Hey DC Friends!
For breakfast I had a small cup of grapefruit w/ no sugar added (15 carbs) and I took my 1000mg of Metformin w/ that. Since I ate very little for breakfast I thought it'd be nice to have a slice of pizza for lunch. Yes, one slice can't hurt!!
2 hrs after eating my mediocre pizza my BG was 152!! That may not be high for some, but it was hiiiiiigh for me! I got sooooo frustrated bc it was ONE piece & does that mean I can never have pizza?! Usually if/when I cheat I do it at dinner bc that's when I take my 2nd dosage of Metformin & my levels don't get so high!
Here's the part that scares me…
When I got off wk at 4pm I went to the grocery store and while standing in line at the deli I got the worst headache & was shaky. After testing my BG I found out that it was 60. I've been 60 before & lower, but I've NEVER felt quite that bad. It's 9pm & my head still hurts.
Why is if that when I go higher than normal (after I sneak bread, rice, or fries) that my BG crashes!? I should know the answer, but I don't know. And will it greatly affect my A1c to be high for 3 hrs every once in a while?!
Sometimes I am thankful for my diagnosis bc in a sense… IT SAVED MY LIFE. Today. Today I'm not so grateful. I barely ate anything & had high numbers & feel like crap.
