surfing the Diabetic tide

If you were to check your glucose levels every hour and graph the results your should see gentle waves on the graph not high peaks and lows. The easiest way for me to achieve this is to eat 4 small meals and 1-2 snacks at equal distant times. I make sure to have fibrous carbs and low fat proteins in all of them. One of my fav snacks is tart apple with the skin on, sliced, spread with real peanut peanut butter. Eating a small amount every 3-4 hours keeps the tranquil flow.

Is There a 'Safe' Blood Sugar Level?

Yes, there is a safe blood sugar level. It is the optimum range that safely provides the body with adequate amounts of energy. For the average person, it is 70 to 105 mg/dl in a fasting state. (Diabetes is diagnosed when the fasting blood glucose level is at or above 126 mg/dl.)

Vegetarian eating for diabetics

I found that no matter how focussed I was on my eating my blood glucose levels were too high. Once I started eating a vegetarian diet I saw dramatic decreases over the next few weeks.
Once I began eating a vegan diet even more dramatic results occurred. An added bonus was the excellent weight loss without even needing to change exercise levels as well.

Low sugar while out walking

When I go for a long walk with my baby, I always bring an emergency source of sugar. I like bringing a juice box. It's refreshing and gets the job done!

Hypos

I take yogurt apricots with me. The sugar is fast acting if you have a hypo attack and the raisins give you enrgy.

What the Doctor Says Isn't True for Me

I'm Finding that what my Dr. said isn't True for Me...I was told to eat 45 carbs at each of my 3 meals and 15 for my 3 snacks. My numbers did come down but not where they should be. I dropped my carb count to under 100 per day and now my numbers are much lower. Everyone is Different I guess...

Record your insulin use

Checking your blood glucose and recording the results can help tell you how well your insulin is working.
Your doctor needs to look at your blood glucose results and your record of insulin doses. Ask about when your insulin starts to work, when it works hardest and how long it lasts.
Look for patterns of high and low blood glucose then make adjustments so that you are within the target range most of the time.
