In Reply to: Re: SUGAR LEVELS RISE WITHOUT FOOD posted by sandi on November 07, 2000 at 13:55:21:

I`m not on insulin, just pills. I don`t know what a person on insulin experiences, but I do know that fasting should be between 70-115. Mine tends to creep a bit when under stress, or if I need a change in meds. I`d talk to a CDE or your Dr. and see if there is something they can give you in conjuction with the insulin to even things out a bit. I don`t exercise much due to a bad knee, I can really only do upper body stuff. Also check your diet. Different foods affect different people in different ways (diagram that sentance). I can`t eat fruit without some protien to slow down the rise in sugars. Little things that you don`t really think have an impact really do. Jack


: jack,

: thank you so much - i really could not remember what i was told before but that makes sense. i wish i could my bs down more - in the am it runs 143 and gets higher during the day - i am on insulin too. i need to exercise also. thanks for the info and getting back to me.

: : : I AM STILL TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHY MY BLOOD SUGAR RISES WHEN I DO NOT EAT. I REALIZE YOU NEED YOUR MEALS AND SNACKS BUT AT FIRST I THOUGHT MY BLOOD SUGAR WOULD REMAIN THE SAME WITHOUT BREAKFAST AND A SNACK - I FOUND OUT OTHERWISE. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHY EXACTLY THIS HAPPENS?
: : Sandi,
: : Your liver stores Glucose. If you don`t eat, the natural production is interupted and the liver
: : dumps glucose into your system. If your on meds, the insulin in your system is able to handle
: : regular conversion by the the liver, but not a large influx at one time. I eat 6 small snacks a day
: : 1 regular meal, I always test under 120 and my average is between 100 - 105. Hope this helps.
