    Hi everyone! I am not a new T2 but I could say I am new at taking the responsable approach. After taking 14-15 months off my medicines (I was only taking 500mg metformin twice a day then) a kidney stone passing revealed a 400 BG. I thought things were under control with natural herbal medicine, but I was wrong. Went to see my doctor (who I know before he became a doc) and he was VERY UPSET! To make it short (shorter ) with an A1C of 11, when my previous result 14 months before was 7.3, we had to get very serious. I started around 2 months ago with 1000mg Metformin twice a day and I saw some improvements but morning BG was around 200-215. I lost 10lbs with diet and exercise and still BG wouldn’t go below 150 in the mornings. I added 10, 12 and now 14 units of levemir once a day before going to sleep and now I went back to 200 BG in the morning. Am I doing something wrong? 16 months ago, before leaving a twice a day 500mg dosage of metformin I had my BG in the low 140’s in the morning. Can 1+ year of carelessness create such havoc? should I be concern and look for more aggressive treatment? or should I give my new responsible approach time to do it’s job? (almost 3 months since 1000mg metformin twice a day and only a month of 10-14 units levemir)
    I decided to signup to vocalize (in writing) my experience thanks to reading your posts in the forum. I thank you in advance for the courage each one of you had to share and not hide diabetes. It made me feel “normal” again

    Unfortunately things can turn bad pretty fast with diabetes. Once you get off the narrow path your diabetes can sort of suck you into a black hole. Your blood sugars get high, your pancreas can’t keep up, your blood sugar goes even higher, your body becomes insulin resistant as a last ditch effort to protect your cells against high blood sugars and the next thing you know you have an A1c like yours and things are really bad.
    But look up, you seem fortunate that have been able to get things back on track. Having uncontrolled diabetes doesn’t mean you will always have uncontrolled diabetes. You just need to take care of it. You have to get your head about the reality of diabetes and you just need to be constantly diligent.
    As to your regime, you may find that you have to adjust your Levemir in order to control your fasting and morning blood sugars. After having very high blood sugars you may have lost much of your beta cell function and having T2 you may find that you need much more than 10-14 units of Levemir to get things under control. I would just suggest you work closely with your doctor to find the proper dose. It may take weeks and even a couple of months to get things straight. You don’t want to rush it.

    Thanks for sharing your experience, hopefully your experience will help others.

    Hi, I agree with Brian. Yes going off the beaten path can cause some difficult issues. This is not to say your situation is automatically bad. I suggest you get back in touch with your doctor. There may be some immediate corrective action that can be done to get back on track, or you might find resumption of the typical method will be helpful in regaining control.
    It is true bad things can and do happen, but if they have time is not on your side. What is on your side is to visit your doctor and reassess.
    I wish you the very best in your journey. I went off the track for several years and was able to get back together. Yes, I had done damage, but I am grateful for the now time. I hope you will be grateful as well.
