I went for my checkup today. While my weight (217 lbs) and my blood pressure (130/74) were good, my blood glucose A1C
was 9.7, which means my average glucose reading is 230-250. My doctor was very concerned (as was I!), and so we're trying a new medication alongside the metformin, and he's going to give it 3 to 6 months to see if it starts lowering my A1C. If not, then I may have to begin taking insulin.
