Lows at the Supermarket

I know it’s only been a few days since I found out my A1C was 6.6, but my sugar levels have been great! No major highs and only a few lows. If I can keep this up for the next few months, I’ll be good for the next test. My latest low was actually last night at the supermarket. It’s funny because I’ll realize my level is dropping when I start grabbing sweets and things I normally wouldn't go for. After grabbing the sweetest cereal I could find, I checked myself and realized I was down to 56! If I had to choose a place I’d want to have a low like that, a supermarket would definitely be at the top of my list haha.

One thing I have to work on is not eating until I want to burst when I’m really low. For some reason this happens to me at night. If my level is down in the 50s, I’m craving everything in sight. I’ll start with a bowl of cereal, move on to a granola bar, maybe some more cereal and then some crackers and peanut butter, etc. It’s like I’m on an eating frenzy. Then of course by the time I’m feeling better, my sugar level is in the 200s! I’ve been trying hard to have more patience and eat one thing, wait a few minutes, then check to see if my level is any higher. It usually is. It’s all about self-control!
