The reason your blood sugar went up after not eating and shoveling snow is fairly simple. When you wake up your pancreas and liver are already operating at waking levels.

Your liver then released a larger amount of glucose causing the high. You should always eat a SMALL HEALTHY breakfast before starting an activity. Your blood sugar will then maintain a more consistent level.

Hi Matt,

I'm curious what you define a healthy breakfast as. I eat pretty much the same thing every morning - a scrambled egg made with cream, 3 strips bacon, a couple of wedges of cheese, and a few strawberries or blueberries in a little bowl w/ almond milk. It rarely varies, and luckily, I'm not tired of it yet.

I usually eat two eggs and I put spinach in it and onion and garlic and mushrooms and a cup of black coffee.Not every morning but most.That's about 200cals.I don't like to eat first thing in the morning.I get up at 8am and take a walk with my daughter we walk for an hour.Then I come back and mess around doing something than about 1pm I get around to eating.

Hi Kathy,

Remember that it's not calories you need to worry about, it's the total carb count. All the veggies you're adding to your eggs have carbs and could be spiking you.

Garlic (16,3 carbs for each 100 gram) have much carbs, but we seldom use so much of it that it will spike us. Onion has 5,7 carbs for each 100 gram. Mushroom has 2,5 carbs for each 100 gram and spinach has only 0,4 carbs for each 100 gram.
I am never afraid of using those veggies because I cant manage to eat so much that it would spike me.
But if you are afraid it would spike you even if it in a normal 2-egg brekfast wont give you more than about 4 carbs,eggs included, I would add some bacon because the fat, at least in my body, slows the carbs down.

Default My Breakfast

Moosha,
Sorry for the delay, I lost my internet last night.
I am Type 1 and I have with Dawn Phenomenon, My breakfast consist of 6-7 grams digestable Carbs. My breakfast usually consist of a salad starting with 1-2 oz spinach raw (which is all fiber) then 1/2 cup Cottage Cheese and Fish/Chicken. When salmon is on sale I buy it and smoke it myself, if salmon isn't on sale I use artificial crab/lobster. If all the fish is to expensive I settle for baked chicken. Also If I am really hungery I will add some diced Mozzarella cheese. If my morning blood sugar is <80 I will dice up a very small apple and but on top of it.
Matt

But thanks to this forum, which opened my eyes to the danger of Glipizide, I started low-carbing and exercising. I ultimately took myself off Glipizide (without even asking my md first), and now he is fine with it because I have the A1c to back it up.

Default veggies for breakfast

Sorry, but disagree about veggies having carbs that would overload his diet...veggies have fiber and fiber is needed to make your diet healthy for your bowels...fiber also will slow down digestion and knock off some of the carbs...but to say that mushrooms, onions and spinach have carbs to the point of being unhealthy is not true at all...I think the whole picture of what he is eating is not being told...do you eat anything at all with sugar?...or bread?...

Glipizide is a sulfonylurea drug and it burns out your beta cells by forcing them to produce more insulin. If you're already taking insulin, there's no need to use Glipizide. If you aren't using insulin, it would be better to go on insulin than to use Glipizide. If you have insulin resistance, then use metformin, not Glipizide.

Instead of adding posts to everyone else's thread, you need to tell us more about yourself and how you manage your diabetes. Go over to the introduce yourself board, and post your numbers (A1c, fastings and postprandials) and your management methods.
