I was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes and put on Metformin on June 26th, 2019. I started some diabetes diet and followed it 100% for a few weeks and could not get my blood sugar to go below 140. Finally i began to panic and called my doctor, he told me to get used to it. He said I would be on metformin my whole life and eventually insulin. At that point i knew something wasn’t right and began to do a lot of research. Then I found a diabetes website http://www.wellhealthplans.com/diabetestreatmentvideo I read that article from end to end because everything the writer was saying made absolute sense. I started the diet that day and the next morning my blood sugar was down to 100 and now i have a fasting blood sugar between Mid 70’s and the 80’s. My doctor took me off the metformin after just three week of being on this lifestyle change. I have lost over 30 pounds and 6+ inches around my waist in a month. The truth is we can get off the drugs and help myself by trying natural methods
to use it yourself, then you don’t need it. Glucagon is supposed to be administrada by a third party. As long as you’re conscious, you should focus on esting glucose tabs or drinking sweet drinks. That’s what we must carry at all times.
I realize this. When I get lows they happen any time anywhere and they are critical. Therefore I cannot do anything on my own easy diabetic potluck recipes let alone think properly enough to eat or take a dex 4 tab. Hence the reason my doctor said “keep it on me at all times” also my pharmacist advised the same thing. But thank you for your advice.
I’ll listen to my doctor. Also I’ll educate couple a trusted friends and other family members on how to use it as well

I live in Canada I’d have to look into a therapy dog here. But that’s a good idea.
aww you’re so lucky to be Canadian! My mom is a first generation US citizen- my grandparents came to the US from Ontario and I still have family there! I really think a therapy dog would help! easy diabetic potluck recipes I’ll still look to see if I can find the online courses for you tho!

I have seen posts from people who feel that their life was saved by the use of Glucagon and I certainly can’t & won’t argue with that. That being said, I have had T1d for 34 years and have never filled an rx easy diabetic potluck recipes for Glucagon. For most of my diabetic life
, it was never even suggested to me. I guess about 10 years ago, my Endo wrote an rx for it, but it was over $100 even with my insurance and I had never needed it before, so I figured I didn’t need it then. I did, however, get Dexcom and hope that it will catch lows or highs before they become dangerous. I know they’re not 100% perfect, but nothing is.
My Glucagon that I got a few months after being diagnosed, was easy diabetic potluck recipes about $250 and not covered by insurance or Medicare. After I had it, the endo office said they could have given me a coupon> Too late! I’m checking with my cde and endo if I really need to pay out of pocket since I have a cgm and could easily call a nurse friend or 911 with an ambulance close by.
I live in Canada that’s why mine is fully covered by my disability most all my diabetic supplies and meds are.
also I’m told if this is to be used I’m to go to emergency after to be monitored as I get critical lows and I can drop good foods for diabetics with high blood pressure again fast. My lows hang with me for a few days and I need hospitalization for them.
I guess that’s an advantage of your health care system. .
others in the group from Canada have said that they pay OOP for a lot of their diabetes meds and supplies. They can’t afford the supplemental insurances.
