Thank for some advice. I have called my doctor and mentioned what happened. They have called the a meter and test strips to my pharmacy. I am to test several days a week to see how things look. I am have been trying to watch the things I eat and watch how much I drink. I have been hypoglycemic since I was a teenager so this high sugar has me thrown for a little bit of a loop. I will take your advice to heart. I am sure I will be checking back in from time to time for more as I adjust to this. I thank you again!View Thread
I am confused as to what I should do. I was recently diagnosed as glucose impaired/prediabetes this winter. I am not supposed to be checked again till August. My numbers weren't to bad. Fasting was 110 and A1C was normal. This weekend I went on 2 day canoe trip and had my blood sugar go up(shaking, dizzy, tired, headache). Don't now what it was on the day it happened, because I don't have a tester. Doctor didn't think it was necessary. A friend of mine checked it this morning when I got to work, because i was still shaking and dizzy, and it was 148. Feel a little better this evening, but not great. Not sure if I should call the doctor or wait and see if it straightens out with strict diet. I had several glasses of wine once at camp the night before this happened. Not sure how much that played in all this. Any advice would be helpful.View Thread
