Fri, Feb 1 9:41pm · PreDiabetes recommended Daily Sugar and Carbohydrates intake in Diabetes/Endocrine System

I think you can ask every single member here who has diabetes, and they would all tell you that they have had days like that! You are not alone! I am Christian, I send all my prayers to Jesus; not just prayers, complaints, grumbling, even yelling at times. Tell it all to Him, He died for you, and has a very big back–He can handle it all!!!!!!!!!!! Mine have sounded like this at times–why did you give this to me, I don't want it, take this away from me!!!!! Even Jesus asked God to take away the suffering He was about to endure. That prayer from Jesus to His Father, always inspires me–if Jesus was allowed to feel that way—we should be able to too!!!!!!! God Bless, and hang in there—He always has time to listen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fri, Jan 25 11:16pm · Trouble with everyday realities of diabetes in Diabetes/Endocrine System

Perhaps if you only think of having to deal with this for today. If I give a thought to having to do this forever, I would be depressed too. It is easier for me if I only have to deal with this for one 24 hour period. Guard your thoughts, we can all slip into negative thoughts at one time or another, when you notice it–intentionally go the other way; and think of all the positives in your life. Everyone has something to be thankful for! Medically, I am a mess–type 2 for 6 years now, high blood pressure, anxiety attacks, etc. etc., but that doesn't stop me from being thankful for the life God gave me!!! Best of luck, my friend!!!!!

Mon, Jan 7 7:42pm · Have you experienced Any Side Effects from Metformin 500 mg 2XDay? in Diabetes/Endocrine System

Metformin did upset my stomach for about a month or 2 when I started on it. I am now on 850 mg twice a day, and it took another month or so to get used to that also–no other side effects for me.

It could be–we are all different and have different reactions. I usually don't get much of a warning before it happens to me; I read that it happens to people who have had a lot of lows, sometimes no warning at all. That is no fun, I can assure you! I hope you had a great Christmas, and have a very Happy New Year! Good Health to you my friend!

Wow! Consider yourself blessed, it is no fun waking up and wondering what happened to you–usually a big drop, or my sugar got too low. It is great that you haven't had that problem, God Bless You!

I was on insulin when I was first diagnosed, but I kept passing out–so the Dr. stopped the insulin. I was supposed to take 20 units the first day–and my Nurse Practitioner wife suggested we start with just 2 units, because she knew that I had unusual reactions to med's. I passed out with just 2 units of insulin. Now I am on 850mg Metformin twice a day, no insulin. I strongly suspect that I may have the Autoimmune Diabetes, I believe it is called. They also call it 1.5 Diabetes for a shorter name. I read about it on the Mayo Clinic Newsletter I get through my e-mail. The treatment is mostly the same, the only difference is that eventually you will need insulin to control it; and most people who have it are misdiagnosed as a type 2 diabetic at first. I take it one day at a time, with a whole lot of prayer mixed in and leave the rest to the Lord!!!!

No, I am a type 2 diabetic, for 6 years now. But my reactions are not typical; Dr.'s believe that most of it is caused by my anxiety attacks–which cause my sugar to spike, and then I when I do calm down–my sugar drops drastically.

I have anxiety attacks that play havoc with my sugars–huge rises and then big drops. I also have insomnia and when I miss hours of sleep, my sugars go crazy. I, too, have trouble while exercising–causing crashes; and the dozing out you are talking about happens to me also. I have had it for 6 years now, did you find any help or answers for your problems?
