    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.

    79mg/dL this morning. My average FBG last January was 120+mg/dL. Since last January...I've lost 46 lbs. I'm literally starving myself thinner. 31 lbs to go and I'll be able to dig out my old clothes. The last time I was this weight was in 1996. My original mantra still stands in regards to weight loss. 'You wanna lose weight...push yourself away from the table a little earlier and trade that 18" dinner plate in for a salad plate'.

    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!)

    2020 Morning FBG readings

    64 This morning. I started Whole30 on Thursday. Last night I decided I'd lower my lantus by 2 units because my daytime numbers had been lower than normal and I was 80 at bedtime. Glad I lowered it. Now, today, my Libre says that I haven't been over 100 since yesterday at 3:00 PM when I was slightly over 100 after lunch. Thinking I'll probably lower Lantus a bit again tonight. Maybe just one 1 unit.

    98 today. 18,849 km (11,712 miles) cycled last year. At 25 mpg, that is roughly 468.5 gallons of gas I didn't have to buy. Came damned close to that 12,000 mile goal in spite of illness.

    91 today. To quote the late George Carlin, at voir dire, simply explain "I would make a great juror because I can spot guilty people just like that!" Gail sent me these great socks and keychain for my birthday. Cool accessories make you go faster...

    2019 Morning Fasting BG Readings

    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!

    Awesome job! I asked for a compromise and halved my dose to just once a day. If I can get it back under 5 and keep it there, I'll drop it all together.
