Hi all, this is my first visit to the forum and hoping someone will be able to help. I am no spring chicken, aged 63 and have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes for 15 years. At present I am unable to control my blood sugar levels even though I am taking injections 3 times a day together with metformin and Bydureon. Insulin doses at present Humalog 50, 78 units at breakfast, 78 units at lunch and 88 units at dinner. Also 2 grms Metformin. My levels have never been really stable since the beginning, however for the last year they average around 16 mmol. Both GP and consultant are aware, however, it appears we have now reached the shoulder shrugging stage. Dietitian has decided to put me on a low carb diet yet again, cant remember how many dietitians I have had over the last 15 years who have all tried that approach to no avail other to making me feel worse. I also take many other forms of medication for other ailments that have not cased any problems to the diabetes. Anyone out there with any suggestions, however, I am not ready for the wooden overcoat just yet, hopefully.
