Diabetes struggle

I've been struggling with my diabetes since (according to my meter) November last year. Blood glucose number up in the teens to low twenties mmol. I was told by my gp not to take my readings to put my meter in the cupboard and forget it. This is why my bg readings got out of control. I been put on a new med called something like Forxgia, it lowered my bg considerably, I have also lost 1lb since I started it. It takes the glucose out of your system, dumps it in your wee. You have to make sure you drink loads of water or it doesn't work. This med is my last chance at controlling my diabetes before going onto insulin.

I dont mind the needle it all the kerfuffle that being on insulin brings, and with fibro fog, it might prove difficult.

I hope the new med works for you. I am diabetic also. So I understand where you are coming from. It runs in my family. Some are on needle some take medicine like I do. When we get together we all have same diet! Lol sorry just a little family joke. I hope yours is under control its hard to find something that works for you.
