I wondered if I was diabetic as I have none of the symptoms. Like been thirsty, I do drink a lot of water but only because its good for you and the only other thing I drink is skim milk and tea. NO pop alcoholic or shakes etc . I can hold off going to the bathroom all night and long periods .
I do not like white rice and hate pasta of any kind .I like yams and eat a few new baby potatoes . I eat brown bread .whole wheat rye etc My hubby and I have cut out a lot of red meat .We eat fish, chicken and a few times red meat. No sandwich meat, hot dogs etc .
My downfall is sweets. I love my muffin or bagel or crumpet in the morn . But eat choc ,,desserts etc.
I have completely cut them out now .
After 10 hours fasting my reading was 6.7 when they did an annul Dr exam .But the night before I ate a box of crunch and munch
I finally got a meter yesterday and some test strips the Dr gave me as a try,.in her office when she did it I was 5.6
She only wants me to do it 4 times today 4 tomorrow at different times .This morn I was 4.3 before tea and breakfast (lol I ruined 3 stips before I got it right ),,Question can I have my tea first lol . Another Question can you reuse test strips?
I didn't get enough blood..
after low fat homemade muffin and 2 cups of tea for breakfast it was 4.6 . I had a low fat bar for snack .
Then water aerobics Now I really blew it 1/2 sandwich was ok with tomatoes and lettuce BUT my granddaughter bought me a small candy apple.My reading 3 hour later was 7.2 .
For supper I had fish on whole white bread with large salad and skim milk Reading 2 hours later 6.5
