Stress can cause higher numbers too, so try some meditation or deep breathing... and drink more water! Being adequately hydrated helps the body excrete excess sugar in the blood... but definitely keep in touch with your medical team.
And use the trackers here, they really do help me know if I'm following my program. Sometimes, I think I am but tracking carefully can reveal surprises in my own behaviour...

Might help with you too... who knows?...

"The real secret of success is enthusiasm..." thanks, Walter P. Chrysler. I believe it. That's what I want in my life--to give my imagination a chance, to live with energy and enthusiasm!
P.S. I looked up enthusiasm, and it says the root words mean God within... interesting...!

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 one mome

Don't give up on yourself. It's a lifestyle change, but worth it to get off meds and have sugars controlled.

Love is the root of all things good in life.

I have been a Sparker for some time....but today was that day I have dreaded. My doctor told me last year that I was prediabetic...diet controlled. These last few months I didn't exercise regularly and my A1C is 7.0. Also my blood pressure was up and cholesterol as well. I guess it is meds for me which is what I was trying to avoid. I am waiting to see what the meds are. I am going to get back in the swing of things. I appreciate all the help I can get!
