    Has anyone any thoughts or views on going onto either of these drugs. Not having any faith in gps practice. I've high insulin resistance. I fast for about 12 hours. I don't lose weight etc when carbs are around 100. Only seems to work when carbs are around 20g My BG raises in the morning. Even on long term low carb I can get spikes of nearly 19 after a carb meal of about 10g carbs. Occasionally my BG gets down to 8.3 but more often over 12. Last HBA1C was 73.
    I write a food diary but can find no correlation between foods and spikes.
    Currently I'm on alogliptin (one year) . I've never felt this worked. I currently get blurred vision after a meal or I fall asleep.
    I am struggling and any guidance would be appreciated. Thank you for reading.
