I am a diabetic, type1. I often get glucose spikes even when I haven't eaten anything I don't eat much at all, and sometimes eat once a day. just no appetite mostly. Sometimes it happens only if i eat a steak. It's confusing. Why dose this happen? I was told that other meds i am taking for other problems could be the reason.
Also, i wanted to know if there are other things out there to use for type diabetes, besides injections and the pump.
How do I stop these spikes?
What can i do? Please help!

I am on the pump and that helped me a lot I seldom get the highs and slows that I did on the shots

thanks i was on the pump before and my glucose levels were better, just that i couldn't afford the supplies and all anymore so i stopped. i hope medtronic over 1700 because I couldn't afford the supplies. I am considering the omnipod now.

for me the pump was just too big and noticeable, and i got tired of people asking me what it was and why there is a tube.

i am glad the pump is working for you, i may reconsider going back on it. :)

thanks harlen

I'm a T2 but the liver can dump glucose anytime, if you don't eat anything at all it dumps.

How high are the spikes and how long do they last?

i've had high as 559, and once i take my short acting insulin it starts to drop, but i get these spikes often even if i eat a healthy meal or a meal with no carbs.

i hate this
