Type II diabetic having issues with controlling my BS readings. I take Metformin & Glipizide daily and also workout 4/5 times a week. Recently my BS have been high and I just read an article that recent studies indicate Metformin & exercise can be counter active and BS can go high if done together. I will be 72 on Monday and been diabetic for 8 years. 10 years ago, I was diagnosed with high cholesterol and was put on statins, which I have been reading can cause type II diabetes, is this correct? Just to let you know, I am the only person in my family that has ever had diabetes and I just wonder if anyone else is going through the same issues I am. Very frustrating!
