Do you watch your diet? I’m only taking Glipizide. No insulin. My A1C came down after getting off Zyprexa. I’m just watching sugar and high glycemic index foods such as white rice.

I’ve heard that’s what they do with prediabetes. My sister was concerned she was going to become prediabetic, but I don’t think she went on Metformin.

I developped high cholesterol from Zyprexa then they stopped the Zyprexa as it was also not working for my psychosis. I was half psychotic on it. I think 15-20mg.

My A1C is about 7.8, It was at 7.9. I’m unable to change my diet, not just because of motivation but of finance too. And I can’t eat less or not drink anything without sugar. If I’m lucky I will be dead in couple of years, if not my legs probably get amputated because of my smoking.
