Hi All, this is my first post. I have tried metformin, including XR - extended release,but did not tolerate it. I was given glicazide 40 mg x 1 day and I have relatively well controlled. Furthermore, I do test my blood sugar and because I drive I always test before I drive. My blood sugars have been slowly increasing and the last 3 days my readings have been above my target of 5 - 7.9 and today’s reading was 11.7. Typically, if get a high reading then the next reading will be in my target or it will be borderline hypo. the last 3 days I have experienced, lethargy, tiredness, urinating large volume at night, flushed skin, and a bit of ‘brain fog.’ spoke to my GP who said my last Hb1ac was 47, my previous was 56, and my highest was 75. He did not think it was not worthwhile to change medications because of my last Hb1ac level and did not want to rely daily testing. My concern glicazide is not work and I am beginning to build up blood glucose. Previously when I hit 14 I was told not to worry and I have signs of diabetic retinopathy.
