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.
But when the lady at the front desk went over the instructions she said I can eat a regular breakfast and all that I just can't eat or drink after I take it till my app is over..
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.
53 after breakfast and it showed 67BG. Took 2 glucose tabs and it showed 74BG @10:13.
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?
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
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.
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.
When I did my test, I was not aloud to eat after 10pm the night before and only a sip of water I was not aloud to have and sugar 3 days prior, and when I went in they took 3 tubes of blood then they gave me the glucose drink to drink within 5min , then waited 1hr then took more blood, then waited another hour and took the third sample of blood.
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.
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?
Hi ladies. Have any of you been required to do a 1st trimester blood glucose 1hr screening? Because of my age (36) and being overweight (224lbs at 5'5") I have been ordered to take a first trimester blood glucose test to check for diabetes early. I cannot tell you how awful it is to be here, empty stomach fasting, and have to drink that syrupy stuff when I'm still in the throws of 1st trimester nausea. Trying not to throw up. But already dizzy.
It may make you nauseous. You will pee in a cup and have blood taken after the one hour. Stay away from anything sugary before you get the test done as it can affect results. Some people do better on an empty stomach and some don't. If you pass no further testing gets done. If you fail, you will have to go back for the 3 hour test.
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.
I had to wait 2 hr , first they took blood than I had the drink 1 hr later they took blood again than I had to wait another hour and they took some more blood
but i didn't feel all them symptoms til I saw my doc so as soon as I stood up to go into the other room to give my blood I felt better after I gave my blood I went into the bathroom and ( TMI ) i pooped like it was no business lol ..
Omg , they told me after midnight ugh
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.
Did anyone else feel light headed and weak after taking the 1 hour glucose test?
Going in for my glucose test & I'm just really hoping I pass. All I ate for breakfast was some plain cheerios.
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.
