I am confused.
Type 2 diabetic diagnosed 2 years ago. On metformin not insulin.
One of my neighbours is also diabetic type 2.
She says he blood sugar is usually around 13.
Mine is slightly high. If I take it first ting in the morning before having anything to eat or drink it is usually between 8 and 9. I think that is a little high.
Trying to get myself back on track with it.
I do not smoke but do drink alcohol. About 3 or 4 glasses of wine every week and occasionally a small glass of sherry, that is all.
For the last 6 months my main problem has been that I have been underweight so have been trying to put on some weight which i am now doing. But putting on the weight has increased my blood sugar levels. Swings and roundabouts really a very difficult thing to balance. Now that I have gained the weight I will try and be a bit more careful what I eat and hope I can maintain the weight whilst reducing blood sugar levels a bit. Most people who are diabetic are overweight. Trust me to be different!!!
Thanks for listening to my story.
