December 26, 2012 11:50 p.m. I just lost around 45 pounds & all the while when I was heavy I always checked my blood sugar. It has always been normal .90-110. I just checked again in the end of November & it was perfect. I took a blood reading a couple days ago & it was a little over 200. Does that automatically mean I am diabetic? Or can that happen sometimes to people when they over indulge. I had some Christmas cooking & cake eggnog. I work out 4-6 times a week & hardly ever have any junk food. Any help with this please let me know. Like I said I check it all the time & its fine this was the first time it was high & I'm freaking out.View Thread
It was from a test strip & I didn't wait 2 hours after eating. I think it might have been 15 minutes. Thanks for your help. It is very much appreciated. I didn't think I would get any responses. I made an appointment to see the Dr. this next week. View Thread
I test all the time because, my father was diabetic. So when I visit my grandmother who is also diabetic & my inlaws I test. But, I didn't wait until 2 hours after eating either. My dr, has tested me a few times fasting for 12 hours & I have never been over 126. Thanks for yor help.View Thread
