    Hi,   I have noticed something when taking my glucose that I would like to ask you about.  I have Type 2 and is basically controlled well with diet and exercise.  I rarely have to take medication (metformin).  However, sometimes when I wake in the mornings after fasting my blood glucose is in the 80-90's and then for some reason without eating or drinking anything (except 1-2 cups black coffee - no sugar or artificial sweetener) I take my glucose a couple of hours later and it has actually risen to 110-120's.   Shouldn't it remain the same are actually go down given these circumstances?   Thank you in advance for your time and effort in this matter.   Richard

    Here's the real answer. No one really knows shat the hell they're talking about when it comes to diabetes. If my doctor didn't have the ability to legally prescribe medications, I'd have no use for him at all. I have been Type 2 for over 10 years, and no two medical professionals are able to give me similar answers on what or how I should eat or not eat. The only time I have ever had an A1C less than 8 was after litterally starving myself for weeks on end, flying in the face of this retarded theary that we have to eat all day long.


    If you eat, your numbers go up. If you don't eat, your numbers go up.
