Have you met with a dietician, they really help with getting you on a good eating plan. Also, is the 8.6 up or down from where you were 3 months ago? If it is down, then congrats. If it is up, then it might be time to consider some type of medication to help? Best of luck on getting things under better control. Heidi

I have m with a dietician before. I even have a diabetic plate that I use. for the last 3 times my a1c has been going up. I'm taking three different kinds of meds. I think it's time for something different. Been taking these for awhile.

might it be the things you are eating are either the wrong things … or the portions are off? certainly a discussion worth having with your doctor, or better yet, a registered dietitian.

Right now any thing I put in my mouth shoots my sugar up. I have a diabetic plate that I use every time. I have meet with a dietitian before. I think it's just time to change my meds. I have been taking them for awhile.

It sounds like you're doing really well with your food choices. Exercise and physical activity are another important aspect of diabetes management, and perhaps you can talk with your doctor about that? ~Lynn @Glucerna
