Thanks so much for answering this post.
Well, the test turned out fine. My blood sugar stayed within the range without any insulin. I am grateful, to say the least. For the past 2 days I have been running a little high, around 140-150, but that is not bad at all. We went out to dinner last night and I took some insulin, only because I was already 145, and I knew I would be eating a few more carbs than usual. I haven't done any more donut tests.
But, my glucose level has remained stable. I am so hoping that as I wean down more from the prednisone that I will have even more stable glucose levels, and then hopefully not have the diabetic symptoms. I'll just have to see.
the 25 carbs per meal. I joined an online diabetic site. They work out the amound of carbs, protein, and fat needed for good metabolism. I try my best to eat every 3-4 hours (small meals) with protein (20gms) fat (10gms) and carbs (25) or as close as I can get to all these. I will post the link if you want to check it out.
Again, Thanks!! It's good to get to know someone over here in the diabetic forum. I've had a rough time of it changing all my eating habits, but it's been worth it. Too bad it took this for me to do it.
I've lost about
20lb. and am holding at that weight. Prednisone makes me so hungry but I keep the foods here that I can eat. I stay stocked up on them, esp my sugar free jello and sf cool whip. They now have low carb yogurt too, a low carb, low sugar, low fat fat milk. They make the milk in chocolate. And, it's great tasting. It's called HOOD.
Bye for now. I hope to hear from you again.
