Hello everyone, I'm looking for some advice. I have been a type two diabetic for 20+ years and for 10 years I controlled it with meds and diet then my readings started to drift higher and I was put on to insulin twice a day. This brought my readings back down to around the 7-8 mark in the mornings before eating. Two years ago the Dr discovered I had an under active thyroid and they put me on Thyroxin for this and immediately my blood glucose levels started to climb. where I was taking 22 units of insulin twice per day, I went up to 48 units twice a day and even then I could only reduce my readings to 9-10 most days. About 3 months ago the Dr said I probably need more thyroxine and increased the dose, again my readings went up and I am now taking 50 units of insulin twice a day and still struggling to get readings below 10. I walk about 4 miles every day with my dog, I try and eat a pretty healthy low carb diet but I really don't know what to do. Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
