I remember being diagnosed with type II diabetes about 6-7 years ago. I wasn't real upset, just said okay. Now it seems like I'm in denial... this many years later?? I think because I did everything I was told to do... followed the diet plan, exercised, lost weight, took meds (insulin for awhile but no more)... everything improved so much that I thought, "well, I'm cured". My A1c went from 12.9 to 6.0, my blood sugars were good. So in June, I quit the only diabetic med I was on - metformin 2000mg per day. Things were fine all through summer... well I never checked my blood sugar. I checked my fasting blood sugar one day and it was 185. So I started metformin again 1000mg per day. I now I've had high readings and low readings, lots of spikes and dips. I'm finally seeing the doc again, but I thought it would just go away. Apparently not. Does diabetes ever just go away?
