Default Sudden hike in BG

I was doing fairly good with 1g Metformin in the morning, and regular gym.

Recently, I somehow gained some weight. I can see that my BG going beyond 200 after dinner. Fasting sugar is a bit higher.

I will go to the doc for sure. But, can you please share your experiences for this kind of a situation.

Is it because I gained 3 kgs? Probably something went wrong with the diet.

Is it time to change the medicine? Or increase the dosage? I was detected just 2.5 years back.

There are probably several factors here but my instinctive reaction is that you are still eating a diet that is too high in carbohydrate.

Stating the obvious - a high carb meal will push your post meal figures up and will tend to "encourage" you to have a little bit more - and that will push your weight up, which in turn will help increase your insulin resistance (which will increase as your blood glucose climbs anyway). The combination will be pushing you into a viscous circle of increasing numbers.

My suggestion? Go back to square one - and have another look at How to Lower Your Blood Sugar in Blood Sugar 101

Just changing (i.e. increasing) medication may help - but long term, you place yourself on a path that is less than ideal by doing so unless you have absolutely no other option. is offline
