    Am 64 not fat. of average height and weigh 70kg. My blood sugar most times falls between 9.6 – 5.9. I use to jog to keep fit. With my small stature do I still need to jug to keep my diabetes in check and what do I do to control my blood level low?

      Growing evidence between diabetes and cardiac issues make continuing an exercise program a must.
      Dealing with low blood sugar can be dealt with by either using bodybuilding energy cubes or by caring a small flask of orange juice for emergencies.

    My age 66 I was diagnosed as being pre diabetic 138 four months ago, I immediately change my eating habit, first I watch my carbs and my sugar intake, I walk five days a week, 3 miles a day, I burn today 478 calories, I eat plenty fiber and lots of leafy green veggies, people walking is the key, I just check my sugar after fasting and walking, my blood sugar ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„ 86, people if u want to live exercise is the way to longevity, I’m living proof, if you only walk twenty minutes that will lower your blood level, Google the benefits of Termeric, that’s better than the med your doctor prescribe. You got to change your eating habits people.

    I score a 6.7 on a A1C test. They are giving me until July to correct. I bought a blood glucose checker. My uncle advice me to give up white bread, milk, cheese, salad dressing, catch up, already prepared and processed foods. I have been eating chicken, turkey, eggs, nuts, seeds, brown rice, whole wheat pita bread, English muffins, veggies and fruits. My blood glucose was on average 140-120 but as high as 195 once and low as 112 a couple times. Now I am as high as 93 and usually in the 70 but once as low as 63. My uncle said it should always be lower than 130 but higher than 110. I feel ok as long as it above 73. I feel hungry under 73. I feel ok at under 120. I was noticing I wanted a nap above 120. I need someone to share healthy ways to raise it. If I touch sugar it will make me crave it. I have no will power. What is a healthy range? They want me to be on medication if I don’t pass the next A1C with less than 6.5. I got a 6.7 so she wants to give me a chance to control with diet and exercise and retest me in July. I just feel all the info is contradicts other info. I feel clueless and confused. Can anyone help me?
