    @Serena51 why don't you start a thread of your own asking for help and giving information about what your eating and your exercise? You may get some helpful advice and suggestions. But don't give up hope.:)

    maybe ask the more experienced members in here for advice ... stay here dear... it is much more difficult when one also use insuline or insuline affecting medications.. a lot of us only use metformin or no medication, so please do not compare yourself to us, we have a much easier time doing lower numbers in my opinion , well maybe not easy but easier than when one having a hard time ajusting the right doses of medication, the timing of it and how often...
    so yes stay here and try to ask for advice in a tread of your own,,,

    @Serena51 if you start a thread on your own I can give you some help as been on insulin for most of my life and I know how you feel and how much you want to bring down your sugars but you will get there eventually trust in yourself and you will get there it's just going to take a little bit of time to get the right amount of insulin in you but once you do it will come down your sugars and you will be pleased and you will soon be able to feel better in yourself more

    Must have been. Thanks for keeping me right.
    I assumed heart related, well circulation is relative, I suppose. They tested a few times for that lately and luckily, all clear. Phew!
