I have an upcoming appointment with a dietitian. I was recently diagnosed with diabetes type 2. even though I'm taking metformin, my numbers are high in the morning. 177.. should I cut carbs out at dinner?

      Also if you are watching your carbs at meals and it still happens. Look up Dawn phenomenon with blood sugar.

      When I saw my dietitian it was so helpful! He taught me to count the carbs in my meal at a glance, so easy and actually something that can be done! I hope the appointment goes well for you!

      You should be aiming for a certain amount of carbs each meal. Your dietician will figure that out. I have to count my carbs and give myself insulin for the food and correction. I also take a long acting insulin and victoza at night. I have an app to track my diabetes. I think its called Sugr. Let me know if ya need to talk or advice. Had it since 2010.
