    RE: Fasting Sugar 140. 160 after 2 hours, 200 after 4 hours and 160 after 5 hours

    No, these readings are not OK. You need to discuss this with your doctor.

    RE: Fasting Sugar 140. 160 after 2 hours, 200 after 4 hours and 160 after 5 hours

    How long has that been going on?
    a day? a week? a month? a year?
    Hint: if it's a year, "not okay".

        To most diabetes drs, 7 represents "good control". It represents to them, "patients" who take their meds as instructed, eat, sensibly, and take reasonably good care of themselves...

        Personally, 7 is too high. I watched my father lose control of his diabetes after exercising "good control" for over 20 years. I learned not to follow in his (and his Newport Beach doctors) footsteps.

        I don't believe in "controlling" my blood sugar levels. That's beyond my pay grade. I exercise sound lifestyle fundamentals, 24/7/365, and let my body do all the "controlling". In a nutshell, I never took the "recommended" diabetes drugs. Note: This discussion applies to Type 2 Diabetes, only, btw.

        The rational being, if my body has built up a "resistance" to insulin, the last thing I want to do is give it more insulin (by taking drugs that increase production of insulin). That's like treating alcoholism with more alcohol. Sure, you may "look" sober...like you're in "good control"...you're still a drunk (which I was, too, until I stopped drinking alcohol).

        I reversed my T2D over 12 years ago. T2D is not a one way street; you can go forwards & BACKWARDS! The problem is, when we get old and comfy in our ways, we convince ourselves what we love and what we hate. We placed stupid limits on ourselves. We "complain" (about everything)...

        That's why the road for T2D appears one way. &, yhat's why doctors say T2D is a "progressive" disease.

        I assure you, that's a crock of...
