I have a big family history of diabetes. I cared for my mother and though I understood it. But I'm not find my blood sugar reading are way different from day to day.
I type II on Metformin… doing.. ok. I finally realized I'm just guessing. I'm supposed to test just twice a day. Morning and before lunch. But I have had some very different reading before lunch. I have been really careful to do the same activity (walking same distance for same time) eating exactly the same thing and had totally different reading. Some days I have had reading before lunch of 180 one day and 120 another. I have had some lows where I feel terrible… below 70 sick and sweaty. I have days I though I was doing great to find late evening my reading were nearly 300. I started testing more often (my insurance will not supply me with more test trips). I have learned a lot since i started test 6 times a day. I've learned when to eat some carbs and when I should just have lower carb meal or snack. Is everybody this way. How do you deal figure out what should be doing if you only guess what you reading are.
