    I have just started seeing a diabetes specialist. He added Invokana to my list which is Glipizide extended release, 2 metformin a day and Januvia . It just started the new medicine on Monday. I was really excited this morning when I woke up and check my morning sugar. It was 177, mine is never under 200. I drank a glass of water and started getting ready for work. Checked it again before I left the house and it was 235. All I had was a glass of water. I don't' understand any suggestions?

    Hi Lissa. Sorry, I missed your post. Sometimes when you don't eat, your liver provides your body with energy and releases stored glucose. I would try a small carb snack with some fat or protein (a cracker or two with peanutbutter or cheese?) might help. You don't always need to eat a lot to short circuit this response.
