I was diagnoised with Type 2 in Aug-08...#s = 271 when disgnoised. I'm taking 500mg Metformin, twice daily. I'm obese; however, lost 60 lbs since Aug
Doing all the right things: exercise, diet, doctor visits, etc. My numbers have been running 90 - 100 before breakfast & dinner, and reading 145 or less 1 hr after eating.
In the beginning, I noticed #'s would go up 10 to 20 points while sleeping. Then noticed exercise elevated my numbers to 150 or so. Now, I found that if I get up, check numbers, don't eat for a hour or two and do and do no work-just sit and surf the web (in other words...be a bum before eating breakfast or taking Metfomin), then recheck #s - the numbers have spiked...from 90~100 to 190~250!!!
Why, if I haven't eaten anything, or exercised, do the numbers spike?
