Apr 8, 2019 · Glucose Level of diabetics? in Diabetes/Endocrine System

Carol,I am in full agreement with you that stress plays a definite role on BS levels. Due to my wife's lengthy recovery, I was for sure undergoing a condition which could be easily labeled as extremely "STRESSFUL". I always discuss in details with my primary Dr. about BS levels & my own efforts in keeping them under control!! Perhaps both of us ignored the stress I was undergoing as a cause of deterioration of BS levels.
For the last few days,I am rigidly adhering to both "Diet Control" & exercise schedules. BS is improving & fasting is now in the range of 112-130mg/dl. Next week, I have scheduled a visit to my Dr. too & will definitely bring the effect of stress on BS levels.

Apr 3, 2019 · Non stable BS in Diabetes/Endocrine System

i am 77 years old diabetic,Type 2 afflicted by the disease 36 years ago.My BS had been controlled until 6 months back .Due to my wife's major surgery I was forced to give up my regimen of exercise & diet control too. As a result A1c shot up to 8.5.Since last 2 months,I am strictly back to my previous routine i.e strict diet control & almost 2 hours of cardio & weight exercise. I am taking 3 type of pills but fasting BS is mostly hitting 170-180 mg/dl.
Primary Dr. is not in favor of insulin. How could I achieve levels with in normal range"
