Hi all...So Today I joined the diabetic family by getting a brief diagnosis...! My mother has diabetes & I’ve helped her manange it ..so I’m not completely clueless..but starting this journey myself is a bit scary ! 😰Hoping to have a bit of support on here..
I’ve had an awful day ! I ended up having a asthma attack this morning at work and went to the ER..The dr there did blood work & a A1c because my blood sugar level was 213 !! & the A1c score was 140..
I do have a question I’m hoping someone here..might be able to help me with..I was under the impression that diabetes is controlled by diet & exercise etc..It’s obviously possible to have a high reading without eating anything that might contribute to the spike in a high reading...but why?? I’m puzzled as to what could be causing my blood sugar to be so high as Before the testing this morning I hadn’t eaten anything for over 12 hrs...I know that’s not a healthy thing but Ive been under high stress the last couple days and I haven’t been hungry so it’s obviously not food or what I’ve eaten that’s made it high ?? 😰 What else could cause it?? Advice would be appreciated!!!
