Well it is time! I needed a new outlook and commitment.
After spending the past 3 weeks in horrible, debilitating pain (6 days in hospital) it gave me the jump-start I needed to re-evaluate my nutrition priorities. The prednisone and insulin is a huge factor in careful monitoring of my carbs and calories. When I got my first dose the pain eased and then my glucose levels sky-rocketed to over 400.
The doctor ran a myriad of tests and blood work and still no absolute picture of what is going on other than it is some sort of inflammatory disease. Possible for Drug Induced Lupus. I see a rhuematologist late August.
It has been a horrible 3 weeks. But currently I am able to move with very little pain. Bare with me while I mainly track my foods. At some later time I will come back in earnest as long as my hands allow. (right now I am able to use my iPod app which has Siri so I don't have to type.)
Thank you for your patience
