Recently my doctor informed me that my fasting blood sugar was slightly high (123 & 127 on another occasion). She wanted to start me on insulin tabs. I refused and said I could bust this with exercise and diet and am determined, but also have to learn some stuff. I would appreciate any help or ideas, I really want to turn this around. My H1BAC (did I get that right?) was 6.1 and the doctor said under 6.4 was ok. My daughter has hyper-insulinism, so I do have some knowledge of sugar levels.
I have just had lunch which was 2 slices of wholegrain bread, one slice of cheese and a little pickle with some salad. After my BS was 168. I was like, WOW. that is terrible. On fasting today it was 110 and after breakfast (oatmeal) it was 134, not bad I thought.
I would love to hear what kind of food you would recommend. I like eating lentils & beans, grilled chicken and veg. I hate fried foods, and I am sure you are all wondering how I ended up like this? Chocolate and sweets and ice cream. My sweet tooth is unbelievable. I have drowned it now.
Many thanks for reading this. I am looking forward to participating.
