This maybe should go under MPSIMS, but since medical advise will probably get dispensed, I decided to put it here.
I’m a little worried that I’m about to get the news I’m on the cusp of diabetes. Here’s my blood sugar thread, if you want the details.
First, I have an appointment with my doctor soon-- the soonest one I could get. In the meantime, I’ve been following an 1800 calorie diabetic diet I pulled off the internet. So, I’m really just half-assing it, and even that has helped. No more blood sugar spikes. Blood sugar seems to be staying between about 83-112. That’s higher than normal for me, but from what I can pull off the web, it’s a good range.
I have reactive hypoglycemia, which is why I have a glucometer in the first place.
So tell me how you got diagnosed, and most importantly, what symptoms sent you to the doctor. Do you manage it with diet alone? oral meds? injected insulin? If you’ve always been diabetic, and inject insulin, what blood sugar numbers are your goals? what A1C?
My last A1C was about 9 months ago, and it was 4.9, but I wasn’t having spikes then; I assume it will be higher the next time it’s checked.
