OK, I need help, I had one DR tell me I was pre diabetic gave me a script for testing supplies until I could get into see my Family DR which I was hoping would be sometime in the next few weeks. Well yesterday a friend of mine had a pool party, I went, before I left I had eaten breakfast and before I left the house which was about 40 minutes after eating, my BS was 264… It took me about 40 minutes to get to her house, and when I got there, I check my level again cause her hubby is full blown diabetic.. When I checked it again it was still 264. She had made a comment about going to the ER and I said no, we were going to get into the pool.. *I had my daughter with me and wasn't going to spoil her day* Well we went swimming, had fun.. Came home, we went to get something to eat. After eating, my BS shot to 275 about a hour later she panic and called 911 well I had eaten a chocolate pie before she called, and by the time they got there it was a little under 200 I think like 187. They told me I was fine But they said I could go into the ER with them or I could go in on my own. So I decided to go in on my own.
When I got there they checked it, and it was now 138 this was two hours or more after eating.
Well this is my problem… I got back to a room, and long and behold I got MY family Dr.. Which normally I am thrilled about. Although here is my problem. He told me that its *normal* for BS to spike up to 275 even as late as a hour and half sometimes two hours later, it was fine. When I told him I was getting high numbers after eating, he said that was normal, since he has already tested me and all the test seemed fine.. I said no, you haven't done the glucose test, he said yes I have I do it every time.. I said no, not the fasting two hour.. He said no this is true, but since my blood work for the last six months has been between 80 and 113 he said he isnt worried about me and my BS.
So now what do I do? He is my family DR and normally I adore him.. He has always treated me right. But I am worried if my BS keep sky rocketing that one day I am going to hurt myself or worse my daughter. I dont want to go out to lunch and have it spike and be driving and end up not being able to control my car cause I am shaking to bad or my head up up killing me.
Is he right? Is it (normal) for people who aren't diabetic to have BS to spike like mine are, and then drop? I have figured out, that chocolate will cause it to drop I learned that for sure, someone told me about it and they were right, although I didnt know any kind of chocolate would do it.
Thanks, and Hope all the moms have a wonderful Mother's Day
