    Fasting BG of 2021

    93 Finally got my fridge fixed yesterday. Hallaleuah. It's been really inconvenient. I think I have everything "fixed" that needed fixing. Yay for that. Oh and I called the realty company last week that I bought this house from and told them the landscape people were still cutting the grass and they said "Oh! We'll take care of that." Guess what? The landscape crew showed up yesterday again and did my lawn.

    8 which I know must be a lie but how can I prove it. No sale on monitors here.. I paid $198AU for a 24inch. I always feel fleeced when I deal with that store but they are local. My good fortune was in finding a carpark right at the door of the store. I was there when they opened & put the quarantine notice on the dashboard, so I knew my dog would be OK I even kept a straight face when asking that the salesman carry the monitor to the car, showing him my bandaid clad thumb for reasoning.

    Advice required for other foods

    I maintain my preferred weight and avoid highs and lows. So now I low carb. Good thing is, boyfie is an excellent cook and makes tasty meals that aren’t high in carbs. I eat meat, fish, chicken, veggies, fruits mostly. He makes a killer minestrone which is often my lunch. I avoid white foods now.

    Update on when I went to the hospital over a week ago

    ^^^ here's the original thread So anyway, not gonna go into the full details, but I have an appointment in a week from now where I'll be meeting with some people who are gonna get me with a proper primary care physician, with 0 ties to the people I've been seeing for over 5 years now. Apparently my dad told the woman on the phone who had set this up for me, about what was happening with me (she has Type 2) about how I eat the same stuff every day (not cuz I wanna) but just so I can /try/ to get some semblance of how carbs effect me, and he mentioned as well about how it's always different each day. Where I might need to up my dosage a few units, or lower it a bit, and how it's never consistent. APPARENTLY she told him that's definitely really odd for someone who is "supposed" to have Type 1. So I'm just glad I'm finally getting with more competent people

    An 87 (4.83) today. I also have a 24 inch monitor. I've had it for years, and I like it. It has 2 external USB ports on it, which I am using. My keyboard also has 2 external USB ports on it, which I'm not using at this time. When I need to buy a monitor, I look at reviews of monitors, and see which one has the best reviews, as well as how it did in benchmark tests. I don't care what it costs, I just want a really good monitor.(I think that this monitor cost $600). Since I've always bought them online, they are shipped to my house, usually with free shipping. Once I get a new monitor, I calibrate it with one of my colorimeters. Monitors don't come from the factory already calibrated, since that would be impossible. The graphics card in your computer is the reason why, since each graphics card reproduces colors differently. The reason why you should calibrate your monitor is because, once it's calibrated, what you see on your monitor is exactly how that picture looks. If you don't calibrate your monitor, what you see on your monitor, isn't what others are seeing on their monitors, and the difference can be dramatic.

    Anyone locked out of amazon because of an old G3 phone?

    @ran23 Now that you mentioned it, I checked my Playstore and found some local FM radio apps ready to be installed. You may want to check your Playstore app too, just search "FM radio". Hope it helps.

    How did you deal with the challenges as a Diabetic person?

    The feeling actually depends. Its hard, but the love I'm receiving from the people around me makes me happy and contended.

    How did you deal with the challenges as a Diabetic person?

    I started on Metformin 1000mg a day but stopped taking, under doctor's advice, about 18 months after diagnosis. I am able to keep this under control with diet and exercise so far. At first, yes, it was willpower. While that is a powerful tool, I find it a negative motivation for long term changes. Willpower eventually became habit as I received positive reinforcement from losing weight, feeling better, becoming fit, and participating (or even considering) activities that I could not do when pre diabetes. The irony is that diabetes might have helped me live longer (who knows?) and, if not longer, certainly better. Now, it is pretty much auto-pilot as far as diet.

    What drives you bananas?

    This has really been bugging me lately. I've noticed that when I go to order something online, after I order it, I'll get an e-mail stating that the item that I ordered is out of stock...like they couldn't have put that on their website before I ordered it? It seems that everything that I've tried to order lately is out of stock, and it's really irritating. I just ordered an inkjet printer, since the printer I'm now using is having issues, but when I went to order it, it was out of stock. I went to 5 different vendors, and they were all out of stock. I guess if I went for a high end printer, they would probably have been in stock, but I don't need a high end printer, just a printer that does a good job printing photos, and will also print on CDs and DVDs, so this printer was a reasonable $370. I just got an e-mail that said that the company now has them in stock, but they haven't shipped me one yet. It's only been three days since I got the e-mail, so hopefully they will ship it soon. My present printer still works, but I need to do a "clean printhead" every time I need to use it, otherwise, it will mix black ink with the other color inks. I tried to order a meter for a friend of mine, and it was out of stock. The dealer said that is was back ordered, and that it would ship an such and such a date. When that date came and went, the dealer e-mailed me and said that it was till on back order, and that it would ship on this new date. I went to a different vendor and found a nearly identical meter, so I ordered it from this other vendor, and canceled the order with the first vendor. I just got an e-mail from this second vendor saying that this meter was out of stock.

    irish I'm sure if you tried cooking from scratch you'd enjoy the meal much better both nutritionally & flavorsome. get off the rice & pasta & try zuchini noodles or riced cauliflower. You can easily make a nice sauce just by browning ground beef, adding onions,garlic & tomato paste.
