I should add that if I restrict my carbs severely - in other words, letting no grains pass my lips and eating large salads,chicken,fish,eggs,nuts etc, that my blood sugar will go back down to around 100-105 (I’m not on any meds). I had a spike from 112 up to 165 after 2 hours (I can imagine it was probably 200 after an hour) after eating a small 250 calorie Lean cuisine meal of chicken and noodles - net carbs about 25. I knew the noodles were bad, but I wouldn’t have expected that big of a jump from that few carbs. A few days ago, I had a small 15-20 net carb bowl of oatmeal with pecans - my bs was 134 before eating that and 250 two hours later! I double checked that reading with another meter.
Is my pancreas finally just giving up? (I’ve had diabetes about 12 years). Or could it be virus or flonase related? If it were related to those, I wouldn’t think it would return to the 100 level eating only salads,meat,nuts,etc. Seems like it would remain elevated. (my last hba1c was 7.3 - which prompted me to start being very strict with my diet again, which normally if I do, I can bring it back down to the low 6’s and maybe even into the 5’s - the question is - how long will my discipline hold out eating this stuff over and over? Of course, it is highly preferred to have limbs removed).
This morning’s fasting BS - 107.
