Uh Oh.....Blood sugar way high....
Thursday, April 19, 2012
So, a few minutes ago I was talking with someone who works with me and I said something like "man, I was in a really bad mood before, I could have just spit nails" and she said that's what it sometimes feels like when her blood sugar is off because of her diabetes. She has Type 1 diabetes and has been dealing with it her whole life. So I mentioned that a few years ago mine tested high once but then the next time it was fine. She asked if I wanted her to test my blood sugar, that she does it all the time for people just so they can see. So I said sure!!
We went in her office and she tested me and the number showed 189!!!!! We both gasped. Oh my goodness. Now, I just ate lunch so maybe that had something to do with it, but wow, that number is really really high.
We're going to test me again in the morning after fasting over night to see what number I get. And I'm calling the doctor today for a physical appointment. And if nothing else can make me wake up to the fact that I have to drop this belly fat and get in shape, this sure can. Wow.
Addendum: Instead of waiting overnight we tested me at 3:30 before I left for work. My blood sugar was back in a normal range. So, not great it was so high, but since it was within two hours of lunch, we attribute the high level to that based on our research. I'm still going to get a physical but at least I feel better than I did about it after the first test. You should never try to diagnose yourself!!!
