Did you have any sauces or marinade, sometime they have sugar in them?
6.7 this morning.
I think red wine spikes me but haven't drank alcohol for yrs. White wine definitely did.
Some have great success with red wine lowering there fbg but I'm not sure how much food alongside, if any and how much wine?
In thinking about it - you are probably right. I bet it was a combination of many things adding up causing the spike. I will need to try red wine on it's own to see what that does over the two hours. Thank you.
4.3 today (surprisingly since I had about 5 hours sleep due to the heat)
5.6 this morning after a very unpleasant night. I just cannot cope with these high temperatures, very little sleep had to take pain killers at three in the morning bruises on arm started bleeding don't know why and tinnitus was so intense made my head hurt. Hope it cools down soon just a little.
19/6 - Morning.
2 hats for me dear - flat cap for driving and straw hat for for wandering around the field. You're right about sunstroke, and I think diabetics are more prone to it.
6.3 for again today
7 .0......happy with that
I think I've seen the fives pass me bye for a few weeks hopefully they're like boomerangs and come back again
On the contrary, I can expect an appreciable drop in FBG following a convivial evening. I rather suspect your sausages were the more likely cuplrit.
On the bright side, I think more research is needed into the effects of red wine!
Possibilities include overdoing the carnivore thing, sauces or sausages made out of dust - increase wine
6 this morning - swings or possibly roundabouts, never sure which is which
5.8 very early this morning then after 5 and a half hours travelling it was 5.0. Still fasting as nothing diabetic friendly on the train.
Might be a silly question!!
I can see a few of these threads each day populated by many people and it is clear from the forum we have diverse people with diverse results.
What I am still not sure of myself is what I am aiming for in terms of my on FBG reading.
I am T2 newly diagnosed and range from mid 4's to early 5's (probably more in the 5's than 4's unless red wine involved). no real change in 2 months with around just over 2 stone weight loss.
Am I after 4's all the time or are early 5's ok/normal as per the NICE guidelines say they are?
I am assuming everyone has their own goal, just interested in knowing if this too is as diverse for everyone or are we all wanting a "golden number" and if so what is that? or is the target the NICE guidelines or those agreed with your DN?
@Looseboy NHS gudelines are that T2s should have fbgs of 4-7. I average 6.3, rarely lower than 5.3 or higher than 6.5.
I am happy with that, I could possibly get lower fbgs if I consumed even less carbs. I was getting fbgs mainly in the 4s and 5s when I ate mainly just soup when I was on holiday for 4 weeks.
Our bodies are all different and react differently. Some achieve 4s and 5s regularly and I do envy them a bit, but I'm ok with my fbgs.
Thanks @Prem51 , So NICE guidelines then. I think I may be overthinking it. Just feels like sometimes even though we have these guides there are views that they may be to high / people don't believe them i.e. a race to the bottom.
For me i am within them so at this point I want to feel ok and not worry about something that I don't need to worry about.(hope that makes sense)
5.0 this morning. Day off to enjoy the beautiful weather.
Hi. these waking levels are not necessarily the best indicators of your average level; they are seldom my lowest. I think that the "number" you are "happy" with depends largely on whether or not you are on medication or are just getting normal range levels on diet alone. I presume that you are on meds...otherwise your numbers aren't just good; they are non-diabetic. There's ideal..and there's reality. I am happy if I am under 7mmols all day (but I don't take meds); if I am being strict with my low carb diet, my level will stay between 5 and 6.5.
