Good morning everyone! Again I woke up and tested 77! Im eating the right foods. It seems to be getting lower. I was testing inbetween 82-92. For a ciuple of days its been in tbe 70's. My food I will eat are egg whites, fruit, some veggies, cheerios, wasa crackers, tuna, chicken, fish, ham, turkey, glucerna bars, cheesesticks etc. Im still taking 1500mg met and thyroid med. Only for 3weeks.. Exercising 6days a week, drinking water. Am I doing something? When I excerise,when is the best time to snack before/after? Im scared for it to get low. How do I know it the meds or low blood sugar? Still trying to understand this new lifestyle… Thanks everyone!!

Try testing after exercise for awhile to see how your body is responding to it then you will know if you need to make changes to your meds or maybe have and extra snack afterwards. Just a thought.

Exercise is the only time that your body doesn't require insulin to get glucose out of your blood stream. It can also last for hours after you exercise. So if you have added that to your routine, you may need to make some adjustments in your intake or your meds.
