I find my readings go well over 200, enen into the 300 range; I guess depending on the type of meal. I get very listless and have arm pain when I attempt to lift them. Also. the neuropothy seems to have if anyting increased as my hands and feet feel a "tingling" sensation associated with PND

After having a stroke lost a great deal of weight and endocrinologist prescribed this and I got off insulin. Took Prandin for six months then lost more weight and stopped. Two years later put back on 20lbs and started taking Prandin again it helped me get A1C down to 6.3 from 7.0. Love the ease of taking before meals but sugars tend to fluctuate greatly from low 60's to over 200 depending time of day and amount of activity. I have noticed onset of neuropathy type symptoms and recently strong pains in my arms since restarted Prandin use. Went to cardiologist regarding arm pain though heart is still pretty healthy found it interesting that someone else noted the leg and arm pains... I had a great deal of leg muscle difficulty which I attributed to Crestor but now am wondering if it could be the Prandin? Have been diabetic 18 years and have good eye sight and good kidney health so I will continue Prandin as long as the Dr. says. Easier to travel with than insulin though that worked well while i needed it too.

I HAVE BEEN TAKING PRANDIN FOR 16 YEARS WITH EXELENT RESULTS. STARTED WITH 1+1/2MG AND INCREASED TO 3+1/2 OVER TIME. ALL OF A SUDDEN I STARTED TO GET LOW BLOOD SUGAR REACTIONS.[GLUCOSE LEVEL ~60] NOW TAKE ONLY 1 PILL OF 1/2MG AT DINNER, EAT ANYTHING AND MY BLOOD ALWAYS READS GOOD. ARE THERE ANY RECORDS OF DIABETES CURING ITSELF LIKE THIS? COULD SOME OTHER MEDICAL CONDITION BE EFFECTING MY BODY'S INSULIN PRODUCTION? IS THIS A MIRICAL?

I'm very happy on how this med has lowered my sugar readings. I have been on it for about 3 weeks. I feel though I need to stop taking it because my back and hips hurt 24 hours a day. Will call doctor and see what he thinks. Anyone else have this problem?

I just started taking Prandin today. My blood sugar was over 200 this morning fasting; after breakfast was still above 200. I took my first dose of Prandin of 1mg at lunch and tested my blood sugar at 3pm and it come down to 82!. I haven't seen a reading like that in a very very long time. I felt jittery so i ate a small snack. I am eager to see how this medicine will do in the next few days.

My doctor has me take different strengths of Prandin depending on my meal size. Used to be on Starlix-it wasn't helping my sugars at all but Prandin seems to be keeping me under control very well.
