Are you on a pump? ...
No. Diet controlled only.
Do you control your diabetes just with diet? How many carbs a day?
I have found that my body cannot process very many grams of carbs at one time - 8-10g is about my limit if I want to eliminate a spike (which I try to keep to below 120 but sometimes goes up to 130). I have a sluggish 2nd phase insulin response plus mild gastroparesis, and it can take up to 3 hours for my BG to begin to go down.
Everyone's metabolic process is different. Only testing will confirm how many carbs per meal or day a T2 diabetic can handle.
Your A1C is very low, much lower than I have read we senior citizens should have but I envy you 100%
Why should diabetic seniors have a higher A1C than non-diabetic seniors. I have heard this mentioned before and I think it is nonsense. I'm not on insulin or meds where I could go too low.
I don't think my current A1C will be as low as it was last year because I haven't been quite as strict as I was then. But I'm sure it will be below 5.5.
Eating is my downfall, I know altho I am not particularly heavy, I do like my snacks in the evening and they have high carbs.
I totally relate. But I keep my snacks as close to no-carb as I can. I'll often eat bacon at night. Nuts are my downfall, especially almonds, because of the fact that I will eat too much and the total carbs is more than I should be having at one time.
If I could eat dairy or eggs, my snacks would be more varied such as sliced cheese or deviled eggs or cream-cheese fat-bombs.
