I have been on insulin a few weeks now, and I just can't get my sugar levels stable at all! My fasting numbers are about 4 - 6 ( 72 - 108) after breakfast is always above 10 (180), and similar through out the day! Everytime I speak to my nurse she ups my insulin dose, but it doesn't seem to be having any effect at all!

I am trying my hardest to eat well, and have cut out all snacks ect.. I just feel like I am failing here, and so worried about what all this must be doing to my baby

Sorry girls just needed an emotional vent to people who understand!

I am so sorry that you are going through this!! I myself am not on insulin; I hope the ladies who are on it will be able to help you. Do you not snack at all? It's recommended to eat at least two snacks a day. My endo wants me to have 3 small meals and 3 large snacks a day, with 30g of carbs at each. Waiting too long before eating will cause your blood sugar to fluctuate (and may cause you to eat too much at meals, giving you higher post-meal readings).

just lurking...i too have the same problem my numbers are all over the place!!! My doctor suggested eating smaller meals more often...like eating every 3-4 hours small portions of things. I always make sure to have a ssnack befor eI go to bed also...usually a string cheese and piece of fruit. It seems like (atleast with me) the more often I eat (small portions of course) the better my numbers are...just a thought and something to maybe try!!! Hope it helps!! Good luck!!

i understand where you are comming from. my numbers are also all over the place and i am worried about the baby.i am not on insulin yet but i do take glyburide. i try to watch what i eat and not eat much to raise my blood suger and when i do my blood suger droppes.if i eat enough to keep it from dropping that my numbers are high. i cant figure this out either. dr. says if i cant get it under control my next step is insulin.she told me to eat a small meal every two hours and to eat allot of protine so far its not helping my numbers!

I'm sort of there with you. Even low-carb snacks later at night don't seem to help my #'s (mine are about as high as yours, but I'm not on meds). I'm out of testing strips, so I can't even test for another 2 weeks until I get paid again (they are to expensive).

Good luck!
