@phonic2k Thanks. I just wish I could wake up every day at 3.9 before the DP. I can live with it jumping to low or mid 5, stabilising and then gradually lowering throughout the day.
It gets really depressing when I wake up at 6 and it jumps to 7 before it stabilises and lowers. All this despite normally only eating 1 meal a day and having virtually zero body fat now.
4.9 This morning
@phonic2k thanks for your support, really appreciate it.
I broke my fast tonight on 48hrs and ate 2 pork chops, loads of mixed veg, a Lidl protein roll and a dozen raspberries with Greek yogurt. Pre meal @5.4, 45 mins 6.2, 90 mins 6.8 and 2 hrs 6.2. Am really pleased with that, hope it continues.
7.5 today, a new record high for me.
Emergency 5 minute aerobic session took place in the living room. It dropped to 6.3 after.
6.4 but rose to 7.7 after Breakfast which was Mullerlight yogurt plus 35g of Oatmeal (soaked oats ) , plus a pear 'good ' on the Slimming World Plan . Maybe this is totally wrong ? (I usually workout Swimming / gym in morning ) I have a B**** cold , can't go out .
I have had the same as I got 42 in Jan , referred to the clinician , told next test after 1yr , to eat less fruit , 42 = 6 , I'm getting 6.9 , 6.4 in morning (1 7.9 day after binge ) . There is something called 'Liver Dump' , put a search in on here , it explains it all . Good luck Alison . ~ Pre Diet
42=6% which would mean average finger prick tests of around 7. This was the level I was diagnosed prediabetic 6 years ago just on the borderline.
Hi Thanks for replying , I am Borderline / Prediabetic , no Meds for diabetes , struggling to stick to low carb / Slimming World , juggling it a bit , have just noticed a varied reading from one finger to the next within a minute of each other , do you find this ? Have you managed to stay stable / get lower readings by Low Carb? or just Low Calorie ?
Don't worry about varied readings from fingers this is normal. The meters are not accurate and can be 10%? out plus blood glucose level are constantly changing.
Lost 6 stone moderate low carb within first 20 months fasting readings in the 4's all good, then lost control 2 years ago with HBA1C 47 now back to 40 'normal' last month
5.8 this morning, better.
5.5 today on the accu mobile, 5.9 on Tee 2.
6.4 this morning
Hello friends, could I ask your advice please?
I finally got the machine and all the bits together and started testing, aiming for x7 daily, pre- & 2 hours post- meals (just for a few days). I am pre-diabetic, HbA1c was 6.4 last May, 6.2 October. Have been trying to reduce carbs to less than 100g a day. However, my results so far show 6.9 or 6.3 before breakfast, and 5.8 to 6.3 during the day, both before and 2 hours after meals. What can I do to reduce my pre-meal glucose levels? I know this is not an heroically high level but I am concerned as I originally went to my GP with recently numb feet (and severe athlete's foot for several years). The fungus has cleared up now I am oozing less sugar, but the numbness remains and I do NOT want to lose toes!
You sound identical to me. I have exactly the same fasting, pre-meal and post-meal figures as you. I also have 2 numb feet which I have had for about a year.
I'll be honest, I haven't managed to reduce my numbers as yet, in fact my fasting are going up. I'm exercising and having less than 100g carbs a day. I've tried eating less carbs but couldn't sustain it with my hectic lifestyle, if you can manage it your numbers may reduce. This is probably key to it.
For my feet I am taking alpha lipoic acid, vitamins b12 and b1 and folate. It has helped, they are a bit better but I am told it could be permanent and get progressively worse.
All the best to you.
