Are these high blood sugars recent, or it has been going on for a while.
If it is very recent she should visit her doctor to see if there is an infection or illness or any cause for sudden increase.
If this has been going on for a while then the following measures should be taken, preferably in close coordination with her doctor and with appropriate and regular monitoring of blood sugars.
1. Reduce carbohydrate and sugars intake in her diet.
2. Increase exercise - 30 minutes of moderate exercise after each meal will be helpful.
3. Increase insulin dose appropriately until blood sugars are control.
hello i am not a dr but i know some thing about diabetics if u use insulin it will be control blood glucose level.because insulin is a safest option for the treatment of t2dm compare to tablets.First u should control ur carbohydrates.But u can eat more than 5 times.30 min swimming is a best exercise for diabetic patients.
I am no doctor, however , what it has worked for me, a long term diabetic 2,
to me all man made medicines, Insulin, Metformins... won't help T2 much.
the amount of carb intake is the most contributing factor in high level of blood sugar .
I would reduce my carbs intake drastically , eat less and less high carb foods like white rice, no soda drinks...Good luck
this is NOT rocket science Carbohydrates raise BG ALL carbs raise BG.
Insulin lowers BG
finding the balance is what testing BG is for.
if BG is too high then ether too many carbs and/or too little insulin.
Mix insulin's IE 70/30 are VERY difficult to get consistent good BG. ask about putting them on a BOLAS/BASEL insulin regime. Much easier to control.
book to read; using insulin by John Walsh will help a lot.
I am not a Doctor, but I have been controlling sugar levels without proper monitoring or medicines for two years. I am Type II and have had some problems maintaining my levels below 200. In past exercise and watching what I ate was my controlling factor. I have recently started 1000 mg of Metformin and so far for about week count been still over 200, no major drop. I went out walk again (slowed down during winter months), and just the walk I took my sugar dropped to 170.
