Blood Sugar

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

So hubby is testing his blood sugar twice a day. Mornings it's in the 140's mostly. Last night it was 201. He was not a happy camper. But I reminded him...this was like 20 mins after he had eaten an Drumstick ice Cream cone. I'm sure that if he had taken it before that (this was like 2 hrs after dinner) it wouldn't have been that high. We're going to work on his diet. As in what he eats. He took the fun size Almond Joys and Mounds out of his lunch bag this morning. And the beef jerky. Plus he's dropping the cup of coffee (with 4 tbs of Almond Joy creamer in it) that he's been drinking on the way to work and only going to have his Starbucks. he's also stopped getting the extra pump of White Chocolate mocha in it. Baby steps...baby steps! emoticon

OH and I took my blood sugar last night too...just to see what it was. Mine was 108. Don't know if that's good or not. emoticon

So today has been busy for me at work. I have a lot to do this week. Next week I'll be on DTO for 4 days, then Fri (the 28th) is a paid Holiday for me. Karry, Nick, and the kids will be here sometime late Friday. We can't wait for them to get here! They have been limiting Malia's sugar (she so hyper when she's over sugared!) and it seems to be working, but I told Karry...we are going to get cupcakes at least once while they are down here. Grandma needs to spoil them some! emoticon

Eating last night was OK. We had rib eye steaks and a baked tater. No dessert for me. I'm weight stuff now, since I'm logging (for now) for two of us. Tonight I'll do something with hamburger. emoticon

I skipped my workout at lunch today. Tomorrow is Jason's (my son) birthday. I had gotten him a card and a gift card, but can't remember where I piy the darn card! So I had to run to Wally at lunch to get another one, then get it into the office mail this afternoon. He'll get it on Fri I bet. emoticon

So that's it...just 3 more days until vacation and grand-kid time!

    108 in the evening after dinner? That's really good. Arn does the same thing Chuck did. He'll watch TV after supper then have a snack and THEN take his blood sugar. He can't regulate his insulin that way. But no matter how many times I tell him he just ignores me! did the doc put Chuck on any meds? (Onward and upward! Literally!)

    Diet is an amazingly powerful thing. It can make or break whether your sugars are high. Last year I was able to beat back my diabetes with diet and exercise alone. I am now in the normal blood sugar range. Just sayin, it can be done. (I had to severely limit carbs to make it work.) Good luck to both of you. Glenn

    Usually, you test your blood sugar 2 hours after every meal. If you and your husband are healthy and under 50 years old, it should be less than 140 mg/dL. A fasting blood sugar (your morning sugar reading) should be less than 110 mg/dL. Source: http://diabetes.webmd.com/blood-glu

    I have been tracking my blood sugar, because the dr said that I have gestational diabetes and it has been eye opening. I don't think I actually have gestational diabetes, because I was only over the 140 mark after 2 meals the last 5 days and I check after every meal.
