My last test my sugars were at 260 but I had been drinking gatorade and vitamin water all day right up until my blood work..........why did I do this? I had a colonoscopy the next day and needed to drink stuff w/electrolytes so I would not dehydrate and maybe not the best stuff to drink in retrospect and the fact that it did not even occur to me that it would screw up my lab work. I am decreasing the pred and have been watchful of refined carbs/sugars, though I had fallen off the wagon some and have not been exercising lately.
Is the 260 really bad, considering everything I mentioned above? I am back to eating well and once I beat this cold will be back on the treadmill, will have my next blood work in two weeks.
Thanks so much!
