    7.6 this morning! not happy.
    7,0 last night.

    This is after cutting Metformin down to a single 500mg per day for three days now. Nausea is gone but numbers creeping up (at least fasting. Rest don’t look bad). Doctor thinks trying a Gliptin for a few weeks is good but i am hesitant. Can not make up mind. Maybe I will seek a second opinion from a endocrinologist..

    T2 diagnosed about September last year. Diet moved from carb heavy to moderate carbs (complex) and quite regular at gym till January. In February fractured foot and been very inactive waiting for recovery. Overall since diagnosis numbers have come down but not yet at ideal stage. Still trial and error on medication as Forxiga initially helped drop numbers and weight but started having bad side effects. Right now only on Metformin 500mg... Unable to decide if i add Gliptin for a few weeks and see progress or just wait it out till my leg is out of cast and i can start getting more physical which is probably 3-4 weeks still

    FGB today is lower than the 7.X i have been recording recently. So not too bad. I am seeing doctor today for some follow up checks.
