DISCLAIMER: I am posting this under the type 2 section because I am afraid if my question gets moved to the COMPLICATIONS section I will never get any answers. And this is kind of a urgent matter please dont move this post!
My mother has gastroparesis from being a Type 2 since 1998.
My mother takes Amaryl aka Glimepiride. I think once a day.
Mother’s blood sugar has been running high ( not BAD high) just a tad high in the mornings.
Since we started writing down her BS’s down on paper since 6/8 this is how its been going:
MORNING: 107, 134, 135,160,137,132,121,139,144,119,145,146,129,113,127,116,107,115,130,120,129,123,146,113,118,124,141,129,124,148,153,137,154,142,125
The 125 at the end being today’s morning reading.
They’re nights that she’ll replace 2 meals with a slimfast keto shake with less than 1 gram of sugar in it ( since liquid diet is okay with gastroparesis ) and it would still be kinda high the next day.
What I am wanting to know is, are those morning readings considered HIGH? When I think of high ( Hyperglycemia) is 180 to 200 to 300 to 400 +
And yes her BS does come down because her night readings are near perfect except for a night or two that we went out to eat.
101 on the end being last nights reading.
We don’t know what to do… She cant get back into the gastro doctor because he stays booked up for 3 or 4 months at a time. She’s about ready to go on a pure liquid diet.
I just hope she’s not damaging her body with her running a tad bit high in the mornings?? What do ya’ll think?
