    Are you on a diet to lose weight?

    I simply cannot resist. Was this the worst 4 days of your life? <humor>

    COVID-19 vaccine

    Had flu shot a month ago and booster this week. Both the flu shot and second dose of covid vaccine gave me a sore arm for a day and I expect the booster will too. A small price to pay for not dying unable to breathe. I think not being able to breath would be excruciating and I'm glad I'll never know what it's like.

  12. Mirsy, why does he take 4 units of FIASP before lunch and before dinner? The amount of FIASP (which is similar to Novolog insulin) that he should take before a meal, depends on how many carbs are in the food that he is about to eat. That amount is never a fixed amount like 4 units. If he eats food that is high in carbs, then he'd need to take more FIASP. If the food he eats has fewer carbs, he might need to take less than 4 units. He needs to determine his insulin to carb ratio (I/C), that way, he can determine how much FIASP insulin to take before each meal. To determine what his I/C ratio is, he needs to count the carbs in the food that he is about to eat, and take 1 unit of FIASCO for every 18 carbs that are in the food. Take a BG reading before he eats that food, then again at 2 hours after he's eaten the food. If his after meal numbers are higher than his before meal numbers, then at his next meal, count the carbs in the food he's about to eat, take a BG reading before he eats, then take 1 unit of FIASP for every 16 carbs in that food. Wait 2 hours after he's eaten, and take another BG reading. If the after meal reading is still too high, then at his next meal, he needs to take 1 unit of FIASP for every 14 carbs in the food that he's about to eat. Test before and after each meal, and if his readings are still too high, then take 1 unit of FIASP for every 12 carbs in the meal. Keep doing that....taking 1 unit of FIASP for lesser and lesser amounts of carbs in the meal. At some point, you will take the amount of FIASP where his after meal readings are the same, or slightly higher, than his before meal readings. Myself, I need to take 1 unit of my Novolog insulin, for every 3 carbs that I am about to eat.
  13. Hi all, here is an update on my husbands new medical care. He takes 28 units of Lantus every morning. He takes it 15 mins before his breakfast and 4 units of FIASP. Also takes 4 units of F before lunch and dinner. He also takes 1 Jardiance every morning. All other oral meds have been stopped. He is still having some highs and lows - I guess it takes awhile to settle in to this new regimen? Does this sound like a good plan? He is also using a CGM which is a godsend Wish he would only have to do the morning shots and could skip the lunch and dinner. Any comments? Thanks for your help. Mirsy

    Lot of rain. Up on the mountain snow. Unfortunately all the webcams are iced over so no good views yet.

    A 62 (3.44) today. So, I had my cardiac catheter procedure done today, and they did the "deluxe procedure", or at least, that's what I called it. They had two IV's connected to me, they inserted one catheter in my wrist to check out one side of my heart, and then they inserted a catheter in my groin area to check out the other side of my heart. I was in the hospital for 9 hours (from 8 am till 5 pm). What they found came as no surprise to me....I'll need a double bypass and a new heart valve. So, it looks like I'll be joining the "zipper club". (the scars left after open heart surgery look like a big zipper.)😄 I'll see my cardiologist on the 15th, to see what he wants me to do. Oh, and to add to the confusion, they'll be installing my solar power system on Monday.
