4.4 at 0815 pre-breakfast...take that dawn phenomenom
My partner was 8.2 this morning and 8.6 yesterday morning. I took him to his endocrinologist two days ago to say that his BGL were getting higher and higher in the mornings, although hardly moved up after food. After five days of climbing morning BGLs, despite walking, low carb diet and reduced portions, I consulted his endocrinologist, who suggested he weight-lift light weights for ten minutes before bed. Walking for over an hour effected little change all day yesterday. He lifted light weights for ten minutes before bed. After that he found that his BGL was slightly over 10! Today after waking to 8.2, he drank coffee then more drinks and went out walking for hours. When he came back, his BGL had come down to 5.6 - second time ever since we have been testing. He ate nothing until about 2pm. He is on a low carbohydrate diet; he eats no bread, rice, potatoes, pasta and only vegetables that are not starchy, and very few nuts. The endocrinologist has given me a script for metformin if my partner's BGLs remain so high after two weeks. Are we being extreme in trying to keep the BGLs as low as possible by any means (i.e. dilution, not eating and exercise?) I'm afraid that the glucose will keep rising and do him damage.
7.6 yesterday and 7.3 today so moving in the right direction.
Two questions .....
1. Those of you who're reporting their first test result of the day, is this your only test or one of a series throughout the day?
2. I only started on a low carb diet in June, so this may be early days for me, but I'm consistently getting first-thing-in-the-morning readings of between 7 and 8.5, with one instance of 9. I can see no reason why it's up some days and down on others. Given these are all above what I'm meant to be aiming for (4 to 7/pre-meal), where do I go from here? (My HbA1c was 47 last week - and 47 when I was diagnosed T2 in May.)
11.3 fed up
@JenniferW I generally only do my FBG as my last Hb test was 34 so my LC diet is pretty much sorted. If I am trying something new I will still test 2 hrs after eating though.
It can sometimes take time for your BS to come down, especially your FBG. Just remember the most important readings are 2 hrs after you have eaten.
