Is it type two or type one diabetes?
I have monitored my son's eating and even had home cooked lunches together for a couple of months but his blood sugar numbers are over 200 in the morning, despite taking Metformin. After reading about type one diabetes, I wonder if he was misdiagnosed, as he has been working on this for a number of years and is not getting any better. He is 63 now and says he gets the shakes if he eats less, which confuses me. I suspect he needs to be on insulin and he needs to talk to his doctor again, as he is a former paramedic and knows the seriousness of his condition. He went through surgery and treatment for prostate cancer and is now cancer free at this time. He is very experienced at his treatment and knows it is not working well. I urged him to get re-evaluated and see an endocrinologist as soon as possible. Today I noticed the decline in his health and am quite concerned. Dorisena
