Skipping breakfast iStock/Thinkstock Overweight women who didn’t eat breakfast had higher insulin and blood sugar levels after they ate lunch a few hours later than they did on another day when they ate breakfast, a 2013 study found. Another study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that men who regularly skipped breakfast had a 21 percent higher chance of developing diabetes than those who didn’t. A morning meal—especially one that is rich in protein and healthy fat—seems to stabilize blood sugar levels throughout the day. Your breakfast is not one of the many foods that raise blood sugar.

    Highest Blood Sugar Reading?

    I am just curious as to how badly other people's blood sugar levels have gotten. I've had mine register at over 600 at times. In fact, my meter wouldn't even give me an exact reading. It just said "HI". Scary. So, what is the highest your blood glucose level has ever gotten, and did you require any medical attention?

    After a ERCP my sugar was normal around 104 within the next blood work I had was 2 weeks later it was 1340. They told me to go to a ER the ER was amazed I was walking and talking the only effect I felt was I could not see 2ft in front of me. Now they are saying I am diabetic I'm a little confused how it jumped so high so fast. I can not get answers everyone just tells me I am diabetic and the test that they do would prove that I was diabetic for 3 months because of the 1340 but I am stupid and they will not see my point nor give me answers. They just say that the ERCP did not cause any of this but they really cant explain what did. So now I have to take 4 shots a day and oral medication 2 times a day.
