    2019 Morning Fasting BG Readings

    95. Two sub 100 days in a row. Did a 7K walk yesterday in about 1H 15M. Uneventful except that I enjoyed myself. A little more tiring than I expected but I can bounce back.

    2019 Morning Fasting BG Readings

    Hi guys, back again to share my latest A1C results- 4.8 YAY!!!!!!! 🤩 I can't even..omg! Oh and seen a few fastings in the 4s! Only testing when I eat something that deviates from my norm. Had a pork hock today with one baby potato and some saurkraut. had a spoonful of spaetzle (sp.). 2 hr pp it was 5.4! not bad at all so umm my doctor wants me to stop metformin. uh..nervous. but will see what happens to that A1C after i stop. i am taking 500 mg x 2 a day. -- fasting this morning was 4.7- 80 something (this doesn't happen often i am sure as i don't test daily but it was nice to see!)

    54 Its been a long while since I was on these forums. I went off the low carb diet after emigrating and struggled through 2-3 years of bad blood glucose readings and terrible hba1cs. Back on a low carb diet now and on Friday I got my first CGM - took 2 days and a lot of frustration to get it working properly, but its been fantastic today and my sugars have not gone high today though I've been low twice, but I think that was because I was back at work after a short break. Hopefully my next Hba1c will be much better than the last.

    93 today. Every day, I feel a little more better. I am a little confounded because I have come to realize that 100% seems to be a highly variable target when considering how I am feeling. I think, "today is 100%" then the next day, I feel just a wee bit stronger, more alert mentally, or something. Believe me, this is a great problem to have. It also brought home to me that I must have been pretty ill. I tend to dismiss illness as a coping mechanism. I am thinking, today after work, I am going to try a bike ride. I feel ready.

    2019 Morning Fasting BG Readings

    Free at last! Free at last! I got home about 90 minutes ago. 157 again. Now that I am off IV and steroids, I am hoping that will resolve. I am urinating glucose too. No surprises there. This is a setback on my control but it had to be done. Still, from what I have seen can happen on steroids, fasting at 157 is not too horrible. So I ended up having "only" viral meningitis which would have likely self resolved. That was not a likely cause for my seizures. The neurologist is of the opinion that scar tissue from that burr hole has begun pressing on my brain. I had a small episode last night where I stuttered only. It lasted less than 30 seconds. I was disappointed but there is no control I have over that. I am home. I will be taking anti-seizure medicine for now. By state law, I cannot operate a motor vehicle without being seizure free for 6 months. It is believed I can use my bicycle after giving the medicine I am taking a chance to build up in my system (about 1 week). My employer will likely allow my adult son, Tim, to drive me to work sites. I don't have to roll too often. I am happy to ride my bike for errands. I do it anyway. So this begins a new trail on the road of my life. I don't like the idea of just throwing medicine at me in the beginning but, thinking this through, it is the right course. The goal is to not have seizures and I realize I can be seriously hurt so an abundance of caution is probably good. I see the neurologist on 3 months time for further evaluation. I do plan, however to see if my PCP would consider sending me to another neurologist for a 2nd opinion. Admittedly I just saw this doctor after my stutter incident and I felt like he was brushing me off. I was being emotional. Still, this is a big deal. I learned the valuable lesson of getting facts and information from here. The more information I have the better informed decisions I can make. I would like to join an epilepsy forum since people that live with this will have the best practical advice. If anyone here has any recommendations, I would appreciate them. Thank you for your well wishes and posts they kept me cheered up while in the hospital. ~ Mike

    85 on this "Spooktacular" day! I've experimented and have eaten whole food/plant based for the past two days. No meat, fish, poultry, dairy, etc. Good readings this morning and yesterday. And I had a crash yesterday afternoon a couple hours after lunch and Novolog. Seems my body doesn't need so much insulin when I put healthy food into it. What a concept. Happy Halloween everyone! Boooooooooo!

    86 today. This photo, credit to Tianne Photography, is of a bridge coming into Hilo on Highway 19. The beach, called Honoli'i, is good for surfing. Taking the bridge on the highway on a bike is a little hairy. There is no shoulder so you either take the lane to cross the bridge or there is a walkway that is mossy and has a railing that goes up to your knee (when on the bike). I suppose, under the wrong circumstances, you could fly over the railing. Coming back in there is no walkway. There is also a road (you can see it on the left) that goes under the bridge and is quite scenic, following the river a short way. I usually go out early Sunday on this route since there is little traffic. I take the walkway going out and the road under the bridge coming back in.

    Been MIA. My sons and I took last week off work to make a push at sorting my mother's house. She passed away a year ago yesterday. It's rough. Anyway, that plus a second round of PG&E power shutoffs over the weekend is my explanation. Morning readings since last I was here are: 98, 95, 87, 143, 132, 76, 68, 137, and 78 today. I need to settle down.

    134 Windy and gusty rain as expected. I had to go out in it early to buy groceries and take them to church. It's my teams turn to cook tomorrow morning. Usually have about 100 folks come eat which includes about 25 less fortunate (homeless, etc.) that know we serve breakfast every Sunday. We fix up scrambled eggs (plain and cheese), biscuits, cheese grits, sausage gravy, potato casserole, pigs in a blanket, fresh fruit, milk, juice, coffee. Of course my team makes the best breakfast.
