I deal with higher numbers in the morning too. since a friend told me to add a healthy snack before bed, they've been lower until this morning when it was 126. Which is still lower than some I know, but for me 126 is the highest since I started snacking before bed, so disappointing. I know a lot of factors could be in play there, hopefully they'll go back down tomorrow and stay there

Hi, I'm new here. I was diagnosed after I went to get a checkup from our wellness program at work to start a new session. My Blood Sugar was 146 so they asked me to see my Dr. (I wasn't really expecting that since I had just lost 45 pounds so expected them to tell me how much healthier I was) but, hey, life is an adventure. My blood sugar is pretty much around 130 in the morning and seems to fall during the day. This morning though it was 118 - the first time it's been near what it should be in the morning. Have my appointment with Diabetes Educator today so maybe they will give me some ideas.

Hello everyone,

Since I posted this a little over a month ago my readings are still on the high side but they seem to be coming down. I started exercising after being relatively sedentary for the last few years and i have lost about 35 pounds since my diagnosis at the end of august last year and that seems to have helped a lot with my readings.

They are still high in the morning anywhere from 150-170 and then when I test two hours after eating its anywhere from 140-115 range.

My guess is that it will take some time to see what food and activity's effect my levels. My hope is as I continue to lose weight I will go into remission and I can get off the medication (Metforman) and put this behind me...provided I continue to live a healthy lifestyle.

Thanks to all of you that posted.

Hi there- I am new to this too and have had a similar experience. I started exercising 1/2 before bed and that helped bring my numbers down. I am also finding that there are certain foods that my body just doesn't tolerate that are supposed to be "OK" to eat in moderation. Anytime I eat whole grain brown rice my readings go crazy. This first month I have been testing morning, bedtime and before and after one meal everyday to try and gauge what agrees with my blood sugar processes and what makes them go crazy. However, the only thing that brings my sugars down is exercise.....

Glad you saw your doctor. Also, found out that my readings stayed higher because of caffeine so I switched to decaf coffee and teas. Oh yes, exercise can make a huge difference. Generally I exercise "at least" 20 minutres a day. I do this twice a day if I can. I use my wii and with my Walk it Out Game. My blood sugars drop after a meal (to a sane level) when I do. This is why I bought my wii.

Anyway, it's all trial and error I think as we're all different:)

Good luck!!

Ruby,

I actually had a doctor appointment a few weeks ago and I mentioned it to him. He seemed perplexed because I had lost weight and all my other numbers were good so he told me to keep monitoring for a few more weeks and we would revisit it.

I was curious if this ever happened to anyone else and how they worked through it. I haven't started exercising yet and from what I have read I guess that can effect your readings a lot.

I'm still in the very early stages of trying to figure this out and it very frustrating.

Thank you for your reply.

Wow that's really high. I'm drinking a glass of dry red wine at night and that helps me. With readings like that, I'd make an appointment with my doctor. Hope you get it sorted out.

I'm am fairly new at all of this and just started testing my bs the last couple of months but I always get a high reading in the morning before I eat. My bs will be any where from 170-200 and this is after eating very sensible the day before and eating nothing from 6:00 pm till I test the next morning.

I spoke to a dietician who suggested I eat a snack before bed and try stretching.

Any suggestions?
