My bg numbers are doing well with me on my very low carb diet. I try not to eat more than 30g carbs per meal, but I’m usually doing about 16g carbs per meal. My numbers usually stay in the 120’s or early 130’s, that is unless I eat cereal. Then I’m upwards of 180. But that doesn’t happen often.
I’m wondering if my metformin is doing anything at all in my system. I did have cereal once and my bg went down from 179 to 102 or so in one hour (for the 2 hr mark). That might have been the metformin working. Not sure. I’d like to see lower more non-diabetic numbers but I’m not sure if that’ll ever happen. My fasting bg is still in the 100-112 range. I never see it lower, but I have seen lower readings such as the lowest I’ve seen which was 92 during the day. Oh actually I had a reading in the 80’s today. I don’t know if that was a fluke though. I hope I see more numbers like that as the days go on. I’m only on 500mg Metformin twice a day. I may need a higher dose, not sure. I see the doc in December so if I’m not seeing the numbers I’d like to see, especially my fasting glucose, I’ll mention my numbers to him and see what he says. Actually I’ll print out my bg’s for him as I now have software and data cable for my meter, which is new also.
I love my Bayer Contour! It’s so speedy and accurate its wonderful! And it’s a lime green color, which I chose. lol Yay. I love the advanced features it has such as pre-meal, post-meal markers and an alarm to remind me to test at 2 hrs after my meal. Sweet.
