My husband was diagnosed 4 months ago with type 2. At that time, his fasting BG was 255. Our doctor told him to do the "diet and exercise" thing and in 4 weeks he was down to a fasting 193, had lost 14 pounds, his blood pressure and cholesteral were both normal. At the 8 week mark his fasting was 179 and he had lost a total of 18 pounds. At that point our doctor told him to start testing twice a day (before breakfast and before bed). His numbers ran pretty much in the 150's for that 3rd month (both morning and evening). For this past month the doc had him change his evening test to just before supper. He's been finding that his morning readings are staying in the 150's (he tests before he eats) and the evening tests (before supper now) are in the 110's/120's. Are these numbers "good"? And why on Earth would his sugar be higher in the morning after not eating anything for 10-12 hours? Our doc just keeps saying "You're doing good. Just keep it up. We caught is early. You'll do fine."
