I'm still having sweating spells and headache. should I be worried
Yes you should be worried, are you watching your carb intake? My sugar was almost 400 when they diagnosed me, I felt horrible, I watch everything I eat and very rarely does my sugar go above 120 after a meal. Put yourself on a very restrictive diet and see if it drops. Good Luck...I know the battle!
delores65, I agree with JSY1221. I used to have blood sugar readings constantly above 160 and also high, unhealthy Cholesterol and Triglycerides readings, and really felt poorly with constant breathing problems, weakness, swelling, nerve problems, etc.
I went on a very healthy, small meal, low calorie, low Glycemic, frequent eating diet and, almost immediately, I experienced improvements to my health and blood sugar. I also started a demanding daily exercise program, for which I am doing an average of 300 steppers, 200 weight curls, 150 weight lifts, 75 back lifts, 1 hour power walk and 50 pushups per day.
Over a long period of time I continued to improve and, near age 70, I feel better than I did 30 years ago. So..... Diet and Exercise does work, at least it does for me!
