Well I found out the next day my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> pressure was high. It has been fine since. But this morning I got really lightheaded and a headache all of a sudden(which I know is normal in pregnancy) but I checked my blood pressure again to see if that was it, and it was perfect. So I checked my bloodsugar and it was 79, I had just had a fruit smoothie. The medical assistant at work told me it was low, and then another told me it was slightly low. My question is does anyone know what it should be?
I am a type II diabetic and I would like to know what is considered a "good" bloodsugar reading for me when I test at different times of the day....before meals, after meals, fasting in the morning, at bedtime and other random times during the day.
Could he be running high at night for his average to be up? I also know that at times he does check his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> before bedtime and it's in the 60's. Is there anything he can do to avoid going on oral agents and insulin? Also, what do you think about cinnamon and other herbs?
Are you on a restricted diet? I'm on a high protein/high fat diet (Atkins revised diet). It's working for me to drop glucose and pounds. I hate working out so I go to low impact classes which are actually fun.
Any sustained bloodsugars over 140 are when complications begin. So if the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> spikes up that high and comes right back down it isn't as bad as if it stays there for awhile, but it would be better not to get that high altogether. But it really doesn't make sense that your bloodsugar would be that high right after eating. It usually takes awhile to reach its highest point which is why we are told to test at 2 hours (though some people hit their peak a bit sooner).
My doctor discourages blood glucose testings -- says that's only necessary if I were on insulin. However, I will occasionally check my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> -- maybe once or twice a month or if I'm not feeling well.
I checked it on Sunday and found it was running somewhat high. Just for the heck of it, I checked it when I went to bed and it was 336 around 10 p.m. I happened to wake up at 3 a.m. to use the restroom and thought I would check it again since it was kind of high when I went to bed.
) I ran so high for so long that I actually felt sick and went through withdrawals when I tried to get them back under control. NOw I'm doing better, but this last wek I started running too high again and the doctor doesn't know what else to do for me. We increased my pill and are still waiting on the new insulin, but if those don't work then I have to go to an endocrinologist for special assistance.
I'm not sure why her doctors are letting her go on with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> that high and out of control. Perhaps because they feel the tumor is the problem and they are treating that? Perhaps she should see an endocrinologist. Yes, insulin would help her bloodsugar and sounds like an option since the oral meds are not touching it. As for the different results on the meter, meters do have a 20% variation. I would suggest forgetting the three tests and just take it as its reading indicates.
I got down to 142-144 and thought I was doing pretty well, but my cholesterol and triglycerides were still high. Moderately high<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> pressure, etc. So, last December my nurse practitioner asked if I would be interested in trying a diet to curb inflammatory disease. ( I have MS, asthma, arthritis. Diabetes would be considered an inflammatory disease as well.) I thought I could give it a whirl! Well, I've been on it now 10 months and am down to 120 and a size 2! I feel great!
