I meant en equivalent of the term diabetes (mellitus) rather than  hyperglycemia being analogous to hypertension.

I didn't check BG this morning. Had to accompany a relative for a Ct very early in the morning. I have to leave for my own derm appointment in an hour. Getting the steroid injection in my scar...will have higher numbers for the next few days. Hoping they don't go too high. I am not looking forward to the painful as heck injection or the BG increase afterwords.

It was 9 when I first woke this morning.

It felt like flu symptoms, aching body, sneezing, sore throat etc.

Walked the dog & came home for panadol & went back to bed.

6.8 next waking session.

(Hugs) back @janice21475

 

Bg at 8 am 5.4

11 am 5.6 pretty much the same

2 hr pp last night was higher at 7.1. Last time it was 8 something.

 

But last time I got the steroid injected, it took 3 days for fasting bg to get down to 5s. It was 7.7 the morning after then in the mid 6s the next day and further down the following day.

 

I have metformin to thank. I took an extra took 250 mg before bed.  i am on the lowest dose so it was okay to have a little more. That prevented the liver dumps steroids are known for.

 

I am probably a bit more insulin sensitive from 2 months back from the healing that takes place once bg is down to normal levels.

 

I'll report back on bg trends tomorrow. Hopefully it will go in the right direction.

I'm only awake because the dog insisted upon it.

Yesterday was 105F & the house stayed at 91F until 1am making sleep difficult

A cool breeze visited at 1am and the temp dropped to 74F  so I fell asleep.

That breeze didnt stay long as its 30C / 80F inside the house already .

 

My next house will have to have air con

Friday = 124
Saturday = 104
Sunday = 112
I have been busy the last couple of days and I didn’t have time to post my reading
Friday I had a 2 hour meeting at a state agency in the morning… basically a waste of time, was one that you have to attend and all I did was watch the clock move ever so slowly from 9 AM to 11 AM.
Saturday I substituted for a professor at my alma mater UConn School of Social Work, it was a 3 hour class and I am not used to being on my feet for 3 hours

71.A new record. It's a beautiful cool sunny day and this morning I'm craving pancakes with lots of bacon and eggs and coconut coffee. . Guess I'll have to settle for instant coffee and eggs which is what I have. 😁
