Ok, I'm a female, 56, about 45 lbs overweight. Yes, I need to do exercise but I have so many chronic pain issues not to mention depression from the pain that I don't do much. I can't even walk much due to foot pain problems. Anyway, my blood glucose used to be around the 140 mark then I started taking Actos 30 mg mg., I now take ONLY take 15 mg and my fasting blood sugar is around 110 to 115. I also barely eat in the morning - a cup of yogart and a banana for breakfast, a small turkey sandwhich for lunch. Afternoon I feel I'm having a hypglycemic attack so I have some cookies and coffee or tea (I need the caffeine- I'm dying from fatigue!) Sometimes I feel like I'm having a hypoglymeic attack if I have supper late. My question is why am I even taking Actos if I'm having hypoglycemic attacks?? Should I be eating more for lunch or breakfast to prevent the hypoglycemic attacks? But then I will putting on pounds, which I don't want.
