Got the bad news in Dec from doc A1C is 8.3 I didn't have a clue what that meant or what to do. Went to a few offered classes run by a dietician.Got a meter and started to monitor my blood sugar at various times.
Went from eating one meal a day and evening snacks (ice cream candy etc) to breakfast (usually a bowl of cereal, then evening meal watching carbs, then snacks such as popcorn, Popsicles, apples or oranges. That for me is a great step forward. My question/s are the numbers I get.
Get up in the morning and have numbers like 140 139, and 173 for example. Have breakfast then recheck about 2 hours later and get numbers 150 or 165.
One more thing, when doctor gave me the diagnose he put me on metafoman (SP) 1000 morning 1000 evening which I have been taking. I take the evening one just before bed.
Take a reading before dinner and get numbers like 178 then 2 hours later 115?? Had pizza
or pre dinner 114 post 166 (that one makes sense to me)
pre dinner 131 post 123?? later that evening had popcorn, cucumber, celery and later get 144??
post dinner number 166 snacks 2 Popsicle apple and plumb number went to 233
Hope someone can enlighten me, hope I can find my way back here for any feedback
