Are you drinking "diet" soft drinks after or during your meal? Nutrisweet, Splenda etc., spike your sugar. You may be getting a false reading because of these ingredients. My mother would share her concern over her "high" sugar readings. She drank "diet" sodas a lot, but the A1C proved they were fine.
If you use these products, stop for a while. Try Truvia or some other form of Stevia. They do not spike your sugars.
I and my doctor have had may a discussion about taking drugs for "prevention". I personally don't agree and do not take meds for cholesterol. Plus, my liver cannot tolerate even the mildest brand. I feel the less chemicals in the body, the better.View Thread
