I was just diagnosed with Type 2 on April 1 and began testing at my diabetes education class on April 5th. SO it's only been a few days!!
I'm on 500mg Metformin once a day. Things started out great, my BG at the class was 85 and I was so relieved and excited. Things were going well for a few days but then yesterday - I woke up, didnt eat breakfast, went for a run and when I got back it was at 117. I felt nervous about eating, not sure what to do. Had an apple and PB, REALLY didn't feel like eating most of the day. Thought maybe I was sick. Later on had a vanilla protein shake. Before dinner was at 110 and after dinner (chicken pot pie) was 167. I know this is not sky high but it is much higher than it's been all week.
This morning when i got up my fasting was 110. I wonder if I'm sick? or what else can be causing this. What can I do to bring it down??
I can see that this testing can be as neurotic as jumping on and off the scale 5x a day, that it can mess with one's head. But i know it's necessary and need to put it into some perspective. Help?
