  4. While it's not for everyone, insulin can get your glucose numbers down. I am a type 2 on insulin, and my usual morning readings are in the 70's. A while back, I needed to take prednisone, which is a steroid, and steroids play havoc with your glucose. My glucose numbers shot up really high when I was taking the steroids, but I just increased my insulin dose, and my glucose numbers came back down again. The problems with using insulin is that it's expensive, and you need to closely watch your glucose levels so as to prevent them from going too low.

    7.5 having just slept 8 hours. Interesting case Irina & there has to be more to the story then he's letting on.. my money is on a private emotional attachment. Is that blackmail Judge Lee smells ? Diana, do you have a can of coke handy or can get one? It's great for settling stomach issues. So much for christmas shopping online when I dont read the description. I bought 10 small packets of soap with christmas wrapping $3 ea but when they arrived in the post yesterday theyre tiny motel sized soaps. Doh!.. the ad did say 25g but I didnt read that bit, I just read inconsequential details like Made in France. I had to spend another $30 last night & order 10 face washers to bulk the gift up. I guess it was all in the detail.
  7. Have you asked about Farxiga? This is diabetic medication that's been more recently approved for heart failure, so it should have the opposite side effect. The other path forward that seems evident: Let the medication push you into the diabetic region, then use medication along with diet and exercise to deal with the blood glucose.
  8. I talked to the pharmacist this morning. He said that the drug I am taking causes raising of the blood sugars in about half the people, the other half for some reason it doesn't. He said there were other drugs that could be tried to see if any of them wouldn't make it raise. The Lasix also has those issues. I don't know if maybe in trying to avoid high cost drugs, which I need to do as well, it might be that some of them would make matters worse more than others. I was hoping some members here might have gone though this and found a way to help reduce the effects. But any advice will do.

    144 today, I needed some oatmeal to feel good and it showed in the morning. Usually I do not eat high carb meals before bed. Lee, I know this man personally and I feel this doubt about the story of giving homeless man in debt money month after month. If this is true he is either senile or deceived but how can he be archdiocese high ranking official and be so naive? Something is not adding up. And my close friend is part time secretary there and it affected her greatly have her faith in this person destroyed. I guess the whole parish feels that way. This is the story https://www.wowt.com/2021/10/15/omaha-priest-facing-charges-theft-abuse-vulnerable-adult/ This priest was also a part of this story which was funny at the time: https://www.ncregister.com/blog/custodian-arrested-for-destroying-buddha-mary-poppins-displays-in-cathedral

    My reading this morning was 138 I had a queasy stomach last night and woke up with it, I'll be sticking around the cottage today. I think that it might be because of raspberries I put on my cereal yesterday morning this morning I noticed that the ones in the bottom of the container are all fuzzy.
  13. Thanks for the suggestions. I do have a cardiology appointment next week and will be bringing it up. Trouble is I think he said there is only two drugs which can possibly help with the way my heart is working and I believe they both have similar glucose raising issues. But I will try to be sure. The odd thing is I just took my morning reading which I admit I don't take all the time, but the times I have taken it since the drug issue has usually been around 117. That morning number can be variable as we all know. Before I had so many drugs to take it could be from 90 to 120 depending on something? But the readings after that untill late at night are about 80 points or more over what I used to easily see. So far as limiting food, that has become almost enough to drive one nuts. Now they say I have to keep my salt below 500 mg per meal. One kentucky fried chicken dinner is well over 2,000 mg. Or we used to get a pizza and I ate a part of it, that had almost 1,600 milligrams per serving size. Who would have thought something like a chicken bullion cube recipes call for an used to just be added without an worry would have about 2,000 mg of salt in one tiny cube? That is the way so many foods are, anything already made is usually far over the limits. So between cholesterol, diabeties, and now low sodium, its near impossible to eat anything within reason.
  14. Hi Larry I suggest you make an appointment with your Cardiologist and discuss a change in meds. Specialists only consider things for their specialty and he may not even know that the side effects of what he prescribed and I'm sure there is a drug you can take without those side effects. Doctors tend to not know much about the drugs they prescribe. In fact Before that Cardiologists appointment I'd talk to your Pharmacist. They are the ones that know about medications. Tell him/her about the problem you are having and ask if there is an alternative. Then You can suggest it to the Doctor in a round about way. Just say that you heard about this drug and wondered if it would it be ok for me. Never tell a doctor outright that you know more than them. Their egos can't take it. You might try a lower carb diet too but I don't think it alone will solve your problem
  15. Hi Larry, what an unfortunate side effect. Could you change your regular menu & opt for lower carb meals. Instead of cereal & yogurt try omelette , scrambled eggs or fried up vegetable leftovers . Instead of toast make cheese crackers for the crunch. Lee

  17. I don't know how long I have been getting along pretty well with out drugs but watching sort of what I eat and usually walking about a half hour most days. My morning readings were normally well under the 125 and closer to 100 most days. A few months ago on top of all the other medical issues I have I ended up with congestive Heart Failure. My Cardiologist gave me two new pills, one to try to build up the strength in my heart since the outgoing pressure was about as low as they consider safe. Also a water pill was added. I noticed both of them warned of possible increases in your glucose numbers. And indeed I am seeing numbers regularly like I never saw with any frequency before. After my normal high fiber cereal and yogurt I used to come in either lower than when I got up, or just a little bit above 110 or so. Now it comes in at near 190 for the same food. I just checked my evening reading and it was in the same range when before toward bed time it would be close to 100. So I just don't know what others have done if your in this situation. I saw something on line about not worring about the higher numbers as the heart is the most important factor with the medicine. I dont' want to see these kinds of numbers but I also don't want to start another pill for diabeties which so far I have avoided. I think I am up to 10 pills a day or more by now for other things, sometimes I think the pills are worse than the problem .. On and then this week the urologist gave me a new pill which also has some rather unfortunately side effects.

    7.3 Woke up at 4.10am by the noise of a wheelie bin going up the street. I guess the balaclava people had been busy. Irina, I knew a priest that had a gambling addiction & even used parish funds. That addiction destroys so many lives.

    On this rainy morning my reading was 126, the rain is supposed to end this morning and turn into a beautiful fall day. I wish that we could send the rain to the west coast, we are on the way to becoming the rainiest year in history, so far we have the 3rd rainiest year in history. Back home when I drove by the reservoirs on Friday they were full and usually this time of year they would have been around a third full.

    149 today, getting ready to go to church across the street here. Our little country church we were visiting recently is going through some kind of financial scandal and audit. Last time homily included a lot of non-religious information related to that. Thanks but no thanks

    I really didn't want to post my 9 this morning assumng my meter was telling lies. Thanks Diana, a great plan. I guess my mind is wishing I could see the Fall foliage so assumed everyone was heading there for that. Irina my favourite flowers are Australian natives especially the Waratahs & Flannel flowers but of the exotics.. Zinnias top that list. A simple flowering system but those vibrant colours brighten the world. I bought seeds but dont hold much hope for success as its too humid here which encourages powdert mildew.
