I was diagnosed last sept after throwing up for a month and was hospitalised for 1 week. my problem is I am not a big breakfast or lunch eater. I worked night shift in nursing homes for 14 years as a CNA and eat supper which would have been breakfast for me. My sugar level are higher in the morning than any other time of day. When I do eat breakfast or lunch my levels have droppped to 35, so I don't eat breakfast that often because I know what will happen but now my levels are dropping between 4-5 in the evening to below 50. I don't eat bread so telling me to eat a sandwich won't help. I actually don't eat carbs at all I mainly eat tomatoes & lettuce and drink diet 7 up & coffee. I need ideas for lunch that will keep my levels up. I can always tell the are dropping I start sweating on my forehead (is that normal?). My ac1 levels are 5.7% and i take 10 mg of glyburide BID with out it my levels are over 300. Any ideas would be helpful.
