Oh my! I know you have been on the forum before. Why did you decide against changing your eating habits? I'm just curious, especially after reading so many who have had success?I have not been on a low carb diet. I have an appointment today after work to see someone to help me get my eating habits in check. I had a doctor appointment Monday with my primary doctor and she said that was a good idea. Maybe the levels could go down. I have had levels from 525 down to 189.
If you begin a low carb/high fat diet your numbers will fall quickly. They may not be perfect for a while, but they will definitely fall. 500's are just way too high. No wonder all you want to do is sleep! When my numbers were in the 300's all I wanted to do was sleep. I find that when I'm even up in the 200 range now I'm getting tired. Since going on insulin, I've definitely had my days of good and bad, but for the most part I have much more energy and I'm not coming home from work and taking 2-1/2 hr naps anymore. I feel better too. Although I struggle on a daily basis, I still eat low carb and I find that I do not miss those carbs all that much. If I get a really bag craving, I will eat something starchy with the least amount of carbs that I can, just to satisfy that craving. You can make things that are very low carb that satisfies that craving as well. You just have to be diligent and willing to do it. We are all here for support. Try eliminating all breads, pasta, rice, and potatoes as well as corn from your diet for two weeks. See how your body and numbers respond in that time. Trust me...once you start seeing lower numbers you will begin to want them more and more; better numbers that is not carbs!Naynay, I thought I was doing right by getting the flatbread, boy was I wrong. Hopefully, I can get some help today on how to eat. But do you think my numbers can get that low that quick? That is scary. Thanks for the good input.
