My typical morning starts with a cup of coffee. That’s breakfast! Nothing more and nothing less for several reasons; first off my fasting morning sugar is usually higher than at other times throughout the day. When I am on medication, including metphormin (to help decrease sugar in the blood of people with Type 2 diabetes) and insulin, it’s in the 120 to 160 range, when I’m not on medication, it’s in the 220 to 250 range, as is the case now (see first diary entry).
