Hi! I'm new around here, and have been lurking, but haven't posted yet. This seems like such a helpful board!
So I've worked with a dietitian before, taken nutrition classes, kept up with the latest in fitness & nutrition in magazines...
But since being diagnosed about 2 weeks ago, I feel so confused. I've been testing BS for about a week and a half and I've never gone over the amount of carbs "allowed," yet my post-meal numbers for lunch & dinner have often been high. I made the realization after a couple days that I do need to make sure I am careful of my fat & protein intake as well.
I feel like I'm doing what I can, but it's not good enough. If I could start over again, I'd be logging what I eat (my dietitian said not to worry about it, just to count carbs) so I can pay closer attention to what is bad for me.
It just seems like so much of this is trial and error and I don't know how long the doctor will let me try. I faxed my numbers in today, and am waiting to hear if they are concerned.
This is stressful! Anyone else in a similar boat? I see lots of people here with high fasting numbers, but not as many with high post-meal numbers. :-
