I'm currently 6.4 / 115.

 

I can guarantee it won't be that in one neutral hour, it will likely be at least 1 / 24 mg/dl either way. MY BG simply does not like to stay still, until it either hypos out or hits around 9 / 160 mg/dl or higher, then it suddenly and annoyingly finds a real sense of rock solid stability. Or, I get to it first and bump it, which the pump helps a great deal to do. That's the way it's worked for me - almost always - the good zone is slippery like a greased speedbump, my BG level rolls away from it either way extremely easily. I have had a few days in my life where my BG suddenly found a real tendency to gravitate towards good numbers and not jump around or slide away, over the hours. The last time I remember that, was approximately 3 years ago for about 48 hours.

 

In 3 hours, given no food and no particular activity except light ones, my BG would be likely to be 2 or 3 / 50 mg/dl either way, likely up, but possibly down. Intervention in the form of food or a correction will likely be needed within 3 - 5 hours, I do so pretty often through the day.

 

That's about the basic scenario of how my body's basic BG stability (doesn't really) work. It's actually a big improvement on my MDI days, and includes benefits reaped from tested and programmed basal settings and other pump tricks.

 

Sometimes I have days where there's more of a sense of stability. Generally, I have a good chance to get through the day not seeing double figures (or 180+ mg/dl) now. Definitely not every day, but many days.

154...just ate lunch. Recovering from my typical 10 am low.

 

Subby,

I feel for you that you have to struggle so much to keep yourself level. It can be so consuming. Imagine if you weren't so diligent in controlling it!

124 after eating Flax seed brownies all day

 

Okay, I keep hearing about these, but when I did a search, this was the only post that came up. Where do you get the recipe for these? I think it's time that I try them. :)

104, almost always fasting post PP I am around 104, I live around 104. the whole meter thing. I should just skip it. my body freaks out getting me to stay as high as 104 or getting me to 104. and then it just goes to sleep. yeap 104. all the time. nothing lower and usually don't spend much time much higher. diabetes, well, we seem to all have our own type. I wake 104, eat 15 bluberries, go to work where i run around on my feet for five hours straight, i get home, test, 104.

Flax Seed Brownies

Great with coffee in the morning

 

1 cup Flax Seed (whole)

1 cup Flax Meal

1 cup Buckwheat

1 cup Sunflower seeds

0.25 cup Sunflower oil

14 oz Prunes (no sugar added)

3 Green Bananas (resistant Starch)

1 cup Walnuts

3 eggs

1 cup Splenda

 

Blend in a blender on high the following items:

Bananas (3 Green unripe) Resistant Starches

eggs

Oil

slowly add 14 oz of Prunes,

This will form a thick paste, add 1/2 water or more as needed to blend transfer mixture to mixing bowl Fold in Flax seeds, Flax Meal, Sunflower seeds, Walnuts, then add the Buckwheat and Splenda. You can add Cin, and Vani if you like

 

Place in a 13-9 cake pan or larger depending on how thick you want them, bake for 25-30 minutes

 

To get the full effect of the resistant carbs of the bananas, let them cool before eating.

 

I barely get past 130 when eating them all day.

Very excited. Thank you!

One question though...I can't use the walnuts because my son is severely allergic to nuts. Have you ever made them without?

Are they essential?

 

NicHolzhauer: sorry, I know this has nothing to do with your original post. To make it relevant, my current bg reading is 154.

I don't think so, I would find another nut hes OK with or increase the Sunflower seeds or maybe pumpkin seeds. All are good for you.

Those brownies sound great! Too many carbs for this girl though :( ; I try to stay at around 20 grams per meal, so 16 grams for a sneaky treat puts me too far over - boo hoo.

219 not so bad for being without Lantus or Novolin R for over two months. I haven't worked since January 2008 and no insurance.
