening fast enough. Tell me about your journey…how long did it take you to bring your numbers down?

    A little about me: I've been type 1 for 42 years. The last 5 years I've been having problems. Age (over 65), lack of movement & just plain over eating junk has been my problem. At 55 I had my own Harley! So, today I have hip, knee & lower back pain, always. My endocrinologist is bearing with me. A1C is 9. As told, I try to walk but it creates the pain to start. I have equilibrium problems with walking, using a cane to steady myself. Even my housework suffers. I used to clean my apartment in 1 day, now it takes that long just to clean the bathroom, hahaha. I've had PT. I know what to do but, as some have mentioned, the initiative is't there. I live alone, got rid of my 17 year old car because of work needed. My son does help me a lot, but he's not here always because of work. I also have diabetic unawareness and he has come in to find me passed out and called 911. Many of my problems are now stemming from no money, only social security. I have some help with prescriptions and gas & electric and charity care at the local hospital. Diabetes is hard to manage with stress and inactivity. I stopped working my PT job in 2013 for health reasons. I take 2 different types of insulin. I need to take small amounts every time I eat something/anything, such as a snack, but of course more with a meal. I take a different insulin for overnight. When asked how I'm doing, what else can you say but good, thanks. This is my first time telling this in this type of forum. No need to reply but thanks for listening.
