how to avoid diabetes complications

I am trying sooooo hard but nearly always disappointed. I am waiting for a miracle because nothing else seems to work. My diet is way strict er than ever before and yet it doesn’t behave like it used too when I was less strict back in the day. I am certain there are factors other than food causing thisMy insurance co. won’t pay for my Januvia any more so I know mine will be high again!!I HATE that an insurance company makes medical decisions for me, Yes waiting for a1c results from my endorceroligest makes me nervous, scared, all of the above, Just had mine done Tuesday.Got the results .It was 5.6. Better than I thought it would be, Thursday 7.1 But Endocrinologist never happy, I see highs and lows! No kidding, Yeah, happens to me too. The last time, it was because no insulin was coming out of my pen. Something was up with my needle and had to change it. I was so upset, because I felt so sick and that’s all that was wrong. If you inject yourself, maybe double check to see if your insulin is coming out enough or even at all.
Maybe there is a pattern. On your high days is that when you are at work? Do you do a manual or office job? Look at your activity levels on the days you are higher than normal. I’ve found that it’s not always just based on what you eat. Exercise has kept my levels fairly good and stable and the fact I have a physically demanding job also helps. When I have my 4 off I keep busy with the gym and doing other activities. It’s just finding a good balance of things really trial and error really to you feel comfortable in being able to stabilise your levels. But don’t be scared of running a little high now and then, For me, I get periods where my bs is lower than usual and I have loads of hypos. Never a clear explanation. Then, when I’ve adjusted all my insulin to allow for it, it all goes back to normal. Keeps us on our toes, this condition, I’m a type 2. There is usually something going on when my blood sugar runs a bit high for a while. Stress, illness, excitement, travel, etc.. It never goes out of “acceptable” range, it just higher than usual. Its one of those things that I note and move on.
Every day different you can only do what you can make plan for your day keep track of patterns up high two days increase insulin, Diet is a BIGGIE. You need to watch what you eat and if you take a insulin before eating you need to do this also. Other wise your bsl will be elevated. I know from experience.What also might help is to write down everything you eat or drink and sugar ct. That way you can go back and look to see if your eating something high in sugar or carbs, You will get use to it. It takes awhile to Train our minds and bodies to do something so different then what they have been doing, Good Luck. I wish you Well, Unfortunately it’s so different for everyone and type 1’s have different issues to type 2 etc etc… go and see your endocrine doctor and they can look into it for you. Remember what works for one doesn’t always work for another… don’t give up though help is there for you.. oh and don’t listen to Leo, he obviously doesn’t understand the meaning of support.
It happens to me when I do not take good care of my food in those occasions. For diabetics is important whar we eat if we do not want it happens, My diabaties got diagnosed 3 months ago.when it got diagnosed my sugar was 364.doctor advised me very high potency medicine.but with cure and medicine my sugar level reduced to very normal level.it’s less than 100 fasting and 110-100 without fasting mostly I mean never increases.even my doctor lessened my medicine 2 months ago.I m 51 years old.I m confused I m a diabetic patient or had diabetic attack accidently.please advise me, Food and activity journal is a good idea. You can get apps for it too. We’re all different. I can eat a no-no and be fine for four hours but over the course of the next two days be not so good.
yes for 27 odd years on and off as you say more direction in your question would be nice like has it happened yes it has would you like to be more specific ADMIN so we could give more support through more direct answers if given more direct questions smh sigh you could look into natural bio rhythms of the bodies starting there is always a good place and then branch out to more specifics it breaks down like this people have more or less ten mostly eleven days of feeling good and jumping out of bed followed ny by ten or eleven of not so good days but it doesnt happen visibly it happens slowly so it goes mostly unnoticed by non diabetic and diabetic comunity .i do not sugest you ajust your basal or bolus for this at all puts yourself at great risk specialy if you have to use your fight or flight system during these unusual readings .just cope with them rationaly if you know your set amount of calisthenics as all type one diabetis should do that exact amount of push ups after corectly streaching to prevent musce tear to correct this to your standard bsl again you willl need to be more clear on what your question is aimed at not only does it happen to anyone else is a very broad based question .yes ofcourse it does.
See right there is ur problem. Ur even to lazy to type the entire word blood sugar level. Stop being lazy and get things done, Mine does this periodically as well, after 40 years I’ve never been able to figure it out, Lots of water and walking I find keeps mine down and with fairly good eating practises, I tank water all day long. If I ever slack off it shows up in my numbers quickly. Takes time to get regulated again, Drugs will not cure diabetes. Drugs by their very definition alter the natural processes of the mind or body. You need to heal your body by
