I have been making really good progress with my #s after cutting way, way back on carbs, losing weight, and going to the gym an hour a day 6 days a week. My A1C readings are between 5.5 and 6.3 on average most days (they were in the 8 range), and I am working to get them down even further, and I know I will :) I am taking Januvia, Glipozide, and Metformin (500 mg now, cut back from 1500 :)).
Here's my question - my fasting/first morning reading still is running high (130's, sometimes, 140's), and I am wondering if it could be because I have been eating a piece of fruit (red grapefruit, no sugar added - love it, or nectarine or plum) right before bed. I gave up dessert months ago, but enjoy a piece of fruit as it really satisfies my sweet tooth. But maybe I am eating it too close to bed time (I usually go to bed at 11 and I eat the fruit at like 10 or 10:30)…
Would love your insights/feedback about this and anything else that is working for you all to get/keep your BS in the low ranges. Thanks everyone, and nice to "meet" you all! :)
