hi im worriedgirl or stupid whatever you wish to call me. i knew for years i was at risk, even my hubby got on my case but i never lost the weight just thought it wont happen to me. monday i had the signs of a uti but wasnt to bad just thought i was going to start my period(i have a tilted uterus) by nightfall i knew for sure. went to urgent care tuesday and sure enough uti and sugar in my urine and blood sugar of 259, scary right. called my pcp fasted wednesday(no food after 8 and no drinks) found out i could have had a small snack before midnight. went thursday morning where they did the hba1c and found out i was diabetic. the doctor didnt have to tell me as the assistant pulled out the living with diabetes book.
i tested my blood sugar at 10 two hours after dinner and it was 148. i dont know what to eat and all my apptment with the pharmasict slash dietician diabetic expert til april 11. i had one hot dog no bread, 2/3 cup of macaroni and cheese and beans and a bottle water with crystal light on the go packet in it.about 70 carbs all together and for a snack a dole apple ciniman with 32 carbs and 1/3 cup 2% milk. at 1130 i was hungry and midnight was getting sick. didnt know if i feel that way if i should test so i did and in two hours went up to 173.
i start metformin tomorrow. i know it wont go down overnight but its still better than 259. oh for lunch i had a large salad(ate all but 1/4 of it) and 5 cheesesticks. i know cheesesticks are bad but better than mash potatoes with gravy. for breakfast they gave me a few pretzels and applesauce with water and i had one poptart not the two it comes with just one. i used one ranch small packet with my salad.
i guess what im asking is the sugar spike normal. i do have some numbness occasionally in my toes but my book says that is a symptom and its normally rare and after wearing shoes all day long
