    Steel welcome to the forum. As usual I woke up at 3 AM (not by choice) and looked at the news to see who won the elections. I took a reading and it was 135! Rolled and went back to sleep. Woke up again at 7 AM and took another reading and now it is 103.

    Just returned from the endo visit. They were pretty happy with all of my blood work results. A1c was down to 7 from 7.3 last visit. He said to shoot for 6.7 next time (6 months).

    123 Rainy here all night. Leftovers from that hurricane that blew through central America. Supposed to be a gorgeous weekend though. It's the Georgia/Florida game and the Blue Angels airshow this weekend. Good times. I hated college my first year because I was 23, had never lived anywhere but my hometown and was used to living on my own and now was in a dorm with a bunch of 18 year olds. But the next 3 years were the most fun I've ever had in my life. Memories.

    A 74 (4.39) on the Bayer Contour meter, and a 90 (5.0) on the Bayer Contour Next EZ meter. It's amusing to me to read that people are turning on their heat, while I'm sitting here, the temperature outside is 54 degrees F (12.2 degrees C), and I have the window A/C unit running here in my computer room. A friend asked me why I don't just open a window, but the only window in this room has the A/C unit in it.

    6.6 and it wouldnt surprise me if there was another 6 hiding there. That night was hot. The dog woke me at 2am panting, so i got up & sponged him down with a wet towel & gave him cold water. He slept on the floor in front of a fan. I left the doors & windows open all night , so the house is cool this morning. Hugs @Ahnanimus ...your a treasure & your friend is lucky to have you.

    149 (ice cream) Thin mint cookies kept in the freezer are da' bomb! No trick or treaters last night as I'm not in an apartment complex. For the last 16 years in our old neighborhood we would always had hundreds of kids.

    AMA stomps on paleo book

    Meanwhile, I am in the Succeed study at UofM for treating diabetes with low carb diet (20 net carbs daily). http://www.succeedstudy.org/ I saw some of the push back on low carb and asked my study Dr about it. let me share her response: Here are discussions of some of the major issues with the latest, flawed study (e.g. arbitrary definition of “low carb”, poor measure of dietary intake): https://anhinternational.org/2018/08/22/scientific-attack-on-low-carb-diets/ https://chriskresser.com/will-a-low-carb-diet-shorten-your-life/ https://www.dietdoctor.com/all-over-media-low-carb-diets-could-shorten-life (by a Swedish MD) https://cluelessdoctors.com/2018/08/17/when-bad-science-can-harm-you/ https://inews.co.uk/opinion/comment/diet-study-low-high-carb-best-healthiest-nhs-doctor/ (by a UK cardiologist) https://isupportgary.com/articles/fakenews-headlines-low-carb-diets-arent-dangerous https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/901910#vp_1 What we know from many clinical trials with people with type 2 diabetes is that carbohydrate restriction can improve insulin resistance, improve glucose control, lower inflammation, improve GERD, and lower liver fat, all healthy changes. For example, last month I attended this conference about very low-carb diets: https://u.osu.edu/ketodiet/ The audience was more than half physicians, and the talks were serious discussions of all of the biological changes that occur with ketosis (which happens when we eat a very low-carb diet), including positive effects for inflammation, insulin resistance, cancer, recovery from exercise, epilepsy, and preliminarily Alzheimer's. If you'd like to see some of what was discussed, it's on twitter! https://twitter.com/hashtag/lowcarbOSU?src=hash They'll also eventually post all the talks. And, I'm on the American Diabetes Association's Nutrition Review Committee this year. I reviewed all of the research evidence for what people with type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, and prediabetes should eat. (It took a long time!) Based on our read of the evidence, there was no more effective eating pattern for type 2 diabetes than a very low-carb diet. ********************** So, the ADA may be beginning to listen!

    Imagine all the wildlife they will see. Bears, deer, moose, beaver. In the summer they could take a trip to the coast and see polar bears. The Northern Lights. I could see that being a grand adventure.
