Good for you. Myself, I painted my YBE&trade's bedroom yesterday and my thighs are so stiff from crouching down that I can barely walk today. YBE asked me if it was because of my diet, asking if I should be eating more protien. I take in about 120-180g of carbs per day, eating 60g at lunch and dinner and maybe a light breakfast, afternoon or evening snack. I eat a decent amount of meat and while I do not look for fruits and vegetables, I do eat them.

I only weigh 145lbs (on a 5'9" frame) and my morning sugars are usually in the high 120's and low 130's. I have thought I ate pretty well. I feast on a combination of frozen foods (not a great cook), prepared meals, diet drinks and the occasional junk food snack. I also work out on a treadmill a few times a week, feel lethargic sometimes (especially in the morning), and have been more or less housebound having been unemployed the last 5 months.

Fuskie,

my morning sugars are usually in the high 120's and low 130's.

Is this your fasting numbers or your after breakfast numbers?. My fasting has to be <95 which it has been in the low 80's. My after breakfast numbers has to be <120 after 2 hours. Mine has been 96-114. What really helps keep it down is eating just a little protein. It makes such a huge difference. I only have to take after lunch and dinner since those were my higest numbers.

Some people, me for example, have high morning blood sugars because our blood sugar rises in the two or three hours before waking. My blood sugar at 3:30 AM will usually be about 75-85. (The few times I have awakened at that time and gone back to sleep.) Upon arising, about 7:30 my blood sugar will be about 125. My doc says that some people are just this way and it's no big deal so long as we have good hemoglogin A1C readings. I need to check this out with a specialist but wonder if anyone has heard similar things.

This is the same boat I am in. My doc is pleased with the readings based on the A1C.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

I knew you could do it! I'll bet it's starting to become a way of life to consider how many carbs there are in something before putting it into your mouth. Keep it up!

I'm joining you in the happy dance.

My Doc said glucophage is supposed to control high night-time blood sugar & that was why he prescribed it. He didn't say anything about blood sugar that rises in the last few hrs of sleep.
