Do you ever get a day that no matter what you do or eat , your bg goes up? I am still within acceptable levels, but all day, every time I test they are up! I started out the day in the 90s. Ate breakfast, took insulin. Before lunch was 111, so cut back on lunch and took insulin. Now before dinner it's 117. What the heck is going on? Is it normal to have a day like this, or am I just spoiled because my bg has been under 100 mostly for a long time. I don't want to have to start over. Maybe I'm just stressing over tomorrow's appt. I do not like this. Help! Need some advice.

I was at the hairy edge of 140 all day yesterday…which is high for me…me no likey…my son seems to think it was because I spent most of the day cleaning out the closets…in a almost constant state of exercise…he may be right…but I woke up this morning at 87…so all is good…

Sounds like a little stress. Those numbers are wonderful even if they are off for you. Just get over your appointment and see if they get better.

Hey suecsdy, I can empathize with the concern over your high blood sugars. Howver, even for a non-diabetic a blood sugar of 117 is good (normal range pre-prandial is 70 to 100 mg/dL and post-prandial it is not more than 140 mg/dL). I wish I had your blood glucose numbers - when I am high it is typically in the range of 240 to 290 mg/dL. But I do have the advantage of taking an insulin bolus when high. Good luck in managing your blood sugar.

I may have found the reason for my little spikes today…I took an msn tab yesterday for the shoulder pain. It's the only new thing I did. Guess I won't do that again

BG is a little high for 1 day. Is really no big deal. Yours isn' t even high. A number of things could be raising your BG. Sounds to me you may have answered your own question. The stress from.having to face the dr tomorrow is probably what's causing it. I don' t quite understand why you are so nervous to face your dr…you've done what your suppose to. There should be no reason to stress over. Just remember, your dr. Is just a person. They use the bathroom just like us. Hugs, VL

I just want this reversal so much and this is not the Dr who did the first surgery and I still remember how bad I felt physically after the first one. And how long will she make me wait. Just a whole lot of mental baggage. It's a big thing for me.

My answer to a BG level which is higher than I like is exercise. Even if I have to walk circles around the family room, I move—walk, swing my arms, dance, even clean house (only as a last resort). It usually works for me.

This is what I do also. Exercise always brings it down some, even when highly stressed.

suecsdy, when you say you don't want to have to start over, what do you mean, exactly?
