Well, its official, I failed my 3 hr a few weeks ago and met with the dietitian yesterday. I check my levels 4x a day and follow her diet for the next 8-9 weeks. However, my levels are much higher than the normal GD range and I am looking at taking insulin shots if I can't get it under control this week.
My questions are:
Any other March Mamas on insulin shots? How many per day? Is it painful?
If not, what are some of your higher levels? (My fasting levels so far have been 110, after meals have been 130-145)
Are you having problems getting enough blood for the strips? (I poke 4-5 times before I'm able to get a finger to bleed)
This morning I checked my levels 2 hrs after bkfast. they were high at 145. I figured I would try exercising for a bit to bring them down, but after a few minutes of exercise, the levels had shot to 165! I checked again on a different finger to see if this was misread, but it said 160.... How is this possible?? BS levels going UP after not eating??
