Diabetes Update - Food Diary

2004-03-14 11:16 p.m.

I had a good appt with the Dr. on Wednesday. My glucose level has been between 120-140 for the past couple of weeks since going up to 1500 mg. They need to be under 110 so we're close. He said it's still a tad too high but that he was excited about the changes I had made to my diet.

Plus I have now lost 15 1/2 pounds since 2-2. So he upped my glucophage to 2000 mg a day and I go back in a month for bloodwork and an appt. He said that my levels have dropped considerably since 2-10 and in a relatively short time so that within a month I should be able to find a manageable level. He said worst case scenario I have to add another medicine to my regimen. I'm still poking my finger 2 times a day though! OUCH! I've listed my food diary for last week below.
