Hi everyone, So I'm feeling a bit at my wits end with my blood sugars lately, despite having my hba1c being 47, two less than last time. I'm not satisfied... I've just phoned the DSN to try and voice my concerns and I get told I'm doing fine and there are no concerns. The consultant says the same. I have the most stubborn morning spikes that seem to take until early afternoon to go away. Last night I went to bed on 6.4 at 23.27 and woke up on 8.6... I then had my poached eggs and 500mg metformin slow release and I didn't get down to 5.8 until 13.35... The night before I went to bed on 5.8 at 23.43, by 05.54 I was on 7.2 and I woke up on 7.8 at 10.10, which continued to rise to 8.0 by 11.20, I had cheese and ham for breakfast and my 500mg metformin slow release, by 13.38 I was on 6.2 and didn't drop into 5.3 until 16.09. The night before I went to bed on 5.3 and woke on 8.3. The night before I went to bed on 5.8 and woke up on 8.2. Etc etc... I'm able to watch my spikes and levels due to using my libre, I use this due to severe blood and needle phobia and I couldn't be without it. which I know at times does run slightly higher with this sensor- the other day sugars were 7.3 and dreaded fingerprick was 6.4. I also checked my ketones whilst I was at it which were 0.2. But even so, I'm really getting very disheartened with my fbgs. I recently had a panel of bloods done and got these results: They were drawn fasting at 10.20am and are as follows: Hba1c- 42 Glucose- 8.8 Insulin- 29 C-peptide- 846 Antibodies- negative I phoned my consultant to retrieve the units of the latter 3 numbers to which she said I wouldn't understand them! She just said it's clearly evident that I produce my own insulin but that I definitely have insulin resistance. I am currently taking 500mg sustained release metformin with breakfast and tea and I also take 200mg sertraline in the morning but I doubt that has an effect (to my knowledge?) My diet consists of meats, cheeses, fish, veggies, eggs, salad, sometimes I steal the odd new potato or something off my partners plate at dinner time or share a chocolate bar or have the burger out of the bread from McDonald's, but generally very low carb. Drinks I usually have water, the odd decaf coffee with sweetener and whole milk and my weakness... Coke zero. Please help or advise me, I feel asthough I'm a bit alone in my concerns.
