I'm new here, but not new to diabetes. I have lost 25 pounds over the past 2 months because i had to change my eating habits due to injuries to my teeth and mouth when I was involved in a motorcycle accident recently. The weight loss brought my blood glucose levels down considerably. I was taking 70 units of Lantus, but reduced it down, (with my doctor's suggestions), to not taking any Lantus insulin at all.
That was three weeks ago. Now, my blood glucose is going up.
For example, yesterday, it was 211 in the morning when I woke up, (fasting). I ate a small breakfast, just 1 and 1/2 carb servings about 8 AM. I tested again before lunch and it was 280. Why such a jump with a small carb serving for breakfast?
Another example. It was 166 last night 4 hours after dinner. Dinner was 4 carb servings. I had no snack and blood glucose was 202 this morning when I woke up.
I am eating 9-12 carb servings per day, spread out evenly over 3 meals. I am confused. Is there any logical explanation? Thanks.
