Try oatmeal, plain or with cinnamon and nuts. An artificial sweetener to sweeten things up but use in moderation; Stevia, Stevita, Succralose.
"Can somebody explain to me why my morning(bbkfast) glucose levels fluctuate like they appear to be doing." You kept your glucose levels a secret. "Or are my sugar levels ok" You kept this a secret too. "I try to stay away from bad carbs, sugars and starches. I read labels very carefully to avoid pitfalls." That's an attaboy, gus. But are you also keeping a normal weight and doing moderate exercise daily? These help to lower your glucose level.
In going for my glucose test tomorrow and I was wondering if it was OK to eat before the test or not. I have heard it was ok but I have also heard that you shouldn't because it will mess the test up. What should I do?
fasting, two hours after breakfast, 2 after lunch, 2 after dinner. That way you can get a sampling of where you're at different times of day. Also testing two hours after meals is a good way of seeing how different foods affect your blood glucose and knowing then what is good and not so good for you to eat. So bottom line is there is no absolute time you have to test but it does provide you with important information about managing your diabetes.
Target Blood Glucose levels: BEFORE BREAKFAST 5.0 – 7.2 mmol/l AFTER BREAKFAST <10.0 mmol/l AFTER LUNCH <10.0 mmol/l AFTER DINNER <10.
Took glipizide before breakfast after not taking it for four days. Believe this is why I had a low reading after breakfast this morning.
Two hours after eating breakfast my glucose levels were 161. Right after a brisk 1 hour walk they were 104. I ate a small sandwich and checked (2) hours after eating. My glucose wat 181. What's up with this. Right now my waking numbers average about 150. Do these seem right?
If your blood glucose was 61 an hour or two after breakfast, especially if your breakfast was fairly high carb (such as cereal, bread, etc) you might have a specific type of hypoglycemia called reactive hypoglycemia which is people who have low blood sugar after a meal high in carbs. I would suggest seeing your doctor and getting tested to see what type of hypoglycemia you have and to make sure you aren't pre-diabetes.
53 after breakfast and it showed 67BG. Took 2 glucose tabs and it showed 74BG @10:13.
FBS of 130 would already make him diabetic. Does he get high blood sugars after eating? Time to test is 2 hours after the start of a meal. Truly normal numbers are likely around 100, but medical profession say that < 120 is considered normal. A1C of 6.2 is already close to diabetic. THey say 6.3 is the cutoff for diabetes. However, optimal A1C should be < 5.0. For me I find I can reduce the dawn effect, by limiting how many carbs I eat.
19 after breakfast and it showed 60BG Took 2 glucose tabs and it showed 68BG @ 10:36 took 1 tab and 125 grams of V8 juice and it showed 104 @10:42
My blood glucose was 95 after an overnight fast. I ate a bowl of Fiber One cereal for breakfast, and 70 minutes afterward my glucose was up to 146. Then three hours later it was 118. Is this prediabetic?
My son(12)Type 1, likes to eat cereal for breakfast. But each time his B/S is very high afterwards (300-400). We have tried several types of cereals. Moms: What type of breakfast food do you give your diabetic kids? Also, my son has a snack at 9 pm each night, if your child does this also, what are some snacks you are using? I try for a carb and a protien, ie. slice of bread & slice of ham. Thanks for all the advise. Great site.
Glucose is sugar. They're testing how your body digests sugar during pregnancy.
For a week I was checking blood sugar with the monitor when I first woke up and before I ate, and two hours after breakfast, lunch and dinner. I was also given a diet of things I can and cannot have. I'm allowed 3 snacks and B, L, & D. I can't eat more than 30 carbs per meal. And I have to keep a log of the food I eat and fax over my logs with my food eaten and the blood glucose levels. Sometimes the GD can be controlled with diet.
My two cents worth is that for a few weeks you should perform intensive testing and log all your foods, and meds, taking an effort to each a balanced small meal with a specified number of calories. Take sugar levels upon awakening, before breakfast, two hours after breakfast. Before eating lunch and two hours after eating lunch. Before supper and two hours after eating supper. And at bedtime. Experiment a bit and fast during the morning.
I would recommend recording your blood sugar levels fasting, and 1 hour after you eat and speaking about it with your doctor. The fasting level that you mention in your question is elevated. You want to speak with your doctor soon, so that you can get your sugars regulated either by diet and exercise or medications if that is what is recommended. It also might be helpful to keep a food journal until you see your doctor.
Lean proteins (fish, chicken, etc.) nuts, or a small salad maybe. I know those aren't really breakfast friendly, LOL. Stay away from sugary items, including fruit (they have natural sugars) and starchy foods (bread, pasta, potatoes, etc.) because the body will process it into sugar. These foods can elevate your sugar levels in your blood which may cause your test results to be elevated, although some people don't fast at all and their results come back fine.
I took mine last month and was told to not eat anything at all and to only have water. I ate after my test and it felt like I didn't eat for days, the food tasted that good.
A random glucose test is not a glucose tolerance test. A random glucose test is just that. They measure your blood glucose at just any time when you're eating normal meals. This does not qualify as a screening for Gestational Diabetes. Depending on how long after your last meal and what you ate, the results could be normal, even if your blood sugar is not.
You should have blood drawn and hour after you drink some sugary liquid, I suggest you fast, that's what I was told. I had a small sip of water before but that's it.
Maybe I can have breakfast then and go to my blood test at 12:00 this way I am safe. And will ask my doctor to make sure too. Thanks for your response I was wondering about that.
Just don't eat rite b4 it. Especially anythin sugary cuz ull be drinkin a thing of sugar. Then ull wait an hour. They'll tell u if u feel sick or if u throw up within that hour, u failed nd will hav to do a 3 hour one. They'll draw ur blood b4 & after.
I failed my first one because my dr didn't tell me I was goin to have a glucose test that day and I ate a McDonald's breakfast with an orange juice and sugar straws lol I failed horribly and had to come back for the three hour test! I have a great dr now and she told me in advance so getting to the normal experience! I've taken this test with my 2nd and 3rd pregnancies already and I just found that both times it made me "crash" a few hours later.
I have my glucose test tomorrow and I am super nervous! I LOVE my sweets, and espically being pregnant that's all I crave is sweets! However the receptionist at my OB office gave me my drink and gave me instructions to eat a normal breakfast, drink the drink 30 minutes before my appointment. When I've talked to so e other people they have said eating before you go could potentially make you fail the test.
00am so the nurse told me not to have any breakfast, but then when I drank the stuff I still had to wait an hour before i was able to eat anything. They drew my blood an hour right after I drank it. But with my first daughter they never told me don't eat anything and it came back high, so I had to do the 3 hour test and I pass that one. I'm almost 26 weeks, but some doctors do it at a later time or earlier. It varies with each doctor.
