Before I address this to my doctor, I thought I would get some info from those I thust! :) My sugar levels stay way too high after I eat a meal. For the most part, my meals are diabetic healthy. By high I am talking about 250-300, 3hrs after I eat. For supper, the last that I eat until morning, they are still high, as in 150 9-10 hours after I eat. My appointment is the week after this coming week, on the 26th. Any input from y'all, the seat of wisdom? Thanks, Jim

I know that I can eat the right foods, but too large of portions and it will make my BS really high. I need to have much smaller portions and eat about the same amount at each meal-nit save it up for dinner, After I went to the dietician, I found at alot more about what causes the BS to rise. It's a long process and can be frustrating. Sometimes my numbers go up or down for no apparent reason. It's like solving a giant puzzle-and everybody has a different puzzle. Write down your questions for the doctor-if I don't I forget to ask some of them Good luck and keep coming back to let us know how you are doing. Elaine

I have fund it useful to put the list of questions on my computer and just prior to the Appt. print out 2 copies. I for the Dr and 1 for me. I have handed the questions to the nurse who does the pre appointment interview and ask her to pass it on to Dr. That way Dr has opportunity to do some brief research if needed for a question.

It's not a perfect system, but it's better than trying to remember what you want to ask.
