Hi everyone. This forum kept coming up on my google searches so figured it must be a good place for info, I just wanted to see what people would say about my situation. I will try and keep it brief. In 2016 my blood sugar number was up (sadly I dont have the number) needless to say it was a wake up call. I lost about 20 pounds (lifestyle changes) and when I went back for retesting my sugars were normal range. Lots of bad things happened and the weight came back mostly over 2017. I switched family docs as mine retired and was sent for lab work. My glucose results came back in at 7.8. The dr diagnosed me as diabetic (type 2) and as such prescribed Metformin which I just started taking yesterday (1/day). I started changing my eating habits/hitting the gym on Monday. I also started taking my readings yesterday obviously the sample size is very small: 2018-02-15 Fasting 6.0 2018-02-16 Fasting 4.7 Is it normal to see lower results this quick? I know I have to do pre/post meal readings as well. The plan right now is to make changes/test once per day/up the metformin to 2/day in 8 more days and then go back for testing in 3 months. Depending on the number we go from there? Thoughts?
