I've not been doing so well lately... just went to the endo yesterday and my a1c is 8.4-- the highest it's ever been in my four years as a diabetic. I don't know why. My habits haven't lapsed at all, but my numbers have been higher overall.
I started Lysine supplements a few weeks ago because I get mouth ulcers, and that's supposed to make them heal faster. Has anyone experienced high bg's because of Lysine supplements?
Does anyone have any advice for me in general? I keep getting these weird highs out of the blue. Like today, I was in the 150s-170s all day, then bam right now I'm 320. Why!?! I had a dinner tonight that previously never has negatively impacted my bg's.
These random highs are really making it hard for me to finish out my senior year on a high note. My CDE and I increased most of my basals yesterday to take care of trends where I'm increasing (overnight and afternoon-dinner) but I'm still getting highs.
Is this typical? Do you sometimes have periods of a few months where everything is higher, then the opposite happens? I'm so used to treating lows, not highs-- that was the way it used to be. Now I'm hardly ever low... but wishing I was.
Help please! Thanks so much...
