Concerns

Hello everyone, this is my first post so please bare with me. I was diagnosed Type 2 in August 2010. I have since been put on Metformin (1000 mg 2x Daily). Ever since being diagnosed my eating habits have changed (I saw a Diabetic nutritionist) and have been exercising daily. I have lost over 75lbs since being diagnosed. Well for the last 6 months or so my blood sugar has been out of control for me. Whenever I eat, no matter what it is, my BGL shoots up to anywhere between 180-280's. Then I experience a fast crash and no matter what I do I have to fall asleep. I also experience my feet going numb. My doctor doesn't seem to listen though because my fasting BGL and A1C come back great. My last blood test last month had my fasting at 83 and my A1C at 5.3%.

Can anyone explain this to me?

Also I was thinking of talking to my doctor about adding something like Victoza or Byetta to my medications/diet/exercise. Does anyone have any opinions about this?
