Today I had a treat, will numbers rise?

I had a breakfast bowl – sausage, eggs, potatoes and cheese – 1 serving.

A medium milkshake for lunch.

Piece of pork chop for dinner with a salad.

A small one person bag of popcorn.

And an apple.

Now will the shake earlier today mess up my blood sugar numbers. I will see with the morning’s reading.  I have to test to find out what I can and can’t eat. Sometimes it is a matter of when I eat it as well for the fasting numbers. They don’t give you enough strips to do more than fasting and if you use more you can’t test every day. There is a limit through insurance.

When I had a Walmart meter I checked them much more often. Their strips are $40 for 100 and my new meter’s are $137 for 100 although insurance pays for it all they will only give me one per day. Need to find the Walmart meter for in-between use.

      My nurse from the insurance company knew that ice cream was my biggest problem so her suggestion was to cut my days in half and the portion amount in half to start rather than taking it completely away from me. I am really making changes in my diet, but I need that treat occasionally, but I do see your point.
