You need to speak to your doctor regarding your meds, we aren't medically qualified to advise you. Also you should never put your personal contact details on an open forum as you could end up getting lots of spam emails or worse! lowering your carbs will help. cheeck xperthealth.org.uk and diabetes.org.uk for education on diabetes.

Are you a type 1 or Type 2 diabetic ? The advice will almost certainly be different depending on type.
