I've been diabetic for a couple of years and have controlled my raised glucose by diet and medication (metformin + gliclazide) However, two weeks ago, a period of stress seemed to have shot this control to pieces. My readings went up to the high 20's and topped at 32.2 and it now ranges from 18 to 25. The medication seems to have lost any influence it once had. The other day I had a meal of plain salmon steak and broccoli - no carbs in sight really, and still my reading went up to 24.2 - and not much help from the meds to lower it. Has anybody else experienced this sudden loss of previously good control? Will it reverse itself?
