Some people will even check their sugars with a glucometer. Best of luck! ...Read more

The usual dose is 325 MG per day but there is nothing wrong with tripling that for now until you have the levels restored. There are also other remedies but this is one of the safest routes to go. I definitely hope that it solves the problem. ...Read more

Reevaluation: Typically, the evaluation of unusual symptoms initially focuses on ruling out the most likely and the most dangerous causes of symptoms/findings. When workup does not reveal a problem, we reevaluate. Sometimes the symptoms or physical findings have changed, making the diagnosis more clear. If not, we consider the less likely/less dangerous ones. If workup complete & no answer, seek 2nd opinion. ...Read more
