We eat our biggest meal around 6 PM. I've been told to eat a snack around 10pm. What makes a good snack? What else can I do?
I have recently experienced higher fasting glucose levels over the course of about 6 weeks. Normally, I am at 80- 120 in the mornings, but lately have been about 140- 160. The only big difference of late, I can pin point is,.. I have been drinking, maybe 1 can of diet sodas with my evening meals. I have also had sinus/ allergy issues about the same time (farmers in the locale are harvesting- kicking up dust & mold). Just trying to get a grip on whether the… read more
There are lots of ways to reach an a1c. Some methods leave wide swings. Some leave very little margin for error. Some involve one medication. Some involve many. So which is right for you and how will you decide? I've been mulling this over for a while.

I have just drastically reduced my consumption of sugary snacks due to starting on insulin. I honestly expected my partner would stop eating them in front of me but he hasnt.
I am considering going on disability. I have fought several health complications, and continued to force myself to work while doing so, but the struggle is becoming to much for me.
Aside for being diabetic, which takes a lot of time to manage, I had back surgery in January and will likely always have difficulty working long shifts on my feet. I also have colitis, high BP, anxiety, and depression.
