My A1c went from 7 to 8.4. I’m so sad. Struggling to keep sugars down. I do water aerobics and exercise in the gym. Watch what I eat. Frustrating.

Mine’s gone way up. And it is frustrating. But I won’t give up. And neither should you. Read Dealing with Diabetes Burnout, hang out here, and keep up trying. Maybe see whether you can get some DSMT classes or review sessions under your insurance coverage to “brush up your Shakespeare,” so to speak.
Hey I’m the end it’s not a 13. This disease sucks and is up and down all the time. Just start a fresh and know that you can do this cause you have done it before.
Unfortunately it’s more than food and exercise that make our levels spike. Hormones are a big thing, that may or may not have had something to do with it too.
Just remember don’t get to hung up on numbers. I put myself into the icu for being so controlled by numbers that I was checking at least 11 times a day, I was having lows at least 6 times a day and was generally unwell. Just because I wanted perfect numbers.
Any attempt to manage this disease is a win. Some people will be better st it and other worse but if you keep trying your better off than you would be if you do nothing ❤️ keep going
Don’t stress about it, that will raise your blood sugar. Take your time, let your body get used to changes. A1C rising could be a sign of an infection somewhere in your body. Listen to your body. Mine did go down a little but not as much as the doctor thought. Well, 5 days later I was in emergency for a week with diverticulitis. 3 weeks later I was back i the hospital with abscesses in the colon, flesh eating bacteria, and some sepsis. I was in for over 3 weeks due to those issues until that part of the colon was taken out, then we were able to lower the blood sugar.
Same with me, had to give up bread, rice, pasta, potatoes – all the good stuff but its working
Please keep trying. Two things really have helped me, first my Omnipod has been great, second doing low carb has been a revelation. Good luck to you.
I hear ya, the other day I was in yoga and my sugar was 126 pre workout, during my workout my CGM was telling me my sugar was rising into the 200’s during the workout. It’s frustrating when you are trying to do everything right. There are times I’ve written a diary of my day including my blood sugars what I ate and exercise and I’ve brought to the doctors to show them what I’m doing.
My successful Diabetes Treatment Story
My doctor diagnosed me with diabetes just over a year ago, at the time I was prescribed Metformin. I went to the some diabetes related websites and learned about the diet they suggested. I started the diet right away and I was very loyal to it. However, after weeks of being on the diet it never helped, my blood sugar didn’t drop like I wanted it to. My personal physician wasn’t much help either, he didn’t really seem to give me any other options besides my prescription and the usual course of insulin. I was about to give up and then I discovered a great treatment method. The guide was authored by one of the leading professionals in the world of diabetes research, Dr. Max Sidorov. This is a guide that that shows you, in a very simple way, how to conquer the disease without traditional methods. I have to say that since I’ve found the guide and followed it, I’ve not only improved my health but I’ve also lost weight and improved other aspects as well. My activities have increased and I have a ton of energy! It is my goal to share the this diabetes treatment method as much as possible to show people there’s more to the disease than traditional schools of thought and you can find your own path to healing with natural methods.
