Hello DC…I haven't been on in awhile, super busy. I have to admit these past couple weeks I haven't been checking my sugar. I have a three year old & many other things going on & lately when I check my numbers they aren't what I want or expect to see…ie., 188, 175…etc… which requires me to workout, walk on the treadmill or just get anxious because its so high so Ive been avoiding it lately (burn out?), but I DO still eat low carb & work out pretty religiously so it's so discouraging to see my numbers go up when there's not much more I can do. Well, yesterday I told my husband that I am getting back with the 'program' so to speak & start testing again. Well I did about 10 am & I hadn't eaten yet. I had coffe with Splenda(which I've never used before) & my suagr was 310! It's NEVER been this high. I was up a couple hours & hadn't eaten before I checked it. So I ate some protein, guzzled some water, got on the treadmill & jogged about 20 minutes…before I checked my sugar I had already walked my usual 3 miles, which always takes my numbers down. Checked my numbers & I was finally down to 194 which would seem high typically but I was done. Later I had some green beans with cheese sprinkled on, checked my sugar before bed, it was 310!! I was so depressed & angry. I got on the treadmill for 2 miles @ 11:30 last night although I was extremely tired. Checked my numbers 278…so I had a couple glasses of wine…250…then I went to bed. I dont typically drink wine to get my numbers down, just desperate. Too scared to check it this morning. Anyone see any red flags or have any idea what could be going on?? How high is 'too high' before I go get a shot of insulin or something. I'm on 1500 mg Metformin with an A1ac in March of 6.7. Never had this problem except when I was on steroids…which was two months ago. Sorry this post is so long, I'm just really baffled what is going on. I can only workout so much. : / Need some encouragement. Feeling very stressed.
