    Default Gd anyone?

    Anyone else dealing with gd? Mine makes no sense. For example, my glucose was 80 before dinner, I'm supposed to test one hour from the end of the meal... So I did, it was 69! I had mcdonalds fries and a quarter pounder (half bun)... Yes I know not the healthiest but hubby was out of town yesterday and today so he brought a treat dinner. Last night I had an icee freeze for snack (think Italian ice) and it was 84 an hour later! It's making me nuts!!

    ---Lurker--- are they sure you have gd? I have gd this pregnancy and also with my second one and if I ate those it would jump my numbers way high. Sounds like its not gd at all. Do you know what your numbers were when you failed?

    Oh I failed (not sure of exact numbers but it wasn't even close for the three hour.i took my glucometer with me, the fasting was 120's, one hour was ok and it went up from there)... Did with my second too. I'm pre- diabetic with a huge family. History of type two... My fasting numbers are the worst (110's- 120's) which seem to be linked to sleep patterns in my opinion. I do nph at night and it helps.

    Totally understand those failing numbers on the 3 hour. Sounds like mine although my numbers are just weird. What is NPH? Ive got a huge family history of being diabetic. Have you talked with your dr about your numbers and that you can eat those things and have your numbers go down instead of being up. I know sometimes with gd and diabetics in general your numbers can do weird things depending on your body and what you eat.

    It's been 3 weeks... Tracked medless the first week, only highs were fasting so we started nph (time release insulin) at night... Now it's been 2 weeks medicated. I see my doc again Thursday, so I'll mention it. With my last we did nph twice a day (am/pm) and regular once a day (all self drawn doses so easy to change, based on numbers). I used to be a med giver (Qmap) at work and had a diabetic kid (type1) so it's easier for me to do the self draw/mixing than one of those pen things. Don't think I've ever seen it above 160 regularly (and that tends to be right after a meal or if I mis calculate my carbs/protein) and never above 190 (once and it was a miscalculated double serving of carbs).

    Sorry, I can't help as I have no experience in that area, but those numbers do see odd. I thought they were supposed to be high if you had GD, not low.

    I guess we will see what your doc says. Maybe the meds are working too well?

    That's the weird thing... Lately the morning numbers have been "high" (more like my normal).... Ie it was 115 at 4:30 this morning and 120 at 7:30 when I woke up.
