i am 77 years old diabetic,Type 2 afflicted by the disease 36 years ago.My BS had been controlled until 6 months back .Due to my wife's major surgery I was forced to give up my regimen of exercise & diet control too. As a result A1c shot up to 8.5.Since last 2 months,I am strictly back to my previous routine i.e strict diet control & almost 2 hours of cardio & weight exercise. I am taking 3 type of pills but fasting BS is mostly hitting 170-180 mg/dl.
Primary Dr. is not in favor of insulin. How could I achieve levels with in normal range"
