I have been type 2 diabetic since 1993 when my Daughter was born. I have always thought my diabetes was caused by over eating and being overweight. I have lost a whole lot of weight in the last two years. Now that I am at my goal weight, I figured my insulin dependence would subside or my numbers would be better. Their not and I wake up to 500+ numbers every morning still. Any one want to hazard a guess why? I am clueless.
Hi since I am not a dr or nurse my guess would be you could be eating the wrong kind of foods.
I would strongly suggest that you go see your dr, numbers in the 500's every morning is dangerous. Is your insulin out dated? What foods do you eat before bed? Are you taking the right dosage of meds for your high readings?
All these questions and more should be addressed with your dr. We can try to help you figure this out but we are not your treating physician.
I shall wait upon the Lord and renew my strength. Come follow my life's journey at: www.mybearyspecial.blogspot.com
