I should have taken my glucophage before dinner.
I overslept was in a rush and forgot to take my medication this morning, I take 30mg actos and 20mg of glipzide ER, as well as 10mg of Byetta at lunch and dinner. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> now is 417. Is there a way to get it down fast but safely. I am at work and because of the high sugar am really tired. Any help would be great.
I m Type-1 diabetic from last 15 years and my blood sugar level used to be under control but from last 2 Weeks, my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> level fluctuates a lot. Fasting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> is nearly around 300 : before dinner around 500 and after dinner its around 400.There is no change in my diet,exercise or my daily routine pattern. Even I take short acting insulin(novorapid) when my sugar level goes beyond 300 but it doesn't make much difference. I m really worried.
Your morning glucose levels indicate type 2 diabetes. Try not to eat starchy foods or foods loaded with carbohydrates at night. They turn into sugar after digestion. And no late snacking. The "throughout the day" has no meaning unless they were 2-3 hours after a meal. The sometimes of "192, 263" are high and entering the dangerously high zone. The times to test are mornings before breakfast, before each lunch and dinner meals and 2-3 hours after each meal.
- C-peptide and Fasting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> (FBS) - if c-peptide is low and FBS is high would indicate possible lack of insulin production. Further testing for antibodies should be done (to determine type 1 or 2 diabetes). - if c-peptide is high and FBS is high would tend to indicate type 2 diabetes.
I checked my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> of 196mg/dL right after my dinner (big one) at 6:30PM. I was really nervous because I had never done that before and was just curious. Then I checked one hour later at 7:30PM and it went down to 115mg/dL. I then checked again before bedtime at 11PM and it was 97mg/dL (after one hour working out). This morning I checked at 6AM and it was 78mg/dL. My question: is it normal that the blood sugar is 196mg/dL right after meal?
I was wondering about the reactive hypoglycemia and if that's what it could be. This lower <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> after eating didn't start until my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> sugars were under the normal limits all throughout the day. I realize it wasn't that low but it was lower than what I was used to. Also, I was wondering if you might know about normal insulin levels? She checked my insulin level and it was 6, she said 0-25 was normal???
Had a CapriSun before breakfast on Sat. also had watermelon after dinner and some graham crackers. Also a lot of stress on Fri/Sat because of my sleep study.
At dinner I ate lasagna, salad, sweet tea. Anyway 30-45 minutes after dinner, my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> was 118. Is this normal or does it seem kind of high? At the doctor last year fasting it was 91. Also, I have been suffereing from severe fatigue after my long runs and have to basically sit down for the rest of the day which I hate. I am going to start to check my blood sugar after these runs to see what it is. I eat alot after the long runs but it does not seem to help.
Today 6/31 I checked my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> using my aunt's meter and it was over 400. This was about 2 hours after dinner. I'm not currently being treated for diabetes. About a month ago I started having severe dry mouth but no other symptoms. I'm currently on vacation and several states away from my doctor. Can I wait a week to see her or should I get treatment right away?
Now that I have type II, what are the ranges to aim for for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> levels for fasting and then for 2 hours after a meal? Right now, I'm testing about 100 to 110 in the morning and about 110 to 130 after meals. If I forget to take my metformin at night, my fasting level is usually around 120 to 130. But, with the medicine it is 100 to 110 fasting. Is this good? Is it supposed to be under 90? Or can I not aim for that goal since I'm a diabetic and is it unrealistic?
Humalog is your fast acting insulin and should prevent your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> rising high after you eat. Humalog can also be used to 'correct' blood sugars that are too hihg. You need to have a carb;Insulin ratio worked out. This is usually worked out by trial and error and is indivicual. Often people start off with a ratio of 1 unit of Humalog to 20 g of carbs and then adjust from there.

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?
That little test he does apparently keeps showing an average <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> of 130 when I know that to be untrue. I have a glucometer and check my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> regularly throughout the day. I've even shown him my meter's log and he still won't believe me about my spikes and crashes. He believes I'm just overly worried and that it's all in my head. What do I do?
Recently I have started playing tennis, But immediately after my playing my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> level is high and I feel exterme irritation on my feet, kind of tingling feel....especialy near the fingers. what wud be the cause...
High amounts of carbohydrate foods at one meal tend to get people tried due to the increase/drop of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> levels in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span>. Maybe look at periods of stress in your job due to certain timetables, such as an accountant very busy at the beginning of a year due to income tax time, etc. Our bodies get fatigued from high amounts of stress. If all above are no, then suggest seeing your Doctor to be checked. Thank you for your question.
Okay I read that if you go without treating your GD your baby could make insulin for you and the baby which is bad for baby. Well I've been doing the diet and working out and my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> have been good. Well I ate a pizza today and went walking (I do that after lunch and dinner) and I checked my sugar two hours later and my sugar was at 99. Well I did some house work and ate the last peice of pizza and went walking again and when I got home and finished clean my blood sugar was 69.
Well basically my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> for the past 24 hours has been really high. average of 300 till 10pm last night, then it rose to 574. At 1A.M. it dropped to 416 (I was asleep until then). I changed out at this time. I then stayed up till 7a.m trying to drop my blood glucose levels. At 2:45A.M it dropped to 306. This is when my blood sugar began to rise again. At 3:50 it rose to 320, then 4:50 it rose to 438, it slightly dropped to 417 at 5:51 A.M, then soared to 537 at 6:56 A.M.
yeah, avoid high-carb meals, including breaded meats, high-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> marinades, and high-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> desserts. And for the love of yourself, eat some leafy veggies, up your fiber intake, and seriously, see a nutritionist for a consult about how to eat to help manage all your current medical conditions and help avoid developing diabetes.
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.

When you say you have frequent urination, do you mean you urinate excessive amounts of urine each time or you just need to make frequent trips to the bathroom, maybe only urinating smaller amounts each time? Your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> sugars sound pretty good to me. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> in the 80's is perfect - so you were in the 70's and low 90's - it doesn't scream diabetes. And you said you are "somewhat thirsty". Another question: How long have you been in this country?
I think it is impossible for 2 cups of white coffee without <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> can raise the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> so much! Just too scare to do another <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> glucose test. Any one has those experience or come across those symptoms? Could some one give me an idea what should I do next?
What your brother is experiencing is called hyperglucemia, it is in fact HIGH <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span>, not low. If he drank a bottle of water in one gulp, this is a sign of high blood sugar since he is probably very dehydrated to be able to drink it so quickly. Usually people with extremely high blood sugar become slightly delluded/lose touch with reality.

I've had other cortisone shots (shoulders, hips) in my life before and the blood sugar increase only stayed a few days. This time my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span> is still high after the injection and doesn't want to budge. My fasting runs about 188 or so. I take 15 mg of Actos. I have type 2, and I'm a female in late 50's. My doc doesn't want to increase the Actos yet. My question is..is this level 188-200 fasting high? What should I eat for breakfast with this blood sugar level?
