In reference to my 5.5% a1c, waking up at 130mg/dl and staying there till bed time is.not.normal.
It indicates to me that something is wrong & I’m not shy about saying so.
Expecially when my total carb allotment for the day is less than 20g, and my given activity level.
In a panic, I increased my daily activity level by 5k steps before I start work at 11am, I’m a dog walker giving me a grand total of 15k steps per day (minimum)
I started having a 4oz glass of white wine at bedtime or with dinner & have been rewarded with lower fbg
Lastly, I began taking a very expensive metformin er dose of 2g/day…the expensive part is another story altogether. I used to pay 9$ for 3 month supply of 750mg met, now, my generic met at 1g tablets, the same 3 month supply is 435$ out of pocket
However, not worrying about the cost for now, as I am finally seeing encouraging, but predictable reduction in numbers.
Standard deviation today was 2 , fbg 109, never rose above 119 all day. The improvements started with the change in meds & increase in activity a couple of days ago. Not sure how long I can keep up the pace, but I have no intention of slowing down
Each day my numbers are decreasing & becoming less volatile. Well, I’m off to the gym now, time to pick up things & put them down
