First post so I’ll provide a little background. Was diagnosed at 37 and now just turned 51.
Did not really take my diagnoses serious until I had an episode of blacking out and busting my face open on my nightstand.
Starting May 10th I have completely changed my diet, exercise daily (30 minute brisk walk for now but adding more daily)
Now to today’s situation.
Breakfast this morning was 3 eggs cooked in olive oil, 3 sausage links, 2 pieces of life wheat bread with low sugar strawberry jelly (2 tablespoons) small glass of milk.
I calculate total carb intake of 43.
Prior to breakfast my BG was 191 which I know is high, but doctor currently cut my lantus from 40 units to 30 as I was experiencing multiple lows daily.
8 hours later my BG is 244 and without eating or drinking anything but a couple bottles of water.
One other thing I should mention is I was just today diagnosed with hyper thyroid and took first pill today to get it under control.
I’m completely confused why my BG is still so high when I feel like I am working so hard to keep it in range.
I know it’s a process but I feel like I am doing it wrong the more I try to d the right things.
Thanks I’m advance for bearing with my initial post rant and glad to have found the site.
