Go to see a Dr. Your past history should be reviewed again let your Dr. know about your concerns so he/she can do a full lab panel with fasting blood sugar and A1C to show the 90 day average reading. They should also order a urinalysis to see what is going on with ketones. I am sure being hypoglycemic there are dietary restrictions and not sure doughnuts are included. I think that diet requires a little more protein and smaller meals more often with the right carbs right? I would consult with the Dr. about were your at with blood sugars and get on the right diet and exercise for you to lose the extra pounds. You must avoid being close to passing out.
Sorry no answer to your exact question because everyone has an individual body that responds differently and changes differently as diet and exercise as well as the organs and glands in the body can change in the way they function.
WOW Anon, that had to be a scary thing. As long as you get an hour of exercise a day and I mean vigorous such as treadmill or bike or stepper and do some weight bearing if you can, you should be fine if the diet is also exact. I lost 23 pounds just by taking a small dinner plate and splitting it 3 ways. 1/3 lean protein, 1/3 veggies and last 1/3 moderate fresh fruit. I eat a lot of salad. I stay away from all the bad carbs such as pizza, pasta. white rice and bread. I may have a couple of baby red potatoes since they metabolize more slowly, otherwise no potatoes.
For snacks I have 1/2 low sugar/ low fat yogurt only before working out, Trader Joes mixed nuts with dried cranberries (only a few) and Safeway/Vons Lacy swiss cheese at the deli since it is low fat and low sodium.
For breakfast, 1/3 cup plain Quaker oatmeal and a Morning Star veggie sausage pattie for the protein. Be sure and add protein when you eat carbs since they work well together. If not your blood sugar could elevate more than you thought it would.
Always test 2 hours after any food just to see how the body did with it. What works for some will not work well for others.
What are you doing now about the exercise. I am glad you are doing it now! What foods do you seem to eat now? How about meds? Are you on oral meds? Or type 2 on insulin?
I am so glad you are adapting. It really is the way we all should have taken care of ourselves to begin with. Nothing like a little nudge right
67 pounds in 2 days? Not sure about that You need to see the Dr. with a list of your blood sugars fasting, 2 hours after the meal and next meal and bedtime.
Also, what type of insulin and meds are you on?
Are you eating the right carb choices such as veggies, moderate fruit along with the protein?
For snacks have some nuts, half apple, cheese, half low sugar yogurt if you are about to exercise.
Eat smaller portions more often and small snacks inbetween.
Eat a lot of salad if you need some filler.
In the mornings be sure to add a protein to breakfast such as a Morning Star veggie sausage or an egg once and a while. If you eat oatmeal be careful, see how your body handles it. Some go with the lower sugar packages and I have to go with the Quacker Original with no sugar.
Do not eat bad carbs such as white rice, potatoes(unless a couple of baby reds), bread, pizza or pasta. Stay away from muffins with high fat and sugar even if you just want half, it usually will not work!
If you are on mealtime insulin that is fast acting for the spikes called Humalog, go see the Dr. and fess up to how you are really eating to get the immediate problelm solved and then change to the items I listed and your insulin amount may go down. Carry oj with you at all times and get tons of exercise. If you walk 1 mile, start walking 2, if you walk 2 start walking 3, keep increasing it and make it brisk.
You cannot stay in the 400 range, that is typically ER services and can cause real dehydration problems. Please tend to this fast and if you need to change what you are doing just do it.
Please test often and get your numbers faxed to the Dr. and go in!
Yes, and some are a base of skim milk and milk can be a spiker just on its own and then with the 13 carbs which is most likely the milk itself being sugar that is high. Everybody reacts different so I would check it out and test a couple hours later and if the blood sugar is higher than 140 I would take that snack down a little until it worked since it is one of those foods that is so very good. I know with my type 1 I should only have yoglurt before a work out or I take 1 unit of Humalog to cover it. I use Yoplait light.
I have a good laugh for everybody. I can laugh now but not when it happened. I put my foot up on the toilet seat rather quick and it may have been slightly damp and it slipped in the toilet and I fell into my wall by the toilet and had to have the wall repaired through to the sheetrock. My foot and ankle survived with out any problem. My foot went all the way to the hole at the end of the bowl . It all happened so fast and I could not believe it. Everybody, take advice from me, keep the toilet seat top down when drying or lotioning feet.
This is why I question my diagnosis of Osterperosis, if their was ever a time for broken shattered bones in the lower back and hip, this would have been that time. This was when I weighed 20 more pounds than now and my balance was not great.
Only go to a Podiatrist for trimming and you may be able to find a Podiatrist with a nail shop on site. I have found that to be the best way for Pedicure since I am Diabetic and I worry about sterile tools being used. My Podiatrist uses pre packaged sterilized tools and I have no worries about infection. Nail shops to me can be careless.
Us Diabetics though need to be careful since if the sterile tools are not really sterile that would not be a good thing for anyone and Diabetics especially. Also Diabetics need gentle work and not get the heals killed with sanding. I go to an actual foot Dr. that has a shop right in her practice for pedicures and they have a choice called " Desugar my tootsies" for Diabetics. They also use packaged sterilized tools and toss after use. To me any shop outside the walls of the Pediatrist's office is anyones guess as to the way they sterilize the tools.
Louise, remember after every use on the board for the hands or heels to use a brush and some Lysol Bathroom cleaner or another type possibly with bleach and brush good and rinse. At Sally they have little nail brushes. I use 1 of those to clean the board and rinse it good and stand it up to dry. I have a plastic holder for showers that sit on a bench it has holes in it. I have all soaps and shampoos in it. I just toss the board in there until next time, about once a week. Just be sure to only work that board until the heel is rather smooth. The board has to sides, one rough and the other for smoothing afterwords. Use dry heels.
