I am a T2 for now 4 months. Diagnosed with a BS of 350 & A1C of 10.1, After 3 months of diet, exercise & 500mg Metformin I was able to get my A1C to 6.9 with my BS in the 120's. In the past 3 weeks I have been suffering through a sinus infection & cold and a lot of stress at work (it is just a few weeks a year that are terribly stressful at work that I endure-it will be over in another 2-3 weeks). My BS numbers have been in the 140's although I am maintaining the same diet & exercise. I am terribly tired all the time despite sleeping well.
I know that my stress will be over shortly and hopefully my sinus infection & cold will be over soon. How can I get my BS numbers down during this stressful time? This is the first hurdle I have come up against in this T2 journey and would like to hear how you have handled this. I am rather upset that my numbers are not where I would like, but I understand why they are not due to stress & illness. Any ideas or suggestions?
