Hello to all~

I was diagnosed with type 2 in 2000 at A1C @ 12.2 & BS @ 588! Was put on Glyburide 10 mg & glycaphage 500 2 a day. Went to one on one education 24 hrs. Have life change & eatting same since w/ food pyramid & healthy eatting. Well 8 yrs ago went into remission & off all meds totally controled never a sign of it at all. over yrs lost 108 pds too. Then 6 mo ago blood work still normal then 2 wks ago finally got health insurance to go I thought to a better docs. Blood work showed Out of control A1C @ 13.5!!! OMG & started poking right away BS @ 495 down thru 300's. Then just recent some high 200 then 300 same days. The doc put me on Glyipizide ER 5 mg then Endo doc on Novo log Flex pen 15 units breakfast & dinner. Its been on 2nd week of this with no real change. Did pancreas blood work & is abnormal. 4.7 H. My fingers are now numb & tingly, legs are so sore like Ive walked 10 miles a day! I can barely walk. I called docs office to tell them my BS is not going down. Nurse said will tell doc but would sug to continue til I see him in 2 wks! Called back & she told me he said just dble insulin 2 30 units am & 30 units pm. My gut is not feeling right. Im not feeling right. My liver func Sgot got are in high 200 again as I have liver autoimune disease anyway and also my thyroid is spikes. Been on sythroid since 2003. Along with other things are high. I told nurse that I found out that if my BS stayed @ 180 or above for more than 3 days in a row to call doc or go to ER. Any thoughts from anyone?
