Once I hit menopause my b.s. have gone up having hard time controlling them I'm taking metfotmin which is a real problem, it goes right through me. I also take rapid insulin and long acting. Tried to decrease metformin but had to go back to higher doses. Just can't figure it out. Thanks for listening.

Sunshine I have Type 2 diabetes I take 10 units of Lantus as needed. But in 2013 I was extremely obese, and was taking 10 units of Byetta, 12 units Humalog before meals and a sliding scale between meal, and 50 units of Lantus. My liver enzymes were over 1000 and my bs uncontrolled. On July 29,13 I had Vertical Gastric Sleeve surgery. I lost down to 177 lbs and the only thing I take for bs is 10 until Lantus, my Ac1 was a 8 now it's a 5. I have regained some of my weight because I stopped drinking water every 10 min and have been eating some things I shouldn't been eating, I have also stopped exercising like I should. Tomorrow is a new day I'm back on the wagon. Everyone please keep me in your pra4.
