So, I’m super overweight, but my blood sugars have always been normal and I have a pretty healthy diet. But since being on perphenazine I’ve noticed my blood sugars are occasionally higher than expected when I randomly check them.
This morning I checked my fasting blood sugar because I’d been worried about it and just wanted some reassurance, but it was 117! I emailed my doctor to ask for official blood work and to check A1C, but it’s Sunday and she has Mondays off.
So, for those of you that have developed type 2 diabetes, or are at risk and have already talked to your doctor, what can I do?
I’m already working on losing weight, and have lost 25+ lbs since May. But I’ve got a long way to go still. I’ve been eating only whole foods, and plan to continue with that. I can’t exercise currently, but plan to talk to my doctor about changing my heart meds so maybe I can?
I don’t know. I’m lost and kind iof freaking out. Any advice?
