I'm looking for some knowledge in regard to diabetes. I have been tracking my blood sugar for the last day or so and I've noticed that almost all of my readings are above 100.
I have an appointment to speak to my dr and have some blood work done on Monday, however I'm looking for a little short term comfort.
My journal keeping on this kind of sucks, but some examples of my readings:
For dinner I ate a black bean burrito with some queso and chips and a little bit of orange juice.
At around 3 hours later my blood sugar meter was still reading at 118.
Last night before going to bed my blood sugar was reading at 104 (this was 4 hours after I had eaten dinner)
I was starving though so I ate half of tangerine.
When I got up the next morning, 6 hours later, it read 100.
The only time it read below 100 was after eating breakfast this morning it was at 83 (I had had some oatmeal and cottage cheese).
and mid morning it actually rose to 94 even though I hadn't eaten anything, but I was super hungry.
I took it a few other times and they were also over 100 but they were similar to the situations listed above. I know that they say anything between 70-120 or so is normal, but a lot of things I read state that in non-diabetic people it should be down under 100 after around 2 hours. Can anyone shed some light on any of this?
Thank you so much!
