Continuing the fast...

Posted by Vilya in Flotsam and Jetsam, 11 April 2016 · 113 views

Fasting today, after a weekend of so-so eating. I have decided I really need to double down on the LC thing and get back to how I was right after dx. I've had too many slip-ups.

Today I'm fasting until dinner (from dinner last night), and I'm planning on making a big ol' pile of eggs and bacon. I'm pretty hungry today. Not starving , but you know, I'm fe...

Carbohydrates - Nutrition or Poison???

Posted by meyery2k in Hanging out in ClubD!, 01 March 2016 · 571 views

I thought this might be an interesting opener....

A quote I often come across in my Google travels in the realm of diabetes is, "Carbs are poison for diabetics". I would say that I am onboard with this. I can only really write from the perspective of a newly diagnosed T2 that APPEARS to still make insulin so please forgive me if I make statements that...

Nine months after DX....

Posted by Bishop in Bishop's Blog, 16 February 2016 · 283 views

Nine months after DX.... Just got my numbers back from the lab and hit a 5.5 for my A1C - still much higher than I thought, but given what I have been doing (or not doing), combined with a huge wake up call on my DXA scan in terms of my visceral fat situation, I cannot say I'm surprised. Lipid and metabolic panels all still good thankfully.

Will think through how best to increme...

Spastic fantastic

Posted by SweetAndBendy in SweetAndBendy's Blog, 22 January 2016 · 254 views

I haven't slept much nor well overnight, been having a fair bit of leg spasticity and I can't really pinpoint as to why. Now I do have spasms in my legs from time to time, but for the most part it doesn't wake me up or keep me awake. Most of the time I just get some spasms after a transfer or going over a bump or something.
Maybe I need to increase my mu...

The Healing Foods Pyramid Developed by UMich Gets a "C" Grade

Posted by shirly in Diabetes Diet, 08 January 2016 · 347 views

The Healing Foods Pyramid guide put together by the University of Michigan Integrative Medicine Division is a step ahead of the USDA's new pyramid in at least one area - clarity.But how does it score for your health in general?

For this, you can neglect that it is 10 storey high. But as with the USDA's new food pyramid and the Harvard School of Public He...

Why I accept Dr. Bernstien's definition of normoglycemia

Posted by OldTech in OldTech's Blog, 18 October 2015 · 462 views
normoglycemia

Normal blood glucose as defined by sampling does indeed show that people spike to 110,120,130 and even 140 and beyond. The problem that I have with these samples is that the population being sampled are not that healthy. For example, it is estimated that around half the population is prediabetic and that most people will need treatment for one of the vasc...

Well, where to start...my name is Elizabeth, I'm a 27 yr old T1D since 1997, I've had an insulin pump since I was 14, and out of nowhere, I just haven't felt like myself. I guess I'm stressing over making sure that my son's ready to start 1st grade but I look around my house and started hearing my parent's voices saying that I need to clean my house more,...

Monitoring.....

Posted by LaDonna in My Diabetic Journey, 28 May 2015 · 787 views

I hate monitoring!!!! Seriously? Who likes poking themselves 20 times a day? Ok well maybe 4-6 times a day. I'm hoping for a day when it will be easier. In the mean time I got a Fitbit and it has alarms on it. So I set it for each time I need to monitor so it buzzes on my wrist until I shut it off!! It's actually annoying but it seems to work for me..

Scared & hungry

Posted by ChristyC in Foodie turned diabetic, 13 October 2014 · 1,890 views

Hello everyone! Just this evening I realized that I need a support group. My whole life I have watched as my, is it A1C?, numbers have climbed. For the last couple years my general physician has had me on glumetza, but I rarely took it. Mainly because I didn't want to, but there were often times when allergy season would come, and my body did things I did...

I am 21 year old male and just started using an insulin pump again three days ago after trying it out three weeks over the summer but had a rough time after making a trip to California which resulted in out of control BGs due to the three hour time difference. I'm having a difficult time understanding basal rates and their relation to gluconeogenesis. I r...

Carb Crunch

Posted by Elaine1 in Blog Elaine1, 19 February 2014 · 1,505 views

If the title sounds yummy, like a crunchy granola bar, sorry. What I mean by "crunch" is, like,
a numbers crunch, crunching the carbs - making 'em lower.

One member said they keep their carbs to under 50 per day. I think that is terrific.
It's my goal, too. Yes, it's hard. But well worth the effort. Those bad numbers turn into
good numbers with each pas...
