New diagnosis of Diabetes; want to improve by evening habits
Good evening. I am a retired RN, and although it seems like I should understand this disease, and know how to take care of myself, I am a patient , who is dealing with a new medical problem, and not really sure what to do. I was recently diagnosed ( about 8 weeks ago.) A1C was 13.5 and the first blood sugar check was 480. I am better controlled today, but only because I am on Tresiba. I am having a hard time with food control at night, I have always been a person who snacked in the evening, I am on the high end of normal for my BMI, but I have a family history with Diabetes. I am active and have always taken walks with my dog daily. 2-3 miles. Also biking and swimming. So I think my activity is good, but I need help with my evening bad habits.
