Congrats JC!
Got my results back yesterday 9.6 at least it's NOT 9.8 like it was last year! Getting Metformin back and he wants me to use a new tester. So I guess I am back to placing a strip for EACH test instead of my wheel that I have been using. But for now he did order new stuff for the Breeze 2 that I HAVE. Sugars still high, but as soon as the Metformin gets into the system (AFTER I am able to pick up!) it should start going down.

Well went to my doctor. She took me off of my blood pressure medicine! But she upped my metformin...she noticed I was taking only a 1/2 dose and wanted to bump it up to a full dose. I dont have to see her for another 3 months. She did get my A1C tested, so we will see what the results are in a couple of weeks! My weight lower since I first went, but not by much...about 10 pounds. Anyways, things are starting to look up now.
Thank you and God Bless!

My BS was considerably lower this morning. It was 156. I know that is still high but I am still trying to get it down. Tomorrow is my appointment and I will let you know what the doctor says about my BS and what she says about my A1C. I know it was critical when I first went, but I just keep praying it gets lower.
God Bless!

I don't have problems with the cookies and chips... for me, it's the bread! Oh my! LOL

I HAVE found, though, that just not eating that sweet stuff really curbed my appetite for it. Odd, but on the rare occasions that I indulge (birthday cake, a 2" square...) it seems SICKENINGLY sweet! Yuck! I wouldn't have believed it if it hadn't happened to me! LOL

You can do this... and I think once you're used to the job routines, that will help with the energy level... as will keeping up your regular routine.

Well,
I have 1 job that has me on my feet the whole time...and when I do get a break we have to stand up through it and I dont really have time away from the front. And my 2nd job is a sit down job except I do walk between classes. I dont get much of a break from either job. Bad thing is, I have a doctors appointment on Wednesday and I dont know what to do before then. I eat plenty throughout the day, and I try not to eat a meal after 7pm...dont mean I wont eat some unsalted crackers or what not before going to bed. I do drink lots of water, even have some by my bed...but that is mainly because one of my meds gives my throat a tickle most of the time. I was going to talk to my doctor about changing one of them anyways, but my goal is to not get on insulin at all. I believe in the power of healing, and so I know God will heal me at some point. I try not to eat sweets, but one of my jobs is at Subway and they have cookies and chips there...I am trying to not give in but its hard when I am a sweetaholic, and a carbaholic. I havent had much energy to exercise since last Monday as well. HELP!!!! lol.
God Bless!
Amy

One new job + one new job= major stress. You need to de-stress! LOL

Most jobs allow you breaks, it IS the law... use that time to go for a brisk walk. Make an appointment with yourself at LEAST three times a week to do that workout, maybe in the evenings?...

IF the jobs require a lot of sitting or sedentary work, you may need to consult with a nutrition specialist to re-vamp your food intake... but exercise is better!

And, you may need to consider a bedtime snack, no more than about 15 grams of carbs and a small portion of protein should do it... you may be suffering from that Simogyi Effect, aka 'dawn phenomenon'...

And the old stand-by: Drink more water. It helps your kidneys flush out the excess sugar...

Try this stuff for a few weeks, and if it doesn't help, talk to your doctor about medication dosage changes...

Good luck-- and emoticon on the new work!

I dont know what is happening, but my resting BS keeps getting higher. I dont know if starting 2 jobs pretty much in 2 days last week did that...but it keeps getting higher. Today was in the 180s. I am not sure what to do, because I really need these jobs. I have been eating right, but I also havent really had time to really exercise since Monday of last week. Any suggestions on helping me lower my sugars?
Thank you and God Bless!

Went to the Doc Friday, had ALL tests done. Should hear back soon about when he wants me to come back in and hoping that he doesn't say; "You need to go back on insulin." I hated that while pregnant! He is worried about other things though. He is trying to set me up with another doc for my foot. (Apparently a mole that I never worried about has him worried along with one on my arm.) Hopefully he will go the pill route and give me the strips and everything for my tester as I am almost out. That is one reason I have been very lax about testing. Thursday I had a low sugar incident and then again later that day. I don't remember who it was that said that to get sugar back up to have a carb with a protein, but it helped.
Oh and as for my water, I got my water filled and have a Britta filter.

CPCONE, sweetie,
I know flouride is toxic--but only in large amounts... and even though about half of what you ingest accumulates in your body, it isn't enough to cause any real issues. In some places, flouride occurs naturally in the water... and people living there lived perfectly normal lives but had fewer dental problems. That's how the effects of flouride on tooth decay were discovered in the first place.

The amounts put in our drinking water are carefully regulated by the government to provide maximum protection from tooth decay without causing health problems. In some areas, the natural flouride is too high, so they remove it! They even take into account that warmer climates require a larger intake of water, and the amount is adjusted accordingly. And they've been doing that since 1945--and the 400 million people drinking it have had no significant changes in life expectancies because of the flouride in their water.

Actually, a TODDLER would have to drink TWENTY GALLONS of water in one sitting to cause any serious harm, and the water itself would cause problems before it ever got to that point!

...Though they DON'T recommend using tap water for baby formula, because infants' little systems aren't fully developed yet, and formula isn't filtered by the mother's body the way breastmilk is...

Since I drink flouridated water I don't use flouride toothpaste any more, I use Tom's of Maine--and I don't get flouride treatments at the dentist anymore, since that reduces my intake to just what is in the water. I get all the benefits without additional exposure, and so it isn't a real issue any more.

The only thing that removes the flouride is an activated charcoal filter with alumina... which is another issue entirely! LOL For me, it's the chlorine, and some of the other stuff--and the Brita works for that!

As for boiling the water to remove contaminants... that doesn't work all that well, really--at least for your concerns about flouride. You would have to collect and drink the steam! Boiling WILL get rid of any bacterial or amoebic activity, but it actually CONCENTRATES flouride. Like drying fruit makes the serving sizes smaller but more calorically dense by removing the water, you're taking water away in the steam when you boil it, but it is leaving the flouride behind. And it STILL is safe.

It's good to be cautious, so do some checking by all means, and if you want to continue to buy your water bottled, that's cool... but I'm glad you checked around on that, because a lot of bottled water brands are just tap water anyway! What would be the point? LOL

This whole issue... We certainly don't need to "borrow trouble", y'know! We all have a tendency to do that, don't we though? I think we all have enough other things to worry about!... no sense in making things harder for ourselves than they need to be, Right? LOL

It's more important to get the blood sugar things under control, since the high numbers ARE doing a LOT more damage NOW than a little bit of flouride might down the road... and that means drinking the water--with OR without the additives!

It took me some time to figure out what my body wanted in terms of lowering my sugar. After finally succeeding in lowering under 200, i found this works for me. 1/2 wheat bagel with peanut butter and a small glass of milk for breakfast. Same for lunch. and a small portioned dinner baked or grilled. I have not fried anything in my house in months. I have a water filtration system on my pipes. I drink about 32 oz of crystal light cause i hate plain water. This is what has caused my sugar to be lowered. I also take Victoza because other medication wont lower my sugar. Novolog and Levimir together didn't work. Metformin made me sick all the time. So if I am doing this wrong, oh well, it works for me and i feel great!

Kathy, filter won't get rid of the poison that my city PUTS in the water. I haven't found a filter that I can afford that takes fluoride out of water. I don't know about you , but I am NOT going to drink something that is put in rat and roach killer. I have actually looked it up, it is poison and states it is on it's bag. It has the skull and crossbone symbol with a number 6 on the front of the bags and says "NOT for human consumption" When I had a way to get to the store, I would go once a week to my local Wal-mart and get a 2 gallon container of Culligan Water. It's only 77 cents here. That would last me a week. Boil water to make tea, not the best way to get contaminates out, but it works to a point.

I repeat... get a filter, like the Brita, a pitcher, and a couple of bottles and or jars for travel. It's WORTH it!

that's what I do...

Drink plenty of water, eat more veggies and cut back on carbs--aim for around 150 grams a day for now (USE the tracker so you KNOW what you are eating--and MEASURE EVERYTHING)... and start walking for exercise every day.

My 82 year old dad walks for half an hour every day (he's better at it than I am! LOL)

That will be enough to get you started until you have a better idea of where you are...

Keep posting!
Welcome back...

Good afternoon. I feel silly cause I haven't been here in quite some time, but I have to ask a question. LOL

OK I have NO Doctor, NO meds, and almost out of testing supplies. NO Doctor will take me.
My sugars have raised their nasty head and are usually in the 300's, IF I am lucky I get a day of 200's. I am trying to drink more water, but will not drink city water. I am lucky if I can get 2 glasses a day due to that. I don't have the right foods, but try to eat as best I can with what I do have. I have problems with ANY White flour. I have HUGE stress levels and no way to unstress from them right now. To be quite truthful I have not been testing every day due to not having many supplies. While pregnant last year I was on Insulin, then taken back off after I gave birth. Was put on oral meds for a while. Was dealing very well and was taken off the oral meds and then I "Dropped" the lying scum who was my "Doc" when she isn't a Doctor but an LPN. (No, that's not the reason I dropped her.) Since then I can't get anyone to help me with the Diabetes. I have no idea how to deal with everything that is going on.

It isn't UNusual, actually. Multiple testing isn't advised as a rule, because your blood sugar readings can even be affected by the testing process.

It IS possible in this instance that you may have had some of that buttercream sauce on your finger... did you wash your hands first?... and did you test your meter's accuracy before you retested? Sometimes the calibration is off a bit, and the test solution can tell you if it's you or the meter...

Me? I stay away from Belgian waffles. They're yummy, yes. But... way too many of the wrong kind of carbs, even without the buttercream!... LOL A regular waffle is bad enough... can only have 1/4 of one!

I have a quick question. I had a late breakfast (fellow office people made belgian waffles) had one waffle, fruit and a butter cream sauce (not much). I tested at 11:15. My first number was 353, NO that cannot be right, second was 241 on a different finger, best two out of three, third test was 179. Is this usual to have a different reading on different fingers? I am kinda confused but will take the lower number :)

Thanks.

Numbers are running high this week which is strange considering I haven't changed my diet or any other significant change. Not sure but it they keep up will call the doctor, I will give it to next week.

Have a great day!!!

Is your friend under a doctor's supervision? Because if she isn't she's putting her long term health at jeopardy. Low carbs up to a point, yes. But you need food to survive, and how much is not arbitrary. It's based on your size and weight, your muscle mass, your metabolic rate and activity level... you should see if that free clinic gives you access to free diabetic education classes, you need to talk to someone about setting decent parameters for your particular situation.

Meanwhile, you can log in the nutrition tracker, and just use it for a week to see where you are--then plug into the diabetic menu here for starters until that consultation happens. Then you can customize the program for your individual needs-- and, you can increase the amount of water you drink and maintain a level of consistent exercise to help combat insulin resistance... and keep testing and testing some more, to learn what works for you.

It's surprising actually, how much you can accomplish while you're 'waiting'... LOL

Welcome aboard!

Hi,
I have type 2 and my A1Cs are high. I was wondering what all I could do to lower them faster than I have been. My sugars are way out of control. I was diagnosed when I was 21, and now I am 26. The past two years I did a bad thing and stopped taking care of my diabetes, I didnt have the health insurance or money or job to go to the doctor and so I stopped taking my medications. On top of that I didnt eat healthy. My sugars are generally in the 220s or so in the morning and my A1C was in the critical of 11.6. I was wondering what you all did to lower both of those? I have started to care for myself again, and I have noticed my serving sizes are way too large. I am trying to workout when I can, and most of the time my sugars lower when I do..not all the time though. I am going to see a free clinic in September and again in October, and need some help eating healthy again. My dads girlfriend is also diabetic and she has been on this diet of just 600 calories a day. She mainly doesnt eat anything except drinks coffee in the morning and eats a big bowl of salad for dinner. I have been thinking of doing this...but in a different way. I was thinking of eating 200 calories at each meal (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner) for a while to see if it really works. She says that people who do that, their sugars go to normal and they often times loose their diabetes....has anyone heard about this?
Thank you for reading, and God Bless!

Spilling protein is serious business, m'dear. Has your doctor referred you to a nephrologist yet? If not, you may want to ask. If there's enough damage that you're spilling protein,it's my belief that you need the expertise of a specialist.

There are a few things you can do to slow down the progression, but see your doctor about that referral and find out just where you really stand!! DON'T WAIT!

I was in stage IV before they caught mine, and talk about scary! I managed to get up to stage III with proper nutrition and exercise... though the regimen is a LOT tougher than diabetic menus--and sort of the opposite in some ways! LOL

I had some nuclear testing done last year in prep for a major surgery, and added to the things that happened this spring... well, I just started spilling protein again a few months ago, and I'm right on the borderline between stage III and stage IV. Stage V is total renal failure, and I don't want ANYONE to go there, let alone me...

Do whatever it takes to get it under control now, and let me know if there's anything else you need help with!...

I am not a doctor but my opinion is that with BGs in the numbers you mention, your A1c will rise dramatically. As you know, the A1c is a measure of your AVERAGE BG over the previous 3 months.

I understand your frustration but I also know that you can get a hold on this.

Hang in there and keep in touch.

God speed, PARISM3

The Aviva testing method of testing and tracking levels before and after meals/snacks has shown me that a banana will really have impact on my sugar levels. This morning I had a Kroger carb master yogurt and a medium banana. The sugar numbers jumped from 86 to 185 within the two hour testing window. I am building a small data base where I can record trigger foods like this.

Who woulda thot?

You got it.

Regular balanced meals at regular intervals make it easier to tell what is going on with your diabetes--AND easier to control it, since you are less likely to have as many spikes and crashes. And the bedtime snack will sometimes alleviate what is known as the "dawn phenomenon" or simogyi effect, where your glucose drops low (often while you sleep, but also whenever you skip meals) so your body overreacts because there's nothing in your system to work with, and dumps a bunch of stored glucose out from your liver... Voila, instant morning highs and meal-skipping spikes! Seems a bit backward that it should go up when you haven't eaten, but it just depends on where you catch it in your disease processes...

And you obviously already know you're going to have to find a way to work in some physical activity... you can check out the SP videos on the fitness tracker, and find something to adapt to your limitations... there's even a team on SP that does chair exercises! And if you talk to your doctor, maybe you can get a referral for some water aerobics etc and/or physical therapy, which will teach you how NOT to injure that joint of yours while you work toward better health.

I have mobility issues too, with fibromyalgia etc... if I can do it, emoticon

Have some fun on the way, and keep posting! Let us know how it goes...

I, also, have been having trouble with getting and keeping my numbers down (70-120). Most mornings my numbers are around 130-150. (yesterday morning fbs 135 - this post is after midnight). My evening numbers are usually 150-200. I read the other posts on this page. Am I understanding you to say that we need to eat about the same time everyday and make sure we have a small snack prior to bedtime? My meals are sporadic, even though I don't miss a meal (example: breakfast maybe at 7:00am or 9:00am depending on my schedule). I am taking insulin (80 units in the evening). I am, also, taking metformin (the dr. said this helps the body use the insulin better). The doctor tried to put me on other diabetes meds, but we haven't found one that is either compatible with my other meds (blood pressure and cholesterol) or that I am not allergic to. What about exercise? Any ideas? I have arthritis in my right hip which makes walking painful. I am, also, at 245lbs (I started SP at 252lbs) which makes walking more than 1/4 mile exhausting, also, have asthma (have to stop several times when trying to walk 1/4 mile). I am saddened by the fact I have let myself get into this shape. BTW I am 50 and only found out that I had diabetes in Dec 2009.

It does sound rather like some stress things going on--and I think you are the first to pinpoint it, as you made a point of mentioning it... Stress is a strange bed fellow. Even GOOD things can stress you out and cause problems!

Meditation and deep breathing and exercise... all good stress relieveres, and all good FOR you too! LOL

Been there, sweetheart, give yourself a break and learn to let go of things when you have no solutions as yet... a lesson of which I am constantly having to remind MYSELF! LOL

Well it sounds like stress and skipping meals can raise your blood sugar so I think it will do everybody good to not skip meals and learn to destress when you feel stressed out.

My blood sugars have been doing great up untill about a week ago and they are creeeping up daily and i am concerned. I know i am stressing not being able to get e-mails and too many computer problems. That has become my primary focus, fixing the computer and stressing over it. I will ask for an evaluation if my Dr is in, she is often gone these days, thats another stressor for us.
I can only have an endo with her referral so that would be nice but not an option . Here is my morning and my night time routine is exactly that the same routin almost every day. But especially once I watched the trend upwards.


Todays readings Saturday JUNE !!th
FBS 7.42 am 120 I thought that was a bad test so I repeated it
FBS it was higher. I put a new battery in the meter still as high.
I ran a meter test and was given the ok.
Then yet another FBS showed 127 I assumed after the stress of this episode.
Ate breakfast and it is now down to126 at 10.14am.
I am stressing over being unable to get to e-mails on the computer, the server says its not an issue with them. I was coleading a team and stress because I am not keeping up with it.
I have no idea where to go since last time we took in DH computer locally it was $200.00 and again $200.00 just 3 weeks later so i have no faith in our local GEEKS. Pat in Maine.

Exactly. Sorry kiddo, but you DID skip a meal. You didn't eat at bedtime, then you went on to full-out activity having skipped BREAKFAST: your body is working with a deficit first thing in the morning as it is, so it's already having to bump up the sugar--and exercise should come about twenty minutes AFTER food. Breakfast is just that: breaking a fast or starvation mode. So even if you don't feel hungry, and even if it's just a snack, you are setting the tone for the rest of the day, and your body needs something to work with or that liver function is going to kick in!

That's also why the snack at night works.

That little gray matter in your head decides it's got a bit in there so it doesn't need to freak out and dump a bunch of stored stuff into the system...

Have you TRIED it yet? The thing is, your body is just like that car or airplane you're in: it doesn't care one little bit if you're in a different time zone, it needs fuel when it needs fuel!

If I were you, I'd give retiming the food a chance before thinking about raising doses again. Chances are good you won't have to. In fact, you get the timing down for your particular body, and you may even find yourself LOWERING doses. Timing can be almost as important as portion control with this...

It's certainly worth the experiment to make your life easier, don't you think?

Kathy emoticon emoticon

P.S. While you're traveling across times zones, it may be helpful to keep some healthy snacks on hand to help with this kind of transition--so even if breakfast isn't being served yet, you're covered! It's what I do, and there are some nice older threads and articles on traveling with diabetes that you may be able to find with some great suggestions...

BTW--I didn't mean that I skipped my meal--just went to exercise BEFORE eating my breakfast. When we are traveling we usualy eat our breakfast about the same time each day (usually about 7 AM) but since we woke up early that day (still not adjusted to the 16 hr. time zone difference) and my BG # was high and it was also too early to go to breakfast, we decided to go hit the gym 1st.

I have now worked my way up to 19 units (the 1st one last night) and still not getting the hoped for morning #. It just seems strange to me that I was getting close to the # desired and then it just jumped back up despite the meds & insulin. I think I am going to have to really look at my diet more closely--although I DO try to keep the protein up and the carbs down, and try to keep the carbs ones that also include fiber...

Hi! My name's Gloria and I'm new to the team. Five years ago, I was diagnosed as "pre-diabetic." Then, my only child developed a rare kidney disease which resulted in both of her kidneys being removed and her being placed on peritoneal dialysis at home. Because of stress, lack of sleep, poor eating habits and lack of exercise, I was diagnosed with diabetes. My highest blood sugars were over 300, now with oral meds, they run between 130 to 180. What are some of the ways that members have found to lower their blood sugars? I would rather "eat my way to health" than have to take meds for the rest of my life. I need all the help and support I can get!


Plan:
Move my body (30 mins per day, 6 days per week)
Eat my freggies (3 to 5 svgs per day)
Drink my H2O (64 oz per day)

BIG TIP:

Unless you are prepping for a medical procedure, NEVER EVER EVER skip a meal. Your blood sugar can be high because of the simogyi effect, where your brain recognizes that you have no food in your system so it releases stored sugar from your liver to compensate--and with diabetes, it's always an overdose! So set yourself a meal schedule and DO NOT skip eating. If your morning fasting number is high, try a bedtime snack of 15g or so carbs and an ounce of protein: this gives your body something to work with while you're sleeping and can countermand the brain's signal to release stored sugars.

Be sure you are getting enough during the rest of the day too. Not eating enough is as bad as eating too much!

And drink more water! Good clean water helps your kidneys flush out some of the excess sugars with less damage on the way...

Click on the team name above and check out the discussions there--do some research, you'll see you aren't alone in this. A lot of us have had to deal with it!

Another note--the higher # began AFTER flying to Korea and crossing the international date line. I was told to try to figure approx. 24 hrs. after the injection at home and add an hr or 2 each night, until I get to 'bedtime' which is what I did. I don't know if that has ANYTHING to do with this, but just something I noticed...

HI--I have been with the team for awhile, but kind of AWOL. Recently my doc added insulin to my program after having 2 A1c's high. I was previously only on meds and brought those down when I lost 35 lbs. and getting within 20 lbs of my goal. Now, after 2.5 years of traveling with my husband (spending 4 weeks 'living' in hotels and eating at nearly restaurants 24/7 followed by a week at home and then another 4 weeks away, etc (including some out of the country travel) and I gained about 20 lbs. back, and am back to high A1c (It was a 10). So, doc decided insulin was appropriate and I have now been taking it for about 1 week.
My instructions were to start @ 10 units, and if after a 3 day average my morning fasting # is above 150 then add 3 units and keep following the same until it is below 150. My 1st 3 day average was 158, so I decided to only add 1 unit, because I didn't want to go too low, but after 1 day of 11, it went up to 169, so I upped it to 13 for 3 days. Then it moved it's way up to back over 200 so I began to doubt whether I was actually getting the amount I was expecting (I use a Lantus SoloStar Pen), & wondered if maybe my needle was clogged or something (my doc said I could re-use the same needle for about a week), so, last night I used a new needle and this morning it was still over 200 (226--decided to go hit the gym for a 30 min. 'walk' on the treadmill) and then re-checked--it went up more! 247, and I still had NOT eaten anything! Any comments or suggestions? Tonight i will be adding another 3 units. I'm also curious--what is an 'average' amount of insulin (I know everyone is different, but wondering what amount would be considered a 'high' amount of insulin.

BTW I am in Korea now (left a couple days after starting the insulin) and will be here for 3 more weeks). The 'plan' is to return to the doc in a month (when I get back from Korea) and look at my # again, and consider taing away the choleserol med and adding Byetta or another similar to Byetta that starts with a V. Please let me know your input!

My endo's ARNP once told me something in the early days that has stuck with me through the years: she said that you can do everything right and still have things go wrong.

Diabetes is a progressive disease. It does NOT stay static. So even if you have had great success with your treatment protocols, things can change and you basically need to consider more lifestyle changes--and possible dosage or medication changes.

Do what you know to do: drinking the water, measuring and logging the food, doing the exercises, taking your medications as prescribed-- and if you are doing 'everything right'--and you know if you are-- and it still isn't working, talk to your doctor about making the necessary dosage adjustments.

We'll be watching and waiting for the results, and the support you need is always going to be here...

Glad to find this Thread. For the last 3 weeks after over 30 years of having Diabetes, my Fasting blood sugars and sometimes before Dinner have been 200 and over. This consistent amount has never happened before. I have done everything my endo has suggested but, with no positive results. Could a lot of this be chalked up to metabolism? Oh and I am on sliding scale Insulin.

Thanks

So grateful for this thread! Sometimes I get anxious when it gets too high, so remembering to relax is good.

She's right... too high and the exercise can create even more physical issues, like burning ketones, etc.

A stroll, maybe... Drinking extra water can help flush out excess sugar. If it's stress related, you can try relaxation techniques like deep breathing and meditation... and if you are on insulin you may be able to take a physician-approved bolus--ask about a sliding scale, too, if that's the case.

If it gets too high, like you mentioned, a phone call to your doctor's office may be in order...

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." Walter P. Chrysler said it, I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!

Ralph Waldo Emerson said 'Life belongs to the energetic.' But you don't have to be frenetic and hyper--some energy is quiet and steady, like a heartbeat... and that works too! LOL

Thanks for this tread. I am looking forward to getting the ideas from others.

My best advice is to walk or do exercise. Although if blood sugar is higher than 250 then exercise was not recommended by my diabetic educator.

I will succeed by living each day with strength and intention.
