I have been on the program for 11 weeks and have lost 55 pounds. My sugar numbers have been perfect. I have reduced my insulin intake significantly. I have been taking the same amount of insulin for the past couple of weeks and like I said my numbers have been perfect till recenly. They are going up.This morning when I got up I was at 122. I gave myself 5 units of Novolog.

I have stuck strictly to the program .Any suggestions?????.

Sugar levels rise when the body is under stress from illness and injury as well. If you are seeing a trend over a week, I would definitely go see your PCP to discuss medication changes..

I am Type II as well, and when I see my sugar levels rise, I tend to do a few days straight of intense cardio and that sucks up most of my excess sugar. It is definitely something you will have to stay on top of though..

I agree, if it's several days, see your doctor. They'll be able to advise you properly. There are a few different reasons why it could be...from infection to stress to expired/improperly stored insulin when dosing to progression of whatever is wrong with your insulin to begin with. I get high sugars in the morning because of my liver (otherwise my sugars are fine, even though I'm type 2). It just releases a lot of sugar around 3am. If your liver is irritated for some reason, it can cause a high sugar (increased production by the liver).

My sister gets high enzymes all the time for no reason (not an infection or disease she's had biopsies and testing done). It's not necessarily a significant problem, but I've read that it sometimes happens with diet/exercise changes. It's just something to watch..

I hope things work out for you..

Thanks for your response. I am not sick nor do I have a illness. I am not a big exercise person. I was sailing along and all of a sudden it started going up. The phamasist says it's probably because the Lantis I take has gotten old.

Not a type II diabetic, but had Gestational Diabetes. I had to have a late night snack, just before I went to bed otherwise my morning reading was way too high. Not sure if this would apply to a type II diabetic, but thought I'd throw it out there..
