    Rising blood sugar

    How come, and this happens often, if I check my blood sugar 2 hours after eating and I check it a few hours later before the next meal, it is considerably higher. And I have not taken in any carbs. Generally just water and perhaps black coffee but mostly just water. This has happened a multitude of times the last few months.

    At our wits end...

    Our 22-year-old daughter has had Type 1 diabetes since she was three years old. Over the past eight weeks, she has been hospitalized seven times, sometimes in ICU. A few of those times, she was in DKA...one time, it was almost fatal. Her symptoms always start with intense, uncontrollable vomiting. The doctors' diagnosis is always "diabetes mismanagement." But her A1C is always good. She has had to drop out of school and move back home, where we have been monitoring her diet, sugar levels....

    Important query regarding Sugar Test

    I am non diabetic. Female, age 32, height 5 ft 7" and weight 58 Kgs. I keep my weight in check with a proper diet. I have a big sweet tooth and eat a lot of sweets. A recent Sugar test had the following results - GLUCOSE, FASTING, PLASMA - 102 HBA1C- 5.4 MEAN PLASMA GLUCOSE - 108.3 Does this mean I am prone to diabetes? Will I get diabetes soon?

    Cost of insulin

    I got a new job and they said they would have benefits on the first day. Went to go refill my prescription 2 bottles of Lantus and 2 bottles of Humalog and the price was almost $1240, for both prescriptions so about $620 for each one they were pretty close to the same amount and this is a one month supply. So I had to find $1240 to get my prescription and the insurance company would mail me a check for the amount. Why are the prices so high?

    Do I have diabetes? Curious about numbers

    Today I was thinking about my health and was curious to see how my blood sugar levels are. So when I was at the store I brought a device with the test strips. I probably did over 20 different samples. I ate a lot of crackers and pretzels around 130-2pm. I started testing around 5 and finished around 530 just to get a string of numbers and to get the hang of it. I’ve never been diagnosed with diabetes or have symptoms but here are my values. 137 130 203 215 100 110 90 112 129 142 118 145 118 129 145....
