Stress: Sometimes when diabetic patients undergo stress (prolonged exercise for example) stress hormones (cortisol and adrenalin) can increase glucose. However it is still important for him to follow up with his doctor because it does not appear that the exercise he did was particularly stressful. In general patients with type 2 diabetes experience hypoglycemia (low sugar) in response to exercise. ...Read more

Lose the weight: The first part of treating diabetes is to lose weight. i know how difficult that can be but I'm just saying. Your medicine, metformin, is taken two times a day with food. The most important test which is done by the doctor is called hemoglobin A 1 C and its value should be from 6.7-7.5% It can be lower with great control but its the most important. ...Read more

Diabetes: If your blood sugars are running higher than usual, look for sources of infection, such as bladder/kidney or even on bottom of your feet (especially if they're numb & tingly). Blood sugars that are higher than usual are often a sign of infection that needs to be isolated & treated as quickly as possible. ...Read more

This : This is a tough call to make without knowing anything else or having the ability to examine you, take your vital signs, and see if you're spilling protein in your urine. First, let me be the first one to tell you, you are diabetic. If you're not having difficulty breathing or chest pain, it's probably ok to wait to see your doctor tomorrow. I assume that he/she knows your glucose is 270 and your legs are swollen, right? You can't really go wrong by going to the er. Officially, it's the safest advice i can give you here. If you chose not to and wait until tomorrow, stay hydrated. Dehydration comes with high blood sugars, so drink lots of water, and needless to say, no sugar, and no carbs, including bread, wheat, pasta (which will convert to sugar). Water & proteins, and if you're up to it, walk around the block. Exercise lowers blood sugar. When is doubt, go to the er. ...Read more
