I had taco bell for lunch so my blood sugar is high 218. Every now and then I cheat and just take a bigger dose of insulin.

So I finally fronted up at the Doctor after having my blood tests done. He advised that my average blood sugar levels had increased to 7. In don't know how to convert that to what it is for other countries.

He was sympathetic and told me that I had a lot going on. He said that 7 is borderline and if it goes up again then I will have to have a change of meds and he mentioned insulin. My next test is in three months instead of four.

Even with the Vyvanse that is still being adjusted my binging is horrid and I don't seem to be able to get a grip on it. I just feel stuck.


I boiled myself some eggs last night. See if they help.

7 is the highest doctors like to see diabetics on their A1C tests. 6.4 is the magic number if possible. Non diabetics are well under 4. Marilyn how has your blood sugar been?

It's gone crazy again and I have binged.I gave up trying to get it down only one more day and I see the diabetic nurse for medication change,hopefully that will sort me out.I am not succeeding with the New year diet so far!


I just measured and it's 500,my fault,I ate chocolate and drank soda pop!My eating is out of control I am afraid.

Me too. i will be too strict for too long, then i go wild. I think i need to not be so strict, or at least have more variation. I am not a bad cook, i need to use my skills.

I did not know that 7 was the highest acceptable point Guiness. Thanks for the input.

I find myself with the same dilemma Marilyn. I know what I should be doing but I don't to it. I am wondering if my going to some local weight loss group might be the answer. Not so much for the weight loss but more for the accountability of being weighed and being with like minded people who are talking about healthy eating. Plus there is the social factor too. Then again there is the cost factor.

What are your thoughts on that Marilyn? Would you?

Possum,I found the weight loss classes that I went to helpful,they steer you in the right direction on what to be eating and what to avoid to lose weight,being weighed regular is an incentive to keep on the diet .If you can keep up the diet when the classes end that is a big bonus.The classes I went to were free so I just had to find my cab fare there and back,the doctors provide the classes free.

I haven't been measuring blood sugars last two days,they were so high though last time I measured.I am going to see the diabetic nurse today,she is going to give me new diabetic medication to try,so hopefully,with the new medications and watching what I put in my mouth from here on in,I will get blood sugar down to normal levels.
