    2019 Morning Fasting BG Readings

    Hello Patty, Glad you have joined the group. I am curious, what you have been eating and when do you eat. Do you keep a food list? This will be very helpful in figuring out the high's you are having. Normally highs follow a meal that has carbs or is too much for your body to handle. Keeping a food list will be of great benefit. Simply write everything you put into your mouth on a pad. List the time and the amount. Then when you take your readings you will be able to learn what foods bring high numbers, then you can avoid them or limit them. Hope this helps and you get things under control, it is very hard on your body to bounce from high to low. Hope this helps, Janice

    2019 Morning Fasting BG Readings

    4.6 BG Ugh guys I am sick again. I have no idea what's going on because I have not had blood pressure issues in the past. Now my diastolic number went up to 95. And the systolic was 120. For a couple if days I had seen readings like 108/93 etc . Then yesterday I woke up feeling awful lots of chest discomfort. My no was 130/110 wtf?? I had chest discomfort and a headache too so I went to the hospital. After hours if waiting they told it me wasn't that high (isn't the bottom number high? At the hospital it was 140/105). I have diabetes so I shouldn't play with out of the blue high BP anyway. The diuretic they have me on hasn't lowered it in a whole day. The bottom number is still 100. I am still not feeling good. And my family doctor said a high diastolic number isn't even treated these days. It's like would you rather kidney disease heart disease and stroke ? Anyway that didn't help much. I suspected my thyroid might be an issue. But my TSH was normal. I've read metformin can lower it too. So who even knows. I'm having a thyroid antibodies test soon . But this has been nerve wracking. I have lost 15 pounds. My cholesterol went down. My BG is great. If anything my BP that was normal should have stayed that way or gotten lower. And it's high. I also considered if I hadn't supplemented with electrolytes properly on keto but the electrolyte tests were fine too. I am confused and just feeling terrible physically. Nothing silent or asymptomatic about this no issue.

    2019 Morning Fasting BG Readings

    A 94 (5.22) for me today I think. As always, I fell asleep in front of the computer, and when I got up, I tested and I was at 94. I then went to bed, but I couldn't fall asleep. I laid there for several hours, then I decided to just get up. I didn't test when I got up because I didn't fall asleep, so I guess it's a 94. We are expecting another mixed winter storm starting late tonight (Tuesday) and lasting until early Thursday morning. They are calling for 5-8 inches (12.7cm - 20.3cm) of a mixture of snow, sleet, and freezing rain, depending on where you live. Whatever we get won't last long, since Thursday's high is going to be 48°F (3.3°C). Friday and Saturday's highs will be in the low to mid 40's (4.4's C), and Sunday it's going to rain with the high going to be 62°F (16.6°C).

    Question about legalities with my endocrinologist

    I didnt mean to sound like I was throwing negatives at you . On the contrary, I was trying to warn you about the fragile egos some of these health providers have, yet they have the power to make the clients very difficult. They can even have ones drivers license restricted by reporting the client as non compliant. Endos here are few and in high demand, so I realise we have to try & fit in with their quirks.
