Fasting Glucose Levels are Soaring

As I’ve stated in a previous post, I am Type 2 diabetic and my last A1C was 9.1. NOT a good number.  So this morning I woke up and took my fasting blood glucose, like a good little diabetic should, and it was 260.  Ya’ll… that’s way high.  If you are pre-diabetes (and my goal!) fasting levels are 100 to 125.  Above that… ew. And as much as I hate to admit it, that’s the first time I’ve checked my fasting levels in over a month (maybe even two).  Yeah. I know.  Stop judging! 😛

Last night I did have a few margaritas which are a sugary mixed drink and probably influenced that value significantly.  However, I don’t know how significant that increase from normal might have been because I’ve failed to take (and track) my fasting levels for so long.  Let’s get this straight.  As much as I want to lose weight (and continually fail at it), my number one goal is to lower that fasting number.  I do not want to be put on insulin.

So I’m going to commit to tracking my fasting glucose daily and posting it.  I’m currently looking at some graphing widgets I might use for here so I can easily update it.  Wish me luck as I try to get this number down!  Current: 260, Goal : 120
