Nitty-

 

Per American Diabetes Association a person with diabetes should keep there blood glucose levels  at 70-130 (5.0-7.2 mmol/l)before meals, 180 ( less than10.0 mmol/l) below after meals.  There are many ways to bring your blood sugar down but it varies from person to person.  You should contact your Doctor if you are noticing high blood sugars for more than 2 days. He may need to make medication adjustments, You may need to exercise or eat less carbs.  The best answer is to consult your Doctor on how to get your blood sugar down.

I'm not sure about during the day but eating 6-8 ounces green beans (canned is okay) before bedtime will give a better morning reading. The green beans prevent insulin storing in fat at night. I was sceptacle when I read this but every time I do this my morning readings are normal. I will add that I am not on insulin.

Of course there are some whose diabetes is harder to manage than others. Mine isn't raging yet.

I got this information from a holistic doctor and it works for me.
