Ugh, I'm so frustrated! I'm a young 22 year old type 2 and it's been a really long road coping with my diagnosis. Especially since I wasn't obese or inactive. I just happened to come down with this scary disease. Even my doctors are kind of puzzled as to why I got it other than it running in my family.
Anyway..that's not why I'm currently frustrated.
For over a month now that I recall, my BS has been really good. 2 hours after my dinners, my BS readings have been around the low 100's-120's. Which is normal from what I've read.
Suddenly this past week, my 2 hour after dinner readings have been as high as 192. The thing is, I haven't changed a darn thing! I've kept up with my exercise routine, and I haven't changed my diet. I've eaten the same things I've always eaten even when my BS was really good.
Why on earth would my BS suddenly be high this week if nothing has changed??
The only thing that was different this week was my period. I don't really recall my blood sugar spiking when I've previously been on my period, but my menstrual cycles are pretty irregular so I can't really remember. I just know this same week my BS spiked, I've been on my period. Is there some kind of correlation there or we just don't get any slack when it comes to Type 2?
Sorry for my pessimism, I just get down about it sometimes.
Any advice? Thanks guys.
