I wish a few days ago had not happened. I had a glucose tolerance test done on me. I had to fast, then drink a sugary drink, and then have blood drawn from me every hour for three hours. The first reading was from the fasting which was 115, which is somewhat high but not critical. Then, one of the readings was 235 for my blood sugar, which is a high reading.
I have to go this morning for another blood test to see what medication that I might need to help me with this condition. I am going to ask to talk to the doctor about how I should start eating. I think I am more than a borderline diabetic.
I had the test, and my A1C was about 5.9 which is average. Then later in the day my blood sugar was 136. Now I have a blood-sugar meter, and have been testing it several times each day.
I will start exercising again, because I do not want to become overweight. Please, if you think you could have this condition start eating better right away, and then make an appointment to see your doctor.
Now days later my morning my reading was 122 before eating breakfast. This number is not as bad as it could be, however, it is still too high. If I eat just one sweet treat then within a short time I want to sleep.
Virily Family-I need a pep talk! As you all know yesterday was Easter, and I think my blood sugar was high due to eating two desserts. I ate normal in my opinion that day, but I guess maybe I was wrong by eating that second dessert. I ate one dessert at my mom’s house, then one for the supper meal at my mother-in-law’s house.
Now I feel hungry more often, so please give me some advice. Thank you!
I need to become more physically fit, by exercising and eating healthy. I do not want to become a diabetic.
