Take blood sugar reading one hour every hour one day, or one weekend if you can. It is important to see how your sugar going within day. When you take reading two hours after meal you have nothing to say about your diabetes. What happened three hours after meal? Did sugar go down? Did it still o up?
Try to find out how it is going with your sugar. After meal take readings as many as you can. one hour after meal, two hour after meal, three our after meal, and so on. See when your sugar started to get down. What was highest reading?
Try to avoid diuretics. Usually all MD Rx diuretics, water pills. It is very bad medicine for diabetics. Also it leads to kidney failure and edema.
If you need to take medicine then take insulin, long acting type of insulin. I take Lantus solo star. I tried Toujeo, and it is not my type of insulin. When it is early you stated dose of insulin would be small.
Good luck.

Have you seen a nutritionist or diabetic educator yet? That's a good first step.

Make sure your testing your blood sugars before meals and 2 hrs. after to get a feel for the trend of your sugars AND keep a food log. That'll help you determine the foods you need to avoid.

For sure, limit your carbs, especially the complex carbs.

Research all you can!

Are you on a medication? IF so, definitely watch your sugars.

And remember the best control of diabetes includes: managing your nutrition and exercise, and meds if needed.

Good luck and stay connected.

Love is the root of all things good in life.

I'm new to the board. I'm pre- diabetic and taking it very seriously. I had gestational diabetes with my youngest daughter so I thought I would have a problem later on. I'm open to any and all advise!!!!
