|Every day. Twice a day. Sometimes more if needed.|
|Managing my meds. Any wonder why people get confused, miss doses or accidentally overdose? And the purple pill keeper--that is just the weekly, MORNING meds. I have meds I take at night also.|
Finally I have had enough. I want off this ride, it sucks. In November, I had a crisis. My meds quit working. yep. Just stopped. I was faithfully (ok- 95% of the time because nobody is perfect) taking my meds, I had begun losing weight, eating healthier and WHAMO-BLAMO! my meds quit working and my glucose levels shot up to the high 400's. Almost 4-5 times the normal range. That is bad. REALLY BAD!
Since then my meds have been changed/ adjusted 3 times. My blood sugar has decreased. Most mornings I am between 120-140 and my postprandial is 180-220. But I just can't seem to return to the normal range. I have been very compliant with my meds, because I had the crap scared outta me! I have lost 40 pounds (not an easy feat at all) and I have made even better food choices.
