The issue I'm having isn't necessarily that my numbers are high (I have an occasional high that I can usually explain by my miscounting of carbs). It's that the dr is hoping to keep the numbers from being more than 30 points difference. I can't seem to make it happen. I can be at 92 before breakfast, then before lunch I'm 148. Then perhaps I drop to high 90's after lunch.

I'm trying to be conscious of the types of food I'm eating. I truly am at a loss. I am taking Levemir twice a day (and I'm pretty good at keeping it 12 hours apart.) I use a bolus and sliding scale of Humalog for my meals.

When I was admitted to the hospital last month, the ER dr said that my A1c was close to 16. My average here in my log book is 173, so I'm not sure how much lower my A1c will be when it's rechecked in December.

I'm trying to be diligent, but I remember a former dr telling me that ups and downs like this were as bad as being out of control (which I'm not sure I believe THAT!)

Any thoughts? THanks in advance.

Close to 16 your A1c ??? With your #'s as low as u said that's not POSSIBLE one of u is mistaken or not telling the truth … With the #'s u mentioned u should be down to 5 or 6 point something not close to 16 …

And just when I think I understand…I went out to eat with my oldest son, and just ordered without giving it much thought (Macaroni and cheese and fried shrimp) and my after lunch Blood sugar was 131.
