I've only been diagnosed since the end of March this year so maybe it's just I'm still so new.
My issue is that my numbers are all over the place. I've completely changed how I eat, watch everything and seriously count carbs, I've even lost some weight in the process and am getting back to hiking, exercising and feeling really good. So with that said, here's where my puzzlement comes into play…we went on vacation and I ate crap…well I tried to stay on it but I love fried oysters and I'm in Chincoteague Island so there's no way I'm not having oysters…lol…tropical salad, some bread, blooming onion, went for an Orange Julius and my numbers two hours later are under 130.
The next day we went and had soft shell crabs, Smith Island cake, funnel cake again my numbers are under 130 and not only that but they stay at good levels.
I come home and I'm eating yogurt and egg beaters and my numbers are up in the 180's. It's not high carbs yogurt either, its the Light and Fit that has 9 grams.
The only reasonable explanation I can figure out is that on both those days, there was a lot of walking around sight seeing and my other thought that was maybe high protein from the seafood was helping? I don't know, it's so frustrating and makes me want to just eat whatever since it seems if I eat crap I have better numbers than when I'm trying…lol…this makes no sense to me.
Anyone have any ideas? I'm scheduled to see my endocrinologist at the end of June and soon I will be having my AC1 and all bloodwork done again. I know I'm doing better than before and that the AC1 should be lower than before. Well it better be at 11.3. I want off insulin so bad that it's the only goal I see and when my numbers go up, it's frustrating since I figure they won't take me off.
