I have an awful problem with my control that TOM. I'm either too low or too high. I never know which way it will swing. I've asked a couple of Drs about it and some say they've heard of it, some not. The ones that have couldn't really give me an explaination for it though. I did some research of my own and this is what I've found.

My period always affects my blood sugar. Sometimes my BG goes up the day I start, but some months my blood sugar seems to go up three or four days BEFORE I start my period and the elevated numbers last well into the third or fourth day. Fortunately, I'm never really high, but I hate when I follow my diet so carefully and wake up with fasting levels 15 points higher than usual.

that's a good article Amy
It may explain my recent problem where I was wondering why I was getting hypos all day. Damn hormones! I'm on the pill too... so maybe this interferes with insulin?... very interesting.

Essentially that means the same amount of carbs eaten during the wrong time will spike you. In the chart below good carb processing hormone weeks are green.
I don't suppose you have a link to the image you posted. It's so tiny I can't read all the words. Thank you!

Attached! Sorry but file size is such that the resolution isn't great.

I re-typed the document and the attached jpg is a bit bigger. Hope it helps.

Judy did ask me to say that the time periods in the last row should be adjusted to reflect YOUR own period intervals which can be very individual. As always "one size doesn't fit all"

Judy, I have to agree with Shanny. The info you posted was most helpful. I'm eons past those days, but your information explained so much about what was happening to me back then!

Not looking forward to this!! I have only had one since being diagnosed because I was on depo to control migraines... I was very regular before though. This is kind of depressing but I guess I will have to wait and see how my sugars act before getting too bummed out.
