Your blood: Sugar depends upon thousands of things, most of which you cannot control. You can, however, control diet, exercise, risk factors, medication, monitoring, glucose control etc. Smoking is one of those thing you an also control. It's not up to me to tell you how much you can get away with before you have trouble, because it's impossible to state with certainty. Your choice. I can't give permission. ...Read more

Fluctuating glucose: Patients with fluctuating blood sugar levels often have fluctuations in vision.

Any truth to the claim that consuming more fat, include trans fat, and little/no sugar will bring blood glucose level to normal range? Exercise too.

Any truth to the claim that consuming more fat, include trans fat, and little/no sugar will bring blood glucose level to normal range?  Exercise too.

Don't get your life: With diabetes, you need to be monitored closely as you experiment. Don't expect miraculous results from swapping calories from one group to another. It's much more to your credit that you're exercising, and this will be a huge help to you -- as will simply being pro-active about your health. Best wishes. ...Read more

How can exercise help me to lower my blood sugar level?

How can exercise help me to lower my blood sugar level?

Two ways.: Short-term, exercise causes more blood to go to the muscles to deliver oxygen. This results in more glucose going to the muscles as well, so exercise lowers blood sugar during exercise & for ~2 hr after. Long-term, resistance exercise (lifting weights) helps build more muscle mass. More muscle mass means more tissue to clear glucose from the blood after a meal, even if you're not exercising then. ...Read more
