Thinkstock 11 Everyday Things That Spike Blood Sugar If you’re living with type 2 diabetes, your doctor has probably told you time and time again that maintaining control over your blood sugar is essential. “Controlling blood sugar is important for two main reasons,” says Lynn Grieger, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator in Prescott, Arizona. “On a day-to-day basis, people just feel better when their blood sugar stays in a healthy range. Over the long term, it’s the best thing you can do to prevent complications of diabetes from occurring.” Diabetes complications include nerve damage, kidney disease, skin conditions, eye damage, high blood pressure, stroke, and more, according to the American Diabetes Association (ADA).

    My treatment has consisted of 4 months of BC and Glucophage. It was promising when my last US revealed normal ovaries and my blood test was normal too. Last month I went off the pill but continued glucophage. My dr. was optomistic that I would ovulate. I didn't. I am crushed. What do I do now?

    metformin doesnt always make you ovulate. normal women, without PCOS, sometimes have anovulatory cycles. just give it some time, and let your body adjust to not being on the BC pills anymore. i know it's hard, but patience will get you through.
    if you are TTC there are other steps you can take other than just the Metformin. Metformin is basically just treating the insulin resistance, and lowering your androgen (male hormone) levels. this is really good for your heart, because women with PCOS have a higher risk of heart disease due to the excess of androgens.
    dont lose hope, i have faith that everything will be fine :)
