    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.

    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!

    105 That's the lowest reading that I had in a long time. I am heading up to the cottage on Cape Cod this morning to be at the cottage when hurricane Dorian passes by Friday night, Saturday morning. It is supposed to be a catagory 1 or tropical storm and the Cape is supposed to get 40 - 50 mph winds (64 - 80 kph) with several inches of rain. I don't expect any damage except for tree limbs coming down and power outages. I'm bringing water (I have well water there), flashlights, battery powered radio, and a gas camp stove but I don't think I will need them, it shouldn't be any worse than a thunderstorm. Last night I had a tornado warning where I live, we had a line of storms pass by at sunset. A little worried when they issued the warning and the warning box included my town, radar showed rotation in the clouds.

    112 I have not taken ANY Novolog since Sunday. Been eating very low carb and getting good readings and not needing it. You can't imagine how happy I am about that. Oh wait....I'm talking to a bunch of fellow diabetics, so I guess y'all can imagine. Lol. I despise taking insulin.
