Well I am new to this and trying to figure it all out. I check my bs every morning as per Dr instructions most of the time it is 125 + - Some mornings as high as 135 or low as 90 And I cant tell any difference in food intake or type of food some time when I eat good it seems worse. Could it be the time difference like eating dinner later in the evening as opposed to eating early and going longer without food? Many times I am just not hungry later in the evening. This is a lot of crap to learn for a newby, Thanks

I was diagnosed three years ago and I am still
learning. I know I am alot luckier than many people
on dc. I lived 64 years of my live not having to
deal with this. I just wanted to share what my dr
told me. Your meter reading is at that moment of your
sugar, It changes constanly. The most important is your
A1C. Your morning total is also important because it
tells you if your body is doing what is should while asleep

So, I am also newly diagnosed, started my first dose of metformin this morning. If your body is doing things correctly at night, shouldn't your blood sugar be under 100? My average morning sugars are 140. But my premeal and postmeal have been between 90 and 115. My A1C is 6.8%. Where do I stand here? Is the metformin going to help out my A1C's?

Welcome to DC, you are at the right place. Your numbers don't seem to bad at all. When ever you eat write down what you ate so you can see what makes your
numbers go up. Any time you have any questions just ask and someone will answer you. Dan
