What's your A1C, do you know that by any chance?

Also, do you recall what your sugar was last night?

Took blood last night for a1c
Last night was 260. This morning added jinuvia
Health Professional: Dr. Mo, Doctor (MD) replied 7 months ago

And your metformin dose was 500mg or 1,000mg?

Health Professional: Dr. Mo, Doctor (MD) replied 7 months ago

The numbers you haven't aren't dangerous. 348 is a bit high but I wouldn't be worried.

The Januvia should bring it down over the next 3-4 hours.

I would recommend just eating light for now and checking again 2 hours after lunch.

1000 in mornig and again at night

The junivia takes a while to work in the system?
Health Professional: Dr. Mo, Doctor (MD) replied 7 months ago

The sugar was 260 last night so for it to be a little above 300 isn't too uncommon.

It could be that you had some delayed digestion from a meal.

On rare occasions, adding a new medication such as januvia can temporarily raise your sugars but they will soon return to normal after you have gotten acclimated to the new medication.

It should start working within a few hours but for some people it can take up to 10 days to really kick in.

I shouldn’t panic as these numbers seem crazy high
Health Professional: Dr. Mo, Doctor (MD) replied 7 months ago

Not at all!

Please don't panic, these aren't scary high numbers at all.

Please check again later today and you'll see they'll come down.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
