what i've being through in my life..., would kill you.

Posted by mystiquarte in The Enchantment of Pandora, 21 June 2017 · 30 views

It's almost one year since I was in hospital, this anniversary is poignant as it was when I started taking my diabetes, eating disorder and general health more seriously. Alot has changed in this time...while some areas of my life haven't really changed at all and sometimes it worries me that they haven't improved or changed what is important is that the...


10 years and rising

Posted by JimmyJack in JimmyJack's Blog, 20 March 2017 · 284 views

Hi All! I'm new to all of this type of communicating so please bear with me. I was diagnosed w/T2 about 10 years ago but never took it very seriously. I always ate what I wanted and justified it by working out for 4 hours at the gym then immediately running to the nearest Mickey Ds. I would go to the docs fairly often and get blood work done and I never r...


First Entry

Posted by fillmanw1 in fillmanw1's Blog, 18 January 2017 · 362 views

This is a new experience for me. Diabetes has really sucked for me. Never been overweight, or indulged excessively with sweets of carbs. Prescribed Metfomin originally, absolutely could not handle it. Tried to control blood sugar by diet, not working so good. Trying Januvia......Hoping it works well.....

Been rather busy over the holidays so I haven't had time to check in here much. Had a great Christmas and New Year's, just busy with in-laws visiting and various family gatherings in general.

The holidays did however go pretty smoothly even with both me and hubby indulging some and paying for it later when neither of us got the insulin dose right the fi...

14 months after DX

14 months after DX

I missed my 1 year lab appointment so I went in early this Sunday morning and got my results back this afternoon.

In short:
Passed my urine test (Microalbumin/Creat Ratio) - which was borderline before and now well below the threshold. Will keep an eye on this.
A1c is now 5.7. Ironic how I thought my previous 5.5 was too high and ho...


Continuing the fast...

Posted by Vilya in Flotsam and Jetsam, 11 April 2016 · 1,243 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 · 1,372 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...

Posted by shirly in Diabetes Diet, 08 January 2016 · 967 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 · 1,077 views

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.

Hi my name is Crystal, I am 30 years old. I have been a diabetic my whole life but was diagnosed at 16. I am type 1.5 and am insulin resistant.

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



Posted by LaDonna in My Diabetic Journey, 28 May 2015 · 1,307 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..

Does Coffee impact Blood Sugar Level? - A personal experiment

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.
