Does Coffee impact Blood Sugar Level? - A personal experiment

Posted by wannabeat in Wanna Beat Diabetes?, 08 December 2014 · 132 views

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.

Diabetic condition develops over a long period of t...

How Am I Doing? At the 6 month mark and still not sure.

Posted by kelollman in kelollman's Blog, 26 October 2014 · 542 views
Type 1, diet, low carb

Upon diagnosis, I actually struggled for a couple of days deciding whether or not to tell my boss and co-workers that I was a Type 1 diabetic. Then I decided that it was in my best interest to do so, if I passed out at my desk from a low, they would have some idea of what to do to help me. If they were to even notice that I was in need of assistance.

Scared & hungry

Posted by ChristyC in Foodie turned diabetic, 13 October 2014 · 462 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...

My life

Posted by SweetAndBendy in SweetAndBendy's Blog, 15 July 2014 · 400 views

I have to admit, I haven't tried to blog before, but thought I'd give it a shot (pun intended).
Having had type 1 diabetes for about 9 years, I thought it was about time to write some about my experiences with it.

I am by no means an expert, I just know my own body and my own case of diabetes, and as for experiences I can only talk for myself.

I have...

Carb Crunch

Posted by Elaine1 in Blog Elaine1, 19 February 2014 · 717 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 · 326 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 :)

At the request of my doctor I have begun a new business. Diabetic Health Coaching. My doctor wanted some place he could send his patient's to that could help them understand what is happening to their body. 15 minutes of doctor time is not much when trying to acquire the knowledge it takes to control ones blood glucose levels. I am self employed and ow...

Gardening

Fungal infections and Florida seem to go hand in hand and I try to not use toxic stuff on food plants.
I found Actinovate works very very well and organic gardening control of the assorted fungal diseases.
It's a bacteria powder you mix with water and spray the plants with. A 2 oz packet last me all year as a little goes a long way.
