I was diagnosed in June 2011. I have been checking my blood sugar 3 times daily per DR's orders. My numbers are usually between 140-180. I test when I get up in the morning and then at least 2 hours after breakfast, and then at bedtime. My numbers are still in that range. Only once, I had a blood sugar reading of 111. I have been really trying to only eat healthy food and have been exercising more that before I was diagnosed. The number still seem high to me.
Another thing, when I supposed to be concerned about my number? When should I call my doctor? I don't know how I am supposed to feel. I mean, when I last saw my doctor, he explained that diabetes can go undetected for 10 years. For the last 8 months, I have been feeling run-down with frequent headaches and other minor ailments. I figured it was just part of the aging process (I am almost 54). Now I am not so sure.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
