No more Shaking Beef

Posted by kayell in Fasting, Keto and Accountability, 29 July 2015 · 16 views

Had a lovely lunch with my brother, ate 1/2 my plate of shaking beef (saved rest for dinner (that didn't happen)). Went back home, helped him haul about various furniture and stuff he was picking up and wound up taking my BG at 3 hrs PP. 133! Damn it. Apparently sugar in the marinade. A plate full of beef, watercress and a few tomato slices shouldn't do t...

First 30 days....

Posted by Bishop in Bishop's Blog, 28 June 2015 · 298 views

Seems like this blog area is the right place for this sort of entry vs. my first post on this DF site. Yikes! (though all of you were quite accommodating and just went with the flow)

Anyhow, I did want to snapshot a entry after my first 30 days after DX and see how things change over time. I've already uploaded my FBG chart in my images gallery but he...

It's hard to lose weight (I am sure most of you know), I am always ti...

Monitoring.....

Posted by LaDonna in My Diabetic Journey, 28 May 2015 · 373 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..

Life really couldn't be better!

Posted by SweetAndBendy in SweetAndBendy's Blog, 20 May 2015 · 329 views

I'm a generally very positive person, I don't know why but I just am. And despite the things life might throw at me at times, I just deal with it and live life to the fullest. I haven't been on here for a long time now, been too busy with life offline, but I haven't forgotten the forum or the people I've met in the chat :)

This year I'm celebrating 10 ye...

Does Coffee impact Blood Sugar Level? - A personal experiment

Background

I had a history of unmanaged diabetic condition with H A1C hovering between 8.2 and 10. In the recent months, I have successfully lowered my fasting blood sugar level by following a stricter diet and walking daily. My goal is to reverse the diabetic condition, and eliminate the medications.

Scared & hungry

Posted by ChristyC in Foodie turned diabetic, 13 October 2014 · 1,257 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...

insulin pumping, basal rates and 1 more...

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 · 1,148 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...

Mine boyfriend likes curvy girls...and that means usually plus sized, but definate shape...weight is less important than curves. Well, now that I am losing we...

What was your postmeal reading (and how long after)?

Posted by Bee in Blog Bee, 09 November 2013 · 716 views

I was pleasantly surprised by the post-meal readings tbh. I checked again before driving - that would have been 3.5 hours post meal and was 5.6 so that seems okay to me. Was going to work so was actually a tad too low, will need to have a wee snack sometime soon as I'm working overnight :)
