Hello, I got sleeved on March 8th; my blood sugars have been low around 125 average (without pills). My primary says sometimes it takes about 1 - 1-1/2 months to get off medication, but you know everyone is different.

I had Gastric Bypass so it may be different, but I was off all diabetes meds when I got home from the hospital, and my diabetes is in remission!! First few days I couldn't regulate, and had some serious lows. Now, 13 days out, my blood sugar stays between 90-95 all day. Of course I am not eating food though!!!

I am insulin dependent so I started out taking 3 insulin’s and one pill. I only take 2 now and my blood sugar is high some days. I see my endo soon and hopefully we can discuss what’s going on. I really don’t eat much and can’t understand why it’s still high.

I'm 6 weeks post-op and my sugar is just recently lowering. I was so freaked out because the told me to not take anything post surgery. I was running over 200 morning and night and I was eating hardly anything and nothing the first week. I was insulin dependent, but now am running about 150, which is much better.

Hi Rima,

I just found this forum. I am 2 weeks post-op and was on 3 oral diabetes meds + insulin prior. A week after surgery my meter was giving me readings between 64 - 89. This worried me as I have never been that low since I was diagnosed. I called my NP manager and she said, don't worry...this is what normal is. She then took me off my only oral I was crushing. It has been a week and I feel tremendous and my post-op appointment with my surgeon was completely positive. My readings are now almost all in the 80's and I intend to keep them there. He said I'm in remission and it could last for years. Eventually I may have to go back to treating diabetes, but he said it would be a very minimal oral med. Because this is the underlying reason I chose surgery with weight loss secondary, I couldn't be happier! (someone cutting onions?)

Best of luck to you with your journey.

I was on two oral meds, an injectable, and insulin. I was told to stop both orals and the insulin post-op, and I stepped off the injectable within six weeks (dropped from highest to nine during that time. Before surgery I had an A1c of 8.3, now it’s 5.5 with no meds.

I was on 1000mg of metformin 2x per day and around 40 units of insulin and still had an a1c above 7. I went home after surgery on no meds. At my 3 month checkup my a1c was 5.1. I just had a health screening at work the other day (now almost 6 months post-op) and my fasting blood sugar was normal. It feels great to be on this side of diabetes!

Until recently I was on three oral meds for my type 2 diabetes (low doses of metformin and gliclizide, and 25mg of jardiance daily). Last week I was able to discontinue the gliclizide because my A1C is at 7 and I was having regular lows. I'm hopeful that after surgery I'll be able to kick the others to the curb as well.
