Back a month, lost 12 pounds, fasting blood sugar in 130s

A little over a month ago, I got a scare when my increasing A1C was galloping upwards and my fasting blood sugar was in the mid-300s. No more fooling around for me. On to Jardiance and back to MFP it is.

This morning my blood sugar was in the 130s (as the endocrinologist said we should aim for) and I've lost 12 pounds. Still well over 100 pounds to go but I do know how to do this and the blood sugar issue is an effective dope slap for me.

Hubby had a stroke a couple years ago so I'm taking up the slack when his loss of dexterity, mobility, and planning ability get in his way. I've got to stay able not just for me but for him. The only way to do that is to get healthy!!

    Hi, does anyone know how long sugars spike upward when starting a alternate day fasting regimen? I know why I just don’t know for how long it will happen. Thanks, Dave~

    Try intermittent fasting and it should help with bood sugar levels. Constant eating from time to time increases insulin which causes fat storage. On you tube search for Dr Jason fung or Dr stan ekberg. Great tips.

    I have lost weight and was able to completely get off meds as my carb intake reduced and so did need for metformin.
