So I have been eating solid food again without throwing up, thanks to my holistic healer and digestive enzymes! Yay! Now, the new problem, I had adjusted to a completely liquid diet before this- now adding the solid food back in, I am having totally upredictable blood sugars. I know this is part of gastroparesis and slowed digestion, but I feel like venting about this, and would like others to join me!
Some of my favorite crazy blood sugar stories:
I ate a huge meal- 80g of carbs- hummus and crackers- and had a low of 54 afterwards, which I had to correct- (I can't sit around with a blood sugar that low and just wait, mid 60s is about as low as I'm willing to wait on), and then 3 hours later I tested and was 250. Yikes!
I went for a 3 mile jog/ walk, started off with a blood sugar of 124, and at the end of it was 230. (And I know this was the gastroparesis, because I could feel things start to move in my gut while I was out walking! As soon as I felt it, I was like "damn, I know I am going to come back high!)
Okay, so are others out there having the same problems? Anyone else want to moan and groan about it? Even if it doesn't make you feel better to b*tch about it, it will make me feel better knowing I'm not the only one! :)
