So, my mom was diagnosed with T2 several months back. Her doctor told her that once your A1c is above a certain number, you are a "full-fledged diabetic" (she was pre-d up until then). The first few weeks, she checked her bg daily. Every single time, she was in range--sometimes even on the lower side of normal (90's). Now, she checks every few weeks, sometimes only once a month. She's never been high. She's been taking Glucofauge (sp?) since she was pre-d, but other than that she hasn't been doing anything to control her bg (adjusted diet/exercise, etc.) yet she is ALWAYS in range. Can someone with T2 have "honeymooning" periods, like people with T1 sometimes do? How long can it last? Or is it just luck? Or could it be as simple as taking the medicine?
