Another thing you may want to do is call and ask your doctor to schedule a fasting blood sugar test and an A1c (glycohemoglobin test). He can call the order into a lab, and you just go in before you eat anything one day and they draw blood. This will give the doctor some numbers to look at and help you both decide what is going on. If you have become diabetic this is an excellent time to start saving your eyesight, kidneys and help prevent all the complications that can accompany this disease.
And if you are a full blown diabetic we can help you through this one day at a time. If you are still 'prediabetic' you may be having a hypoglycemic period that often shows up before you flip and become diabetic. Regardless of the diagnosis, we can give you lots of tips to handle your fluctuating blood sugars. Take care, and let us know how the labs turn out. And keep doing the nuts and cheese as Fergusc suggested. He is one wise Scotsman!
