Re: Concerns

Congratulations on the weight loss. That is great. It sounds like you have a bit of reactive hypoglycemia and this is evening out your a1c. You might try cutting back on the carbs a bit at meals. This will help prevent the spike and the subsequent sleepiness. The trick is to eat to your meter. After a known carb meal, test at the 2 hour mark and see what your sugar level is. If it is high you will know what needs to be limited or eliminated.
