When I got my first blood test done (on an empty stomach) the first blood test was 6 and then I had to drink the lucazade and wait 2 hours for next blood test which was 11 and was told to control it by diet as I did not need medication? Check if you need to take medication, My partner takes 2 metformin a day for type 2 and he has no side affects?

anything over 11.1 is diabetic. So if your prescribed to take metformin i would. my dad has to take metformin as well, and its one of the best drugs out there, you could try to control your diabetes with diet and exercise but its not the most affective treatment. i think you should count your self lucky hat you don't have to inject, and start taking those pills!!!

Yes you should be concerned as that is quite high. There are several diabetes drugs besides Metformin. Exercise and diet are critical to getting your blood sugar under control, but in some cases they are not enough and medication is advisable. Your case may be one of those. Taking tablets would be preferable for most people to becoming more diabetic, possibly having to take insulin injections to stay alive.

WOW, you have joined the club. DIABETES !!

Metformin is the best drug you can get. Also get use to a lot of things you don't like to do. How about Insulin shots? Would you prefer them.Believe me, there's a lot of thing you won't like with this terrible disease.
And all the newer drugs for type 2 are dangerous. Januvia and Onglyza, these are DPP4 agents that cause cancer.

But here's what you must do fo life.And I guarantee they will work for you . You get a head start.

There are 4 key steps to controlling glucose levels.
Here are the 4 keys:
1) Knowledge- http://www.phlaunt.com/diabetes/index.ph… This is a great site for info
2) Meds. Metformin to start. Never , ever take Actos or Avandia. They may kill you. Bone fractures, heart problems and what diabetics really don't need is that they change Bone Stem Cells to Fat Cells.
3)diet- A low carb diet is in order. I can't count carbs so I use Mendosa's Glycemic Index Diet. Great for the whole family. http://www.mendosa.com/gilists.htm
4) EXERCISE- Walking is fine but Nordic Walking is Great. Exercise also lowers Glucose levels , lowers Cholesterol and lowers Blood Pressure. Google it.

Remember these are a must do.

Take care , good luck and Welcome


Do you have any idea how happy I would be to only have to take Metformin?! I am a type 1 diabetic so I have to take 6-8 shots a day! I have bruises at all of my injection sites. And if I miss a shot my blood will spike up to 400! 207 is pretty high though and your endocrinologist or nurse should take action to help you. First things first, if you don't like Metformin speak to them about other medicines like Glipizide. Try to get on a very good diet plan. If you want, your endocrinologist should be able to refer you to a nutritionist who can help you with this. Also, exercise is critical! It will help keep you healthy and lower your numbers!
