Thanks for asking dLife.

It is great that you recognize that your fasting blood glucose may be above a safe range. The medicine that you are presently taking may not be providing adequate control of your blood glucose.

Share your blood glucose readings when you talk with your doctor. He or she and review your log and determine how best to update your diabetes treatment plan. Be sure to continue with your meal and exercise plan. healthful eating and active lifestyle are the foundation of diabetes control.
