a year ago my #s were all out of sight--BP/ BG chlestrol

so with the help of meds I got BP down to low to mid 100s over 65/71 I was actually proud of this #!!!!


this last week Ive started testing the BG and now my BP is going up

130s to 140s over 75/80

BG hasnt been to bad--Im still experimenting to see what I can eat
besides nut berries and bunny food

weight too has been creeping up--I gained 3 lbs since my last dr app
the last week of July

Im cutting back again on what Im eating but its not working anymore

I cant cope anymore with all these #s issues--Im trying so hard and nothing is working--Im back to feeling cranky and miserable--just when things are starting to settle down a bit

any idea on why the BP would go up with testing BG--

actually Im thinking its because Im testing as the time is getting closer to test I can feel my heart racing!!!


anyway to get this to stop


please help--I can feel myself breaking down!!! again


thanks to one and all

I drink regular soda since I cant stand the taste of diet--it leaves a

bad after taste I know not a good reason but.....

Im alittle confused as to why some people here say Im diabetic--

I had one high (7.1 a1c) and it wasnt even all that high isnt normal

6.5 or so there has to be more to being a diabetic then 1 higher then normal test.

and no Im not in denial since Ive been experimenting with testing

I have been able to handled soda and other treats not as much as a year ago--it was nothing for me to eat 6 cookies at one time!!!!

and 2 or 3 sodas a day!!!!

thanks for all the advice tips sholders to lean on and concerns

I really do appreciate it

take care all

Ive been testing mainly out of curiosity but since Ive been testing my BP has gone up--

as the time to test gets closer I can feel my heart pumping away!!!

that cant be good either--before I started testing my BP was low

100s now its in the 130s to 140s range--

I have to find a happy medium with all these #s its really driving me crazy

I started last yr with an a1c of 7.1 3 months later it was 5.9

and I still ate some sweets and reg soda (I cut back some but not alot)

what exactly determines if your a diabetic--there has to be more to it then one high a1c

thanks-- please just be patient with me
