5.9 and then 6.7 half hour after getting up..... I have a stupid liver too....
4.9@8:20am. Not tested for a while, but still seems ok.
You've probably tried this, but an evening snack before bed has helped me get the FBG down. Peanutbutter on brown ricecracker worked for me, but only if my evening BG was low
6.1 7am, but after evening out with steak, mushroom sauce and.. chips. Potatoes usually spikes me like crazy. 3hrs after meal 7.4, might be the combination of highfat, protein and carbs..
It will be the spuds, they are deadly.
You're right. I used to have very little potato and the next morning my FBG would be between around 8 so I cut them out completely. Just testing it out for the first time in 4 months last night, so 6.1 is actually pretty good for me
Funny but I already have exactly this...peanut butter on brown rice cracker, what a coincidence
4.8 Fasting, 4.8 2 hours after breakfast, and have a guess... 4.8 after lunch. I expected the last one to be low due to doing some cardio today, but interesting how they are all the same today.
5.8 today. Been using MySugr to track for 5 days, telling me A1C approx 5.3, Deviation +/- 0.5 most days and according to my meter, averaging 5.9 over the last 500 readings.
To get the A1C percentage from your average blood glucose of 5.9, you can use this formula for example: 5.9*18+46.7/28.7 = 5.32 AIC: 5.32%(or the new IFCC method: 34.6). You should be happy with that.
I do that myself with Numbers(or Exel for PC) and use the formula to get the A1C over the weeks months. It's a good way of making sure you get no shock results.
Thanks for that. I guess I gotta be happy with that as my last doctors A1C was 5.6 (38) last June.
It's the damn fasting numbers overnight I am struggling with. They just don't want to budge.
7.2 yesterday and 6.8 today
I had a 5.5 yesterday and 5.8 today. I ate dinner 1.5 hours earlier each night. Problem is I have woken at 4am each morning ravenously hungry and couldn't get back to sleep.
Funny you say that, I've noticed that too... I generally eat around 8-9pm and wake up pretty much at the same level I go to bed at and then 15 mins after getting up I get the dreaded liver dump.
Last night I went to bed at 5.8, woke at 5.8, climbed to 6.4 then settled back at 5.8 an hour later.
There was the odd occasion I've woken with 5.5, this was achieved by eating at 6pm as it happens as I was eating early at birthday party's both times.
You're onto something here.
For the sake of hba1c this is undoubtedly best for me, but in reality it's not sustainable. I can't eat too early because of work and I hate being hungry all night.
Sunday 6.4 (slept in) today 5.9
5.2 this morning but was higher yesterday Finally learning the foods that are 'unsafe'
