    Gender:
    Female
    Birthday:
    February 22
    Type of diabetes:
    Type 2
    Treatment type:
    Tablets (oral)
    Medication:
    Metformin 1000 mg
    Linagliptin 2.5mg
    Canagliflozin 300mg
    Ozempic 0.5mg (injection)
    Exercise:
    Walking 60+ minutes
    I was diagnosed with t2 in 2011 and lived in denial for a long time. I was badly overwhelmed with it all and I was over weight I decided to change my lifestyle and lost 3 1/2 stone by way of a better diet and exercise.
    I fell off the diabetic wagon and felt helpless again. Deciding last year to get back to better I started my healthy regimen again.


    I try to keep my carbs at under 160mg a day
    I do 60+ minutes of exercise at least 5 times per week

    my daily blood sugar tests are not shifting
    First thing in the morning I get ratings between 7.7 to 9.1 mmol
    Before lunch 6.5 to 8.5 mmol
    Before bed 7.7 to 10.4 mmol

    yesterday my carbs where 154.4mg I took my blood at 10pm after fasting from 6.30pm the reading was 8.8mmol
    This morning expecting a low reading my test was 9.1 mmol which I was really disappointed at.

    I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong and with all the hard work I put in it leaves me very disappointed and feeling hopeless I want to learn what I’m doing wrong and get a better insight into managing my diabetes
