I have been having a really hard time dealing with this diagnosis. I take care of myself pretty well I think, actually my a1c in january was around 12 at diagnosis and my dr. just told me after my first post dx a1c test that I am 4.7! He's actually worried that that number is too low.
I'll tell you my problem... I AM NEVER HUNGRY!
I worry about going low all the time.
I am on a sliding scale for meals(humalog or apidra) and I take 18 units of lantus at night.
Today I woke up at around 9 with a BG of 108, i didn't eat till 3pm and my bg was only 96.
I have recently been put on lexapro to help me deal with my issues, I am wondering if my loss of appetite is due to the medication.
I am just confused most of the time.
Can anyone suggest meal plans to help with this?
I am also a massage therapist and due to my lack of appetite I get low DURING treatments which isn't fair to my clients. I will literally be unable to use my hands and get super cold sweats. NO GOOD!!
It's all so frustrating!!! HELP ME!
