Lab reports from my last follow-up visit for CUSHING's indicate that my blood sugar has continued to "creep up" since 08-25-06, when it reached the lowest point of 5.6 for A1c. Since then my 6 month maintenance visits show that I held around 5.9 to 6.0 for a couple of years, then I was back up to 6.3 with my last visit in September.

 

I was prescribed METFORMIN again, starting out with a whopping 2 pills a day, 1 AM and 1 PM. I quickly felt bad at this level, and within a few days, believe I was heading toward LACTIC ACIDOSIS, from the contraindications listed and a familiarity with the symptoms then experienced. I stopped the MET for a few days to let it clear my system, and then started back in more gradually, with 1/2 tablet in the evening, and have work up to 1 tablet in the evening and 1/2 in the morning. No further contraindications yet, but still closely monitoring my progress.

 

My morning blood sugar pricks do not seem to show any immediate progress, but then I haven't been eating right with the guys gone. Very much into "convenience food".
