I have had a little stress. My friend of 30 years was here for a visit and she only called once and when we meet up I found she was a person I don't really care to be around anymore. Either she changed or me. My sisters said she was the same as always. loud and self centered and I was just seeing it now. My husband had surgery and he was having a couple of issues. My numbers after exercise and before lunch are in the 80's. I will check it after my snack this evening before bed. Thanks for listening and helping!

I can understand that frustration...

Did you know that it can change on you, and you don't have to do ANYTHING different? Maybe that's what is going on. I had something like this happen to me, no new meds or anything--and MUCH higher numbers... and was told that even when you do everything right, things can still go wrong! Your body is a living environment that is in a constant state of change... It may not make you happy, but isn't at a dangerous point yet if you're not hitting over 120 on the post-prandial readings.

Maybe you're having a minor issue with systemic inflammation and you need more antioxidants in your diet... maybe you are fighting off an infection you aren't aware of... it may even just be that your body has gotten too used to your routine and you need to shake things up a little with maybe a small increase in your activity level--or some new, fun physical hobby... Go dancing or play hopscotch in the park! LOL

Have you tried meditating, or qi gong or tai chi or yoga, for relaxation? Even a little stress can cause those numbers to creep up...

But they really are not that high. You're not crashing at this point, so it's a good point at which to try changes, actually.

Go for it, girl! Have some fun trying a few new things and let us know what happens.

AND... if you are still concerned, call your doctor's office. A chat with his/her nurse may dispel any lingering issues without the cost of a visit...

Yes, I start my meds in June so its been the time peroid. I just am frustrated because my first A1C was 7.3 the next one was 5.3 and I want to keep it down. I am trying to do what I can, I just get discouraged that my morning bs is over 100. It was in the 90's.

Different doctors have different ideas about where they want your numbers specifically to be, but every one pretty much agrees that 80-120 is the "NORM"--and EVERYTHING you've mentioned is within that normal range. You're doing fine!

Besides, you still haven't given it the three to eight weeks it needs to level off, have you... there is a reason why the doctor sets a follow-up visit when you start a new medication. Wait for it and just record what happens in the meantime... unless of course it goes crazy an starts hitting 150 or more--then just call the doctor and let him/her make whatever adjustments need to be made.

Patience is a virtue--or so I've been told! LOL

I'm not good at the waiting part myself, but you are wasting SO much energy on this WORRYING, and THAT is only going to drive up your numbers!

Give yourself a lecture or mark that eight weeks on your calendar as a time to start worrying, go do some fun stuff to distract yourself, or whatever else it is that you do for yourself to relax during the interim--and LET IT GO!

BS this morning was 108, I am getting so discouraged! I am not eating sweets or very few, exercise everyday for at least 40 min, watching what I eat for the most part. Before I started this chol med it was in the 90's in the a.m. now won't go below a 100.

One time I went to the lab, it was a 9 1/2 hours fast and the tech did not want to take my blood. She said I had to fast for 12 hours. I insisted that 9 hours was adequate for a diabetic.

The next time I went to the same lab, (different tech) I was asked if I was a diabetic and she said ok and wrote it down.

My doc says it is ok for me to do my chol on a 9 hour fast. It all depends on your circumstances. My doc now writes on the top of the req "9 hours fast" so they know at the lab and won't argue with me........

I think it just depends... partly on the doctor, and partly on the lab you go to. Mine asks me when I last ate and just writes that down with the current time...

For home measurements, it's whenever you first get up in the morning, BEFORE any activities.
emoticon I'm embarrassed...

I had a bad morning, I was feeling sick from the heat and didn't do my evening check list, I just laid down for a minute and fell asleep... and so I forgot to take my BP and pain meds last night and WHOA!
emoticon
That kind of thing ALWAYS has the effect of boosting numbers... pain and stress, y'know? 137, and my BP was 159/89... yikes.

I'm better now--though it will take a full 24hr cycle to get completely back on track! LOL

No, I meant I test this morning at 6:30 a.m. so it wasn't a 10 or 12 hours without food or beverage. I had popcorn at 8.p.m. the night before along with all the other stuff I ate that day before! I would talk with my primary about that, it doesn't sound right to have chol. almost not there at all.

Linda, did you mean to say you ate at 8AM? As for the cholesterol meds I was put on Simvastin 40 mgm when I was diagnosed in June even though my lipid profile was in the lower end of the normal range. My cardiologist repeated the lipid profile at the end of July and my cholesterol was almost non existent but he still kept me on the Simvastin and cut it down to 20 mgm daily. I understand the concept of being on it for prevention but I am wondering if it is doing more harm than good by lowering it too much. It doesn't seem like it affected my BSs. Those went up when my endocrinologist took me off Glipizide.

the weather (rain and long periods of little or no sun) affects my MOOD so I guess when I am depressed, my sugars spike. And yes, when the rain is coming, I am in more pain, and that affects my mood.......

I can't say I've noticed weather affecting my blood sugar-- except indirectly maybe... You see, with fibromyalgia... can you say "built in barometer"? LOL

The barometric pressure drops, my pain level spikes... and when pain goes up, so do blood glucose levels!

It's quite possible if you have an inflammatory disease in addition to the diabetes (which, folks, IS an inflammatory disease) you could easily have the same problem... so sure, why not! LOL

Only just like the rest of things, it's a bit different for each of us...

Just Wondering...
Has anyone looked at the weather (pressure) and see how it effects our BS?
I wonder if low or high barometer does anything to raise or lower our BS.
This has been a stormy week for us (low pressure) and my numbers are lower than normal.

I have been taking Crestor for 2 or 3 years and have never noticed any cramping.

A number of years ago, I tried metamucil for a week or so, it actualy made me constipated. OOOH the pain! My sis takes it and she says it makes her more regular, does not get the bouts of dia..... (TMI)

I stopped taking it and after my system was "cleaned out", I felt much better.

I have never tried benefibre. I know I need more fibre in my diet but one experience has scared me silly.

I am on simvastatin and haven't seen a change in my BS. Both my PCP and endocrinologist said they would like me to stay on a low dose no matter how good my cholesterol numbers are because of the elevated risk of heart disease for diabetes patients.
I have heard of people having terrible cramping problems with Lipitor, but not the simvastatin generic.

You're definitely right about starting small and working up to a normal dose... ANY fiber supplement can cause cramping if your body hasn't had time to adjust.

As for the metamucil, I tried that--ONCE-- and I tried the pill kind too. I couldn't even swallow them! Ever watched a cat coughing up a hairball? LOL

I have a specific problem though, with very dry mucous membranes, and it caused all kinds of other issues as well--which I don't have with the benefiber.

I only take it with food as a rule-- and only take a half dose at a time, which would be only one teaspoon-- but my daily total is the same as the regular dose, because I take it five or six times a day with my 'mini-meals'...

You just have to give it a try, start with a little at a time, and find out how much works for you. Just like most things in life, huh?... LOL

No expert but according to the package 2 tsp of benefiber. It is tasteless and that is a good thing. only 15 calories and 4 carbs. could possible counted as a freebie.

I too take simvastatin for cholesterol but I don't know how it effects my BS#'s because I was already taking when I was diagnosed with diabetes.
My nutritionist also said to add benefiber to my diet. I need to start doing this. How much is good to start with. I can't remember what she said but you should probably start at a low amount and then increase I would think.
Any help would be appreciated.

I have been on statins (simvastatin) and have been able to cut my dose. I aim to be off of it wioth my next check up.

I can vouch that more fiber in the diet really works. I happen to use Metamucil (which is psyllium) now. I do sometimes use Benefiber (which is inulin) and that would cause me GI troubles, whereas the Metamucil doesn't. I get it in size ginormous @ Costco, so it is reasonably economic for me to use. I have tried to get more fiber with fruits and veggies vs. the Metamucil as well. I prefer more natural ways to "keep the GI track happy!" (and the cholesterol.)

Good luck. Oh, and I can't say I really noticed a difference in my sugar #'s being on a statin for me. Just my experience.

I couldn't handle the statins--MAJOR cramping issues, and I already have a problem that way from fibromyalgia! LOL We'd tried just about everything, and I DO take Lovaza (a fish-oil based medication) as well, but it's not enough on its own... he was talking about one last attempt, with a chemical cholesterol binder of some type. Kind of freaked me out, with my digestive problems, I'm telling you! LOL

But...

My gastroenterologist prescribed Benefiber for a totally unrelated issue--and my cholesterol dropped almost a hundred points in a matter of about a six weeks!... As an added benefit, my A1C dropped a bit too... My endocrinologist was ecstatic! LOL

Between my new physical therapy routine, and the Benefiber, I may actually have to reduce my insulin doses--I'm having a bit of an issue NOW with low blood sugar! LOL

A large bottle of Benefiber is about $20, and I've been using this one I have for two whole months so far--I'm guessing, but I think I have enough left for another three or four weeks or so before I have to open the next bottle. That's less than $8 for a month's supply--cheaper than the $300 my insurance paid for the statins I couldn't tolerate! LOL

AND, no nasty side effects!... unless you count spending a little more time in the bathroom! LOL

I even FEEL better, instead of having that stuff make me sick and painful!... I don't know why more people don't know this--especially doctors!

It's available OTC, but I did have the doctor write me a prescription so I don't have to pay sales tax and even though it isn't on my insurance formulary, it counts toward my deductible...


Maybe, if you talk to your doctor, he/she will let you try this, and you won't have to get stressed over using the statins--and no worries about what it's doing to you! LOL

Either way, good luck!

"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

Life comes in specific increments, which we receive as a gift of one moment at a time. That's why it's called t
