My A1C has been running around 4.8 for my last three quarterly check-ups. I stopped my Actos as soon as I consistently got my Blood sugars under control with diet, because it was causing my numbers to fall to far, too fast.

If I didn't eat every 4 hours, I would get nauseous, dizzy, and break out in a sweat. Once, while waiting to meet dh for dinner, I passed out at the mall. Not fun. I am now on 500mg of Glucophage twice a day. I was thinking of speaking to my doctor about discontinuing that as well, and controlling entirely by diet.
