My wife has been taking pills until two weeks ago when her doctor switched her to insulin twice a day. I am concerned because her morning blood sugar is still around 210 mg/dl [11.7 mmol/L] before eating and around 400 mg/dl [22.2 mmol/L] at night after eating. Should we wait longer to get the amount of insulin adjusted? Do you think that she needs to see a specialist?

I am now on Glucophage twice per day, and my glucose levels are still hovering around 200 mg/dl [11.1 mmol/L]. Why can I no longer control this by diet and exercise as I have for the last six years? Why isn’t the Glucophage bringing the levels down to a comfortable 110-120 mg/dl [6.1-6.7 mmol/L]?.

A good friend of mine, who has type 2 diabetes, has been in denial until recently. Within the last couple of months, she has tried hard to eat just the right amount of carbs, take her medication, and started swimming several days a week, but her blood sugar continues high, and we do not understand. What else we can do to get it in the normal range?

I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes 14 months ago. After recently changing medication, my blood glucose came down very rapidly so my medication has been stopped and my blood glucose is normal. Are we overlooking something? Or just looking a gift horse in the mouth?
