Re: question about meds for type 2
geniemac and sunshine12, my brother is 65 and was diagnosed just a couple years ago. He had gained quite a bit of weight at that time. He admitted that he was not checking his sugars 'like he should'. I have been questioning him a lot lately and he told me the docs office could not get his sugar levels below 400. He spent quit a bit of time there as they checked some things out. They decided his meter was broken and gave him a new one. He has lost quite a bit of weight and my daughter and her husband were there today to help him with something and they think he has lost more weight. He fell again today while they were there, but was able to get himself up. He has other health issues, but it seems this type 2 and his blood sugar is the one causing so much trouble. I guess I am going to have to spend a day with him and give him a good talking to and see what is going on....he is my older brother, that will go over well. I agree, he needs to see a good endocrinologist.
Thank you both for the help.
