I am recently diagnosed within the last month. I keep thinking maybe I am coming out of the "Honeymoon" phase. For instance my BG this morning hit 274 after breakfast. Had the same thing I always do which never does this. Had the same thing a few days ago with lunch. Is this normal or will it "level out" over time?

Constant tweaking of meds and meals is a part of our lives now. Sometimes it is a fluke, but if the pattern is occurring more often, you want to keep a log of what you are eating and how much insulin you are administering and when. Then sit down with your doctor to see what needs to be done.

There are so many factors such as exercise, stress, and even a bad night's sleep can affect our numbers. We become great detectives as we go thru all of this. The honeymoon might be over, but the marriage has just begun.

Is your insulin out of date or been exposed to high/low temperatures? Did you retest to see if the 274 was accurate? There could be many reasons for it but it may be that you have lost insulin production completely and the dose of insulin you are on is not enough anymore. How were you diagnosed? Was it because of symptoms or at random?

I have recurring Pancreantitus so they have been checking my A1C which was at 280. Yes I did re-test and it was the same. It finally came down to where I was at about 75 a few hours later. This happened to me yesterday with lunch.
