Can 1 Large Carb Load Make Your Diabetes Worse Permanently?

Can 1 Large Carb Load Make Your Diabetes Worse Permanently?

I redid the glucose test and my numbers went way up then went way down and since then (2 days) all my levels have been about 1.5mmol/L higher than average (fasting, pre, post). Pretty worried I broke my pancreas further lol! Is that a thing or will my numbers go back to normal? 😰

Oh thank you, that makes sense, and your edit above is reassuring! I didn't realize they knew it was at 8.7 and above that damage happens. Good to know!
Thanks again! I'll keep watch

What This Site Considers Spam

What This Site Considers Spam

OK I find this strange. How come when I want to give advice to people and use several of my own pre written information I put in my computer on my spreadsheet that I created, this site only lets me post them once a day, then let me know I already wrote something similar and it is considered spam. Yet someone who just joined for the past 2 days can advertise to people 1 by one with exact same phrases something they are wanting to buy and / or distribute, yet that is not considered spam. I have… read more

Any Advice On How To Get My Fasting Number To Start Out Lower?

Any Advice On How To Get My Fasting Number To Start Out Lower?

I was diagnosed in October of 2012. I was pretty controlled; so I didn’t really have to try very hard. About a year ago this started to change. Now I find myself with fasting numbers of 170 to 200. I fight all day just to bring my numbers down. It is a losing battle. The game is rigged and there is just no winning. I am feeling very defeated and hopeless. My husband not understanding, wants to rush me to emergency all the time. I just don’t know what to do at this point.

One thing I do is not eat after 7p.m. my numbers are now in the 1teens!
