I hadn't been checking my blood sugar levels because my insurance comp. stopped covering my strips. Now I am back to checking and they are really high. I just went through a move and the loss of my older brother. I know stress can raise blood sugar, but but because of the move I can't get into a doc until next month. I am taking all my meds and trying to pay more attention to diet and try to exercise or else I can't get the levels down under 200. Should I get into the doc by calling for a same day appointment or just keep doing what I am doing, hoping this will start to make a long term differnce? I know I should have been doing these things all along, but my brother's death really brought it to the forefront, he was also diabetic, but died of a heart attack. I take Metformin (1000mg 2x daily) and Avandia for diabetes.
