Went to doc last week for checkup. In Nov fainted from low blood pressure and hospitalized for 4 days. Docs reduced my Lantus by 30 units. Took away one BP pill. Ate hospital diet for diabetic (many stuff I wouldn't eat at home including carbs) and had good numbers. Went home and tried to do the same diet but numbers continue to climb, especially if carbs are added. A carb for me is adding a 100% wheat bread slice. Spike 170 points! Went for a year trying to cut out carbs because of spikes. But hospital diet ate carbs and did ok. The other day tested before diner - 279. Ate salad of Romanine lettuce, onion, carrot, green pepper, fat free dressing. Test 2 hours later, 276. Don't get it? Last A1c - 9.6.
