FBS: 147 (my best in weeks)

Received "official" diagnosis of type 2 yesterday. Will start taking oral medication next week when it comes in (mail order prescriptions). My doctor told me to start walking 10 minutes a day, watch my carbs and sugar intake, and go to a diabetes class. My class is next week (August 21). My dad and both of my brothers are/were diabetic so I wasn't surprised. I have been self-testing for about a year.

6.6 mmol/l (118.8 mg/dL)

I cut down my evening snack from a full Atkins bar (with peanut butter on top) to half a bar. It does make a difference. I'm around 6.6 mmol/L rather than 7.3.

No diabetes medication for 26 months now. WOO HOO.

A few days later and holding steady. Usually this is considered a little high, but I'm managing with diet alone ( low carb) so I'm happy.

No meds. A few days ago I was doing renovation work and didn't have time to eat properly and ate 3 Atkins bars (19 grams of carbs each) in addition to some other carbs, probably bringing me to near 100. My morning BS then was 8.7 mmol/L. ( 157 mg/dL).

Yes 90 grams of carbs in a day is too much for me.

FBS=298.

Considering my newly diagnosed diabetes was at A1C 15 5 weeks ago (now A1C 13), 298 isn't a shock. One of my lowest FBSs since I started doing daily tests a week ago.

Going for #GoalA1C7

MD2787,
For a diabetic eating "sensibly" means seriously lowering carbohydrates. If your blood sugar is lower, and you are tracking what you eat, then you'll find you were eating fewer carbs. Check that out.

I eat 20 to 50 grams of carbs a day.

FBS 108, post-dinner 94. I didn't take any pre-meal insulin today --so I'm surprised the numbers were pretty decent. I find that when I track my food --time consuming but worth the effort-- and work especially hard at eliminating as much sodium as possible from my meals, my other numbers (carbs, fats, proteins) are staying much closer to my goals. I'm hoping I get to the point where I can manage my blood glucose and eliminate insulin altogether WITHOUT having to log my food. Then I'll know I have turned a corner on eating sensibly and healthy.

Thanks James. Your suggestions are guiding me in the right direction at least. Although still not good, the numbers are going down!

FANCYFREEGMA,

Suggestions on what to eat are to only buy foods that are 6% carbs by weight, or less. Carbs raise blood sugar.

Meat is OK, cheese and fat is OK, most vegetables are OK. Only a few fruits match this, blackberries, strawberries and raspberries are on the OK list.

Yikes! 149 Looking at everyone else's numbers, I think I must be doing something really wrong with my diet. Suggestions anyone? What are "normal" readings supposed to be?

When I test it is on the sides of my fingers, not right on the finger print area, nope. Usually the index middle or ring fingers, either hand.

I am testing just below my thumb in the meaty section that doesn't hurt much. Is anyone else testing there, too? I'm not sure I'm doing this right because my numbers don't change much between morning and evening and don't show much difference between when I eat right (the last few days, excluding Easter) and when I overeat including sweets (Easter dinner.) I'd better call the diabetes clinic and ask.
