Default Actos and Glucotrol

After taking Glucotrol alone for a couple of years with poor blood sugar control, I finally found a doctor who agreed with me that I was insulin resistant and put me on Actos along with my GLucotrol XL twice a day. WHAT A HUGE DIFFERENCE!!!! My hgba1c went from 8 down to 5.3 within 2 months! I do not notice any side effects from this drug and do receive frequent liver profiles to make sure everything is okay. I am so thankful that this drug is available, it has made a huge difference in my life. There are alot of type II diabetics that would benefit from this drug but it is not being offered/prescribed; instead they are being put on insulin and still have poor control. Doctors need to get their act together and start looking at insulin resistant diabetes a little closer. Poor control is not always the patients fault.
