I am diabetic, and am on glyburide 5mg/metformin 500mg combo. My sugars were stable, until I tested this afternoon. (I had stopped testing for reasons unknown for 3 months. Then I started testing again. I am going to keep testing from now on. But what's unnerved me is the 256 reading on my glucometer this afternoon. I really need the lapband surgery. I wish my doc would give that to me, but he wants me to lose the weight naturally. *sigh* I don't know what to do.... HELP!
