  1. I am having awful problems controlling my blood sugars. Ever since a blip when my sugars went into hypo ie (0.6). Ended up in hospital for a week where they starved me for a week, only drinking water. Gave Clexane (blood thinner) daily for a week, then informed me it was due to my Fibonyalgia!!!! However since then my blood sugars have been high then low. Example yesterday when I got up its was 26.6. Later in the afternoon it was 10.3. I am watching vigorously what I am eating. Doctor put me on extra tablet, which is sitagliptin. Metformin is the other tab. any ideas. X
