Good for you!! SS Charlie. What an inspiration you are to turn things around like that for yourself. You are in a good place here. I don't know where I'd be if I hadn't connected with this forum. I wished I had more time in the day to read the wealth of information here. Welcome.

Hi,
I noticed after getting lower readings, I don't wake up often (sometimes not at all) at night to pee. I will know when my readings are high, my bladder feels full most of the time...anyone has this experience?

Yes, I had that experience back when my readings were constantly over 200. But no more, not since mid-April. But in my case, I must keep doing the finger-prick test with a glucose meter, many times every day, so that I can monitor closely. I would never trust my urgency to pee to be a direct sign of my blood glucose condition. Sometimes, some days, I just drink more water than other days, and that extra drinking can make me wake up at night to pee. Even when my glucose number is in a healthy range. I hope this helps!

Before I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes one of the symptoms I had was I was thirsty all of the time! Water tasted so good, and therefore I was up peeing all the time at night. At that time my A1c came in at 11.0....glad I went to the doctor and got things under control...

I have not reached the stage where I get thirsty all the time. I am a Pre Diabetic (hoping and fighting to get out of this rut) and I just notice the feeling of a full bladder at night when I had higher fasting readings. But you are right, it also depends if you have drank a lot of water during the day time. It is no indicator.

Ok, glad you have not been craving water. But I must comment on your doctors diagnosis of "Prediabetic". Although modern medicine recognizes this as a proper 'state of diabetes', it gives one a false since of security.

Diabetes in any state cannot be cured. Once you are diagnosed as prediabetic you have a problem with your insulin production and are subject to ongoing diabetic complications if you allow your blood sugar to exceed 140! And you must control this for the rest of your life or you will have complications. Welcome to our world, but learning LCHF lifestyle will give you control of this disease, allowing you to avoid potential serious complications later on...

Once a diabetic always a diabetic....that's the bad news....the Good news is you can take control of this disease....

Thanks for the reality check. Does that mean that taking some sinful stuff cannot be compensated with more exercise?
Is it possible to achieve NORMAL non pre diabetic readings if we stick to a strict regimen ?

If you eat high carb food, even in small amounts you liver will store some of those carb to release when it thinks you need it, like at night when you are sleeping or when you are exercising. If you want a shock, go a do a good hard workout, then check you blood sugar....bet you will be over 140 in the DANGER ZONE! Therefore, moderate exercise is a better choice for diabetics....exercise like low fat is not all it is cracked up to be just like eating low fat! Now I am not saying we should not exercise, but moderation in all we do is a better approach...use you meter to guide you, just like is says in Blood Sugar 101

Just this last week I've committed myself to my treadmill for 30 minutes a day and working up to one hour a day and I've been really upset my BG is actually worse than last week where I was just walking moderately for half hour around my neighbourhood...as I've always done even before the diabetics thing. You have just answered a question for me dive2live. Thanku.
