Hello again ,it took a few months of learning about what to eat, but my blood sugars are getting lower and lower. For instance,  this morning I took two consecqutive readings that were under a 95. A couple months ago they would of read  double or triple that.
The drinking of more water might is probably helping as well.
Does anyone have any theories on what is going on here?  Thanks.
By the way, that other thread entitled "an understanding" looks like an attempt to get free advertising for his vitamin website. Just a hunch, sorry if I am wrong.

Hey DMw...Kudos to you on the great blood sugars! Sounds to me like you've adopted an understanding of what/how you need to eat and exercise and that it's now paying off. Sometimes it just takes a bit of time and routine for the body to adjust and level out. What you're doing seems to be working just the way you want it to. Good on ya :-)

The same thing happened to me.
When I divided my meals into 5 (instead of 3), my numbers dropped. When I split my exercise into 3 shorter sessions (instead of 1 long one), my numbers dropped. I really didn't change anything too drastically (different carbs, but not fewer carbs)- but all of the little changes added up to nice drops in BG levels. I have beeen doing this now consistently for about 8 months and my numbers and A1c have stabilized in the 75 - 95 range (fasting, pre-meal, pre-bed) with 100-110 after meal readings (lower 5's for the A1c).
I have been traveling for the past 10 days- my schedule has been shot to he$$- my meals have been a big departure from my normal routine- but I exercised every day, and drank water like a camel at an oasis- and my numbers were as good as at home! I'm guessing that once your body gets used to a certain range, it tries to get there and stay there-
I also noticed that while it took me a good 4-5 months to get rid of carb cravings, it only took a few meals with slightly higher carb counts for me to begin thinking about what carby things I can eat now that I'm back home again. Thankfully, I am too tired to go to the grocery today or I might give into the temptation!
Congrats on your better numbers!

Glad to see you're doing better! And thanks for the heads-up on the improper signature. New members often take a while to become familiar with the rules of the site. Take care.

Thanks Jeannie. I woke up to an all time low. 87. That's 3 to 4 times lower than where it was a six months ago.
And I even haven't been able to exercise much lately, since my membership expired.  I am working on that though so no lectures please.

Not a lecture, but.... You can go for a walk for free.
