    2019 Morning Fasting BG Readings

    Hello Patty, Glad you have joined the group. I am curious, what you have been eating and when do you eat. Do you keep a food list? This will be very helpful in figuring out the high's you are having. Normally highs follow a meal that has carbs or is too much for your body to handle. Keeping a food list will be of great benefit. Simply write everything you put into your mouth on a pad. List the time and the amount. Then when you take your readings you will be able to learn what foods bring high numbers, then you can avoid them or limit them. Hope this helps and you get things under control, it is very hard on your body to bounce from high to low. Hope this helps, Janice

    Questions about Mucinex Sinus-Max

    I've taken Acetaminophen-which is the same as tylonol a few times and my readings have remained constant. "Phenylephrine" is a decongestant. Mucinex is mainly used for a cough with mucus and congestion mainly from a cold or flu. If you have mainly a sinus problems it may be caused by allergies and you might be better off with an allergy pill. If this is a recent problem eliminating new products that you have begun to use may help. I use a Rexall brand equal to Reactin when my allergies bother me. A saline spray like "Hydro-sense" will help reduce the swelling of the sinuses and make breathing easier.A Saline spray is salt water in certain proportions. Salt has properties that reduce swelling. I use both when my nose becomes blocked because of swelling sinuses caused by my allergy to dust, mold and certain scents

    Questions about Mucinex Sinus-Max

    I have used it and had no bg issues
  10. So I'm considering taking Mucinex Sinus-Max to see if that might help with loosening possible congestion causing my breathing problems, and I wonder if anyone's ran into any real issues with using the over the counter brand, since it does contain "Acetaminophen" which I've read supposedly can give false readings, and "Phenylephrine" which can apparently raise blood sugar.

    4.6 BG Ugh guys I am sick again. I have no idea what's going on because I have not had blood pressure issues in the past. Now my diastolic number went up to 95. And the systolic was 120. For a couple if days I had seen readings like 108/93 etc . Then yesterday I woke up feeling awful lots of chest discomfort. My no was 130/110 wtf?? I had chest discomfort and a headache too so I went to the hospital. After hours if waiting they told it me wasn't that high (isn't the bottom number high? At the hospital it was 140/105). I have diabetes so I shouldn't play with out of the blue high BP anyway. The diuretic they have me on hasn't lowered it in a whole day. The bottom number is still 100. I am still not feeling good. And my family doctor said a high diastolic number isn't even treated these days. It's like would you rather kidney disease heart disease and stroke ? Anyway that didn't help much. I suspected my thyroid might be an issue. But my TSH was normal. I've read metformin can lower it too. So who even knows. I'm having a thyroid antibodies test soon . But this has been nerve wracking. I have lost 15 pounds. My cholesterol went down. My BG is great. If anything my BP that was normal should have stayed that way or gotten lower. And it's high. I also considered if I hadn't supplemented with electrolytes properly on keto but the electrolyte tests were fine too. I am confused and just feeling terrible physically. Nothing silent or asymptomatic about this no issue.

    Breakfast Casserole

    Odd, I never caught myself over 100 during the weekend. A couple possible gotchas. 1) Be careful of serving size. That recipe is around 8-10 servings 2) Be careful of the breakfast sausage used. Many of them contain significant amounts of sugar and carby fillers. 3) Be careful of the amount and type of veggies used. Onion especially contains a lot of natural sugars. That's the reason they become really sweet when cooked. Ditto with the peppers, though not as extreme as onion. @dowling gram the recipe above isn't, though I do comment that I would have liked a little spice in it. Jalapenos have little to no heat if you remove the seeds as I specified in the recipe, but adds a nice flavor alongside the bell pepper. Chorizo, at least what I get here, is well seasoned but not spicy at all either.

    2019 Morning Fasting BG Readings

    120. It is a wild and crazy morning. Everything is coated with a layer of ice, we had about and inch (2.5cm) of sleet before it changed to freezing rain. The temperature is going from 29 (-1.7C) to 54 (12C) this afternoon. At least there is no wind to bring down the power lines but there are a lot of traffic accidents. I am substituting for a college professor this morning and I have my fingers crossed that the class will be cancelled because I don't want to drive on icy roads to the class this morning.
