Hello I have a question about A1C.
My A1C is 5.5 right now am I am happy!
But, I have sort of fallen off of the wagon and I have get a craving for sweets and I have a book where I write down everything I eat, how much salt was in what I ate, etc. I am writing this down because I am have gotten my HBP under control and I want to keep it that way.
Anyways I went on a kick and had something sweet for 4 or 5 days in a row… Just enough to get a taste. If it says I can have 1/6 of something I only eat 1/6. Or if it says 2 pieces I might only eat 1 or maybe both to satisfy my craving. Sometimes I over do it and eat 3 pieces ( I KNOW I KNOW don’t throw tomatoes at me!) lol
I have been abstaining from eating sweets and I was doing good but man that craving just hit me after not eating anything sweet for awhile.
So my question is, if I have something sweet daily will it cause my A1C to go back up?
I try to alternate days and not eat anything sweet for 3 or 4 days and then treat myself then try ( it doesn’t always work) to go another 3 or 4 days and treat myself again.
