Hiya all,I asked the nurse today if I could increase my dose of metformin and gliclazide to six a day instead of 4.She said no,cos I am on the maximum dose at 4 of each a day already,any more and it could damage my liver and kidneys.She said to look into halving my intake of bread and potatoes and replacing them with alternatives.So I will do that.

After lunch today my reading is 289.So it has come down again from 360,but is still too high.I am having soup for dinner with a slice of bread.Let's see what the reading is later on tonight.

For the life of me I cannot understand how you can control this with diet alone. Metformin and glucatrol aren't working. I am shocked she did not put you on insulin. I wish you the best of luck though.

Guiness,I have explained I can't go onto insulin,I was on it before and it made my appetite ravenous and I gained 19 kilos,which is 42 pounds and I would have gained more if I hadn't stopped it.I also think it caused my womb cancer.It is possible just with diet and the medications that I am on,I have done it before.

Just worried about you. You should be no higher than 180 after you eat and waking up around 100.
