  • Your breakfast contains too much carb.What is your fbs?

  • Today it was 115

  • It is obvious that the spike in bs is due high carb.please go for low carb. diet. Nothing to worry,you are quite alright.

  • I am concerned at the delayed effect of the tablet.

  • nane,

    not as a permanent measure,

    but as a data collecting experiment for a day or two,

    can you shift the one idli and tablet to 7 am and the idli plus half vada as usual at 9 am. and see what happens.

    140 ppbs at 9 can be expected and at pre lunch it has to at 100!!

    these predictions may not often work out.

    or else , a change in the drug may become necessary.

  • Please see todays result.

    9.00 am one medium onion and 2 eggs scramble, 1 idli

    (1/2 tab glynase mf)

    10.45 coffee w.o. sugar

    11.00 am BS 96

    11.15 am 1 idli

    1.00 pm BS 115

    Looks good?

  • But it is unfortunate that people at home doo not reconcile to this. Food is mostly rice and rice related. While on some days we manage on our own, we get bored after some time stick to medicine. ADA spy at home?

  • so

    that has worked out.

    you can now solve yourself.

    i will crystalise the principle.

    split meal and split medicine ,both will work. but in t1dm split medicine will invite more injections .

    good luck

  • See this:

    Yday night 10.00pm (11/2). 2 chapathis, cucumber salad (1 med.) 1 cup rasam, 1 cup butter milk, NO MEDICIne).

    Morning 8.00 am FBS 130

    1 cup coffee w.o. sugar.

    9.15 am: 2 egg scramble with onion. No medicine.

    11.15 am PP BS 110

    Lesson: cut chapathi to one

  • Why don't u try cinnamon, get few sticks of that, dry it well and grind them in a mixy.... take half teaspoon of in half an hour before your breakfast ..may be with little water, then test your sugar, it will be normal, besides, u must control your diets and avoid Potatoo and such things, surely half an hour jogging daily , that is most important... then u are secured a lot....but u should keep it up. Wish u all the best.

  • 13/2 FBS 128 (medfree - last night chapathi size to relook)

    13/2 9.15 am breakfast of tomato, apple and cucumber salad.

    11.15 am PP BS 122

    Reason for posting in the forum isto commit for Low carb diet and to manage w.o. medicine. I need to bring my fasting and post lunch BS under control. Suggestions. welcome

  • 2 eggs scramble is giving better glucose management than salad and more nutritious except fiber part.

  • Yes. But for variety it shd be ok. May be more of cucumber and less of fruits may help. And 122 by all standards is normal BS level

  • 14/2 Fasting 135 (Previous night dinner, one dosa with greens, cucumber and papaya.

    14/2 PPBS 136 (breakfast forced to take rava uppuma allegedly with lots of vegetales (onion, capscicum, tomato) ) Took only small qty


    Any suggestion for bringing down Fasting sugar?

  • 15/2 fasting sugar 114. Dinner predominantly of vegetables soup and vvery little rice( 1tbs) just to please the home ministry, and butter milk. My PP sugar also has come below 120. And post lunch also coming below 130. All with diet and no medicines. WOW! These numbers were not achieved earlier even with medicine and also suffered frequent low sugar. Now that fear also gone. Getting clear what not to eat and also educatibg home ministry to fall in line and understand my diet requirement. Target FBS <100.
