    I have had the same problems for almost 2 years...some days bad and some good....I am working with my doctor to try and reduce my morning high blood glucose levels of 11.0 to 13.5....I stopped metformin which made things a bit better and now on glyburide....I also have to watch what I eat now as it gets worse if I eat dairy or fatty foods and I used to be able to eat anything, the food thing is hard on the gut as when I eat something wrong it is a 3 day bad.... then work out what it was and try again....my doctor said it should get better when we find the right medication balance.
