When I checked my BS before breakfast this morning, in my opinion a little high at 172, but 3 hours later I got extremely thirsty so checked it again at 246. Breakfast was a 2 egg ham and cheese omelet, sliced roma tomato, 2 link sausage and 30 minutes later a small banana. Having terrible time controlling my BS as late. All blood test are not showing anything that can be dealt with. Liver, kidney, and spleen functions are good. I take 60 units of slow acting insulin twice a day and 5 units of fast acting before every meal. Lost and confused in Reidsville.

The banana was probably the culprit. Do you count the carbs in the foods that you eat? A 7 inch banana has 27 grams of carb. Carbs are the main reason for spikes in BG.

Hi JIm. I don't have any advice to offer,but I can give a little support. I am fortunate to have good bg numbers, but in spite of taking my meds, trying to eat right and exercise more, I'm developing other issues. Sometimes, even when we are doing it right, stuff goes wrong.

Thank you. I just get so frustrated trying to keep up with everything and I think my GP has done all he can do since I was first told I had diabetes. I'm trying to get a referral to an endo, but no luck yet.

Hi..Jim…was the banana overly ripe…before I went low carb I included bananas in my meal plan…and soon found out that if I ate them the way I LOVED them..with those tiny little black spots…they sent my BG soaring…

It was more ripe than I like them. But my wife gave it to me, and not knowing better, I ate it.
