    The Complete Guide to Fasting

    I am trying intermittent fasting these last 3 weeks, lost 7.5 lb and my BG in the morning is below 130s for the last 8 days (used to be around 140 or higher). Also eating low glycemic foods, and reduced amount of proteins consumed and consequently eating healthier; fasting one day and eating next day what I choose make it a "schedule" not diet for me plus I am satisfied with much smaller meals after fasting. The goal is not only to shed pounds but - with fasting 24 hrs every other day - to improve on a1c and try to drop expensive medications like janumet and trulicity (which have some side effects I am not enjoying, like itch on injection site, or patch of skin on my arm, and frequent urination disrupting sleep). Will report weekly.

    This Saturday morning my reading was 106. Panic at the grocery stores... snow is coming! Panic! You would think that a blizzard is coming instead of a measly 3 to 5 inches (7 - 12 cm).

    What happens when we discontinue Metformin

    Its been reported from several sources. Theyre not just peeing it out but also flushing unused pills down the loo Its not just Met but also antibiotics & hormone replacement drugs. https://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/2015/01/13/metformin-diabetes-drug-pollution-lake-michigan/21734507/

    What happens when we discontinue Metformin

    I don't know if I would agree with it being put in the water but I do suspect something. Doctors get annoyed and angry with patients who can't tolerate metformin For those of us who handle it quite well, they want to get us off it as quickly as possible. In other words, doctors only want you on meds which cause problems.

    What happens when we discontinue Metformin

    There are so many residents of Michigan peeing out Metformin that it was found in the fish. So I guess its already in the food supply.

    7 on this delightful rainy day... it's been a long time since we've had any. It's sad to see so many plants dyeing because of the drought, even those in the cities parks & gardens.

    What happens when we discontinue Metformin

    Seems odd that doctors and members are looking to get off or reduce metformin. In addition to helping with blood glucose / A1C, it has anti-cancer properties and should probably go in the drinking water instead of fluoride from what I read. 😁

    (Regence) OTC network card

    I am retired on Medicare w/Regence. I was sent a OTC Network (health account) card with $40 loaded. Checked the account, good to go. Went to Walmart to pickup 200 Strips and card would not connect. Cashier said the same card would not connect Monday. Anyone else have a problem? Discover to the rescue.

    6.7 I dont take my worries to bed, thats my sleeping time. I have all day & tomorrow to work through the issue if needed & theres nothing I can do about it at night. Many,many years ago if an issue as being persistent, I would write it down on paper & declare it could stay there until morning. That always made me giggle so realised nothing was worth worrying over. Diana, it might be the time to go back to start using your meter to find whats changed for you.
