I was dx’d on 10/10/2008… I’ve been to my endo and nutritionist since then, just a few days ago, to be honest, and my BG’s have gone from 317 initially to an amazing 12 days of 88-103!! They were all thrilled, along with my having lost 7 pounds in that month… the amazing thing about the weight loss is they put me on Lantus, which is supposed to make me gain what, 25 or more pounds… they were thrilled… as was I cheezie grin
My question comes into play here… a couple days after that our friend brought over his 18 month old who is getting over some sort of illness… and I believe I have caught something… my BG’s are about 20 points higher than they were for that “amazing 12 days”… is this typical? Is this my body’s way of trying to get more energy to my cells so that I can heal faster? I’m running around 115-126 when I wake up… I know those are “normal” levels of BG, but I like seeing the near 100’s… after my meals my BG’s are around 135-148… so those are still pretty good… but… HELP!!! Is this normal? Or has something gone horribly wrong???
