colesmom63 posted:
Hi all:
This last Wed my Endo added Victoza to my regiment. So now I inject Victoza once a day and take 500mg of Metformin twice a day. I tested this am without having eaten and I came out at 144 so I had some crackers and some water. This evening I forgot to test before I ate (wasn't thinking) but I tested 2 hours after I ate and tested at 194, I then waiting 20-30 and tested again and tested at 150. I did test before I ate lunch and it was 99 and after lunch it was 109 (which was good). What the heck am I doing wrong? I am watching my carbs but am having trouble limiting them. Tonight I had 1 slice of Rye toast with 1 slice of swiss cheese. Any suggestions from the gallery on how you guys learned to limit carbs? Any help is appreciated. Thank you, Sheri
