I just got a new Dr because my insurance changed, and I am concerned at all the meds she is throwing at me. A Birth control (i have pcos and was on a 4 week bleed), Metformin (which i am having the standard tummy problems with), and a bp med which i had to cut in half because of side efects and dizzyness, and a Vitamin D3 suplement that i just started today. My A1c is VERY high (11), and i understand the importance of bringing it down, but she also wants me to take a glimipuride. I have taken it before and it killed my libido, but she insists i take it. My metformin is er (Extended Release) and still not up to the full 2000mg she wants me to get to, and My fiance and i are hoping for a family very soon. I have read up on the other side efects and warnings of the Glimiperide and it clearly states to not take it if you plan on becoming pregnant. I feel like my Dr is not listening to me, Especially since she seem so focused on JUST my A1c and not anything to do with my wish to start a family or the original reason i went in. I also understand that it is dangerous to have my A1c so high during pregnancy, and the 1000mg of metformin is actually lowering my blood sugars already (from 200-180 fasting to 146 this morning) and i've only been on it for about 2.5 weeks. I am a little depressed because it seems like i am doing almost everything right, and my a1c is redonkulous, plus I hate the feeling all these meds are giving me. I would just find another Dr, but my insurance SUXXX and the next closest one is 30 minutes away (in good traffic) and i dont want to have to take a day off work because i have a dr apt. Thoughts? Advice? Help? I am feeling like i am losing an up hill battle so encouragement is also welcome.
