Hi, I’m new to this forum stuff (65 and not very computer literate), so please give me a break. I’m taking Metformin 2 x twice a day, Glicazide 1 x twice a day and Sitaglyptin 1 in morning along with a load of heart meds. I was thinking my sugars were coming under control as regularly showing 10 or below in the morning and around 7 or 8 in lunch and pre evening meal tests. 2 weeks ago my back went (old injury that reoccurs occasionally) but this one has been bad. I’m dosed up on pain killers and muscle relaxants, back brace and walking stick. My time had been spent between walking albeit slowly and very steadily and resting/sleeping but my blood sugars have rocketed. I’m now getting between 12 and more often 15-16 in the morning reducing only by a couple of points during the day. I did get an 8.8 the other lunchtime but just once. Told doctor on reviewing meds last week but he told me to talk to Diabetic Nurse. Tried to get an appointment but got to wait 3 weeks for a phone appointment. I have reduced my food intake to balance lack of exercise. Low Carbs etc. For example evening meal last night was 1 and 1/2 ham and chicken sandwiches on low GI bread and water. This mornings reading was 15.8 Any advice please?
