If everyone gets the hormone boost at 3am, the wouldnt everyone be considered pre-diabetic? I can be 100 at 1am and 177 by 6am. Having a snack doesnt seem to help.Dr says theres nothing I can do. Doesnt that throw my A1C off?View Thread
Thanks to all who answered. Im not perfect by any means and for awhile I was doing OK on glyburide and Avandia untill my dr took me off the avandia and put me on metformin which made me sick as a dog. Have lost 40 lbs and sugar has climbed ever since.Dr added Actos and Invokana.Sugars have started to come down from 300 to 130-170 before meals. 100 in the night and 170 after meals. Not bad but no cigar.Will keep truckin but its so depressing- I wake up every night and obsess about what I can do better. Not fun at all.View Thread
How many hours without eating is considered a fast? If I eat dinner at 6 and take blood sugar at 10 its usually 100 but then at 5 am when I get up, its 146. Should I be having a snack around 10?View Thread
last nite after dinner I had to go out and did some walking and climbing stairs. About 4 hours later, thinking blood sugar would be nice and low, it was 286!! What did I do?? Had maybe 24 carbs for dinner.View Thread
I am type 2. the reason I asked was while I was excercising, I got dizzy and had to sit down. I didnt have my meter with me nor did I have any juice or anything. When I got home an hour later my sugar was 223. I wonder if I went low and had my liver help out. I also had a small breakfast. Thanks for your answer. I now carry m&ms with me!!View Thread
