My husband is a diabetic his sugar stays up most of the time. I fixed him a salad and it went up I don't know what else to do to help him any advice?

See his doctor: If your husband's blood sugar stays up most of the time, then he should get his diabetes regimen adjusted.

Why is a diabetics blood sugar higher in the morning upon waking?

Why is a diabetics blood sugar higher in the morning upon waking?

Nocturnal hypo: Dear JustinZ, sometimes the sugar actually goes too low overnight and as a response, the liver releases the glucose storages. Unfortunately, this release is not well controlled causing high sugars in the mornings. Talk to your doctor, but consider doing a 3AM glucose check or modifying your bedtimes snack. I hope this helps. ...Read more

Do you know which one is better for diabetic person - sugar free gold or sugar free natura?

Do you know which one is better for diabetic person - sugar free gold or sugar free natura?
