My situation is this. In 2014 I had my A1C done and it was 5.9. prediabetic .
As all my finals were good and my BMI good and as I play tennis almost every my primary care Dr said continue with what you are doing and we will watch and wait. Until March 2018 my A1C was when tested about every 4 months 5.9-6.0.
Over Christmas 2018 I seamed to have cold feet. Tingling.
At endof January had my A1C tested. The Dr before the results put my cold feet down to wear warmer socks. The result was however 6.9.
He put me on 2- 500 mg metformin a day and I decided to go to a nueologist. He confirmed I had nueopothy in the feet and put me on 6- gabapentin a day.
After 3 months my A1C went down to 6.2 and glucose levels 133.
I test my blood sugar every morning, fasting and my target range is 100- 120. It has just been in range but now moving up to closer to 130 in the last week.
Have started taking cinnamon capsule twice a day . This is my 5th day. No effect yet.
Could not see a endocrinologist as my A1C below 7 and k am on Medicare. Sucks.
I watch my diet and exercise. My primary care does not believe my nueopothy is caused by diabetes. Just getting old and these things happen. I am 78.
Treating my nueopothy is another issue.
If I cannot get my blood glucose in range I may increase my metformin to a higher dose. Any comments would be appreciated.
