I know this is an odd question; just consider the source:)
I’m not under Dr care. I got my glucometer when I was pregnant almost 3 years ago now. I just test cuz I know that my numbers say I am diabetic.
On my own, I’ve basically figured out how to eat to keep my numbers in “sorta control” by that I mean that I always have
a morning high. When I get up my number sits between
135 and 165 any given morning.( I guess it depends on what I ate and what I did the night before.) example go for a walk, or being intimate with my hubby)
Always for lunch, numbers are between 120 and 150. again depends on what I ate for breakfast. If I eat something like an omelet I’m good for a 120. If I add toast; I’m good for 150! LOL! leave the bread alone as it will kill me!
Lunch normally consists of eggdrop soup or salads or hummus with sliced cucumbers … stuff like that. Sometimes chili with cheese:)
For dinners, my numbers run from 95 to 135.
Most dinners consist of Eggplant parmesan 9 frozen dinner at Walmart for $2.98 or a couple of Spicy blackbean burgers or salads… sometimes what ever the family is eating minus the any pasta/rice/ eany refined grains. ( they will always kick my number high.)
Ok FORBID that I tried to eat any “normal foods as my numbers when be over the limit!” as in somewhere around 4oo to the sky and heavens above:D LOL! Ok so based on that info I “think” I am definitely "diabetic.
Example: Last night we went out to a family rest. I ate from the buffet. I did great til desert. I had fried greenbeans (southern dish - it’s fresh greenbeans with onions sauteed)
Breaded deep fried shrimp, I went for the steamed broccoli but it was cold! Grrr!! and a dinner roll. Then the desert bar:D ok so I did the biggest no-no’s there. I snagged the sugar free cherry pie… and the keylime pie ( not sugarfree)
I sliced a thin piece of carrotcake without the frosting… then I roamed over and got a piece of the chocolare,fudgey, yummy brownie with chocolate icing. All said and done.
I shared most of it with my 12 yr and 11 yr old daughters.
still one hour later I was 240 and 4 hours from dinner I was 294. scared the livin daylights out of my hubby as he has never seen me test that high. ( actually I did one time… when he was in Iraq and I ate a whole chocolate snickers bar
by myself. that was 315… I never told him about it.) ok he activated Monday and I dont know what is in store for our lives just yet; but that really isnt part of this question.
I dont want to go to a dr because he is only a reservist and once he deactivates again we wont have ins anyway… so it isnt worth it to me.
Question : what type does that “class” me as?
Your opinions please?
