I am VERY active in the summer, not so this time of year. I am 5'9" tall about 190 pounds, lot of muscle and some fat too ! I am going to try and get back on my walking routine.
Yesterday I had at 12:00 noon a turkey sandwich with swiss and mayo on white bread, bottle of water, small bag of chips and a ( yea I know ) brownie.
I then went bowling for an hour or so. Took my level before supper at 5:30 it was like 95 ??
I just looked and my last 5 fasting tests at the Dr during routine bllod work were in the 90's My boss just said IF you were to go to a reg DR they would tell you the numbers are too high, if you went to a diabetes Dr they would say you are fine, excersise daily and drink lots of water.
I dont drink much water either would this help ??
Also I usually eat oatmeal with yougert and a glass of water every morning for breakfast NO sugar or anything else.
Will drinking alot of water help keep the numbers lower ??
thank you fro your help

oh, ok, well I just re-read my blood reports and he states at the bottom of the one that was 107
" you do not have diabetes and your number is only slightly out of line but we will continue to watch it.All your other numbers lok fine"
I know IF my blood sugar gets below 85 I dont feel well at all.
my waking numbers are usually under 100, and before lunch and supper about the same. I have 2 friends that have diabetes and they said " quit worrying you are fine"
My numbers go up to like 140 2 hours after a big meal then back to 90's before the next meal.
I have checked my number right after getting up in the morning and it will be like 97, then shower, get dressed, and before eating breakfast it will be like 118
I was told this is normal that your body is dumping xtra glucose to get energy into your system ???
I need to drop about 10 pounds and start my walking routine again !
