Hi Capt, sorry you're panicking about
this but you'll have to come to terms with having higher than normal blood sugar. You had a lot of sugary food in a short time and your blood sugar test showed that you are not handling carbohydrates normally. It's almost like you gave yourself a glucose tolerance test. Maybe the 168 wasn't critical but it's higher than what a normal person's test would be. You already know you're binging on the wrong food, so it would be very helpful to your health to eat better. Eat more protein (meats and fish), vegetables and cut way back on the carbs. Don't eat muffins and orange juice for breakfast followed by cake! Eat eggs with cheese or any kind of bacon instead. This kind of diet change may allow you to lose weight and bring down your blood sugar. I also think you should see your doctor if you have one and talk this health matter over. If diabetes runs in your family, you might be prone to the disease, too. Please look through the past threads here that talk about
food, diet, recipes and you'll have a good idea about
what to eat. Stay with us. Lots of people here can help with great advice!
