I take insulin, but in Canada, the pump is "reserved" for Type 1 Diabetics..... at least that is what my doctor told me when I asked about it..... I did some research and the monthly cost is prohibitive so even if my doctor would refer me for one, I would not be able to afford the ongoing monthly costs......

I hope someone else has the answers to your questions....

It has been a while since anyone posted on this thread. How is everyone doing?

I got some rhubarb today at church. Now I am wondering if anyone has some good recipes using it.... I usually just stew it, or maybe add some strawberries and stew the 2 together, but would love some new ideas.....

Have a great evening.

Had labwork done on Friday and saw doc yesterday. He is very pleased with MOST of the results. My liver and kidney function is good, my cholesterol is perfect (it has taken many years of trial and error to get good results on that!), my electrolytes are all good but my potassium level is borderline (normal but just normal) so he wants me to eat more oranges, bananas and potatoes.)

UG! I am not enthusiastic about oranges and definitely cannot bring myself to eat one every day. Bananas only if they are still firm and slightly on the green side (I don't eat them if they have brown spots on them) and I have trying to cut down on the simple carbs to try to get my BS back in control.........

But my Blood Pressure is way high even though I am on 3 types of BP meds a day..... Also, I am once again having a problem again with swelling of my feet and ankles.

But after asking if I was taking my meds faithfully every day, he did not make any changes to other than to ask me to take my BP reading at home every day and I am to weigh myself every second day. We wanted me to come back in 3 weeks but it is very difficult for me to get to his office and requires my BIL to take 2 hours off work to drive me, so I asked if I could just phone in the results. He said yes, and after additional blood work in 3 weeks, he said he would phone me of anything of note in those results..... So here's hoping!

Went to the doc again today. My thyroid has not improved to where he wants it to be so he has doubled the dose.

I have to have my electrolytes tested on Oct 5th as that will be exactly 4 weeks from when I started the new med and stopped taking the problem one. He will also have it checked again when I go back end of the month for the thyroid retest and also doing an A1C at that time. I don't remember ever having electrolytes tested before, at least not that I recall.....

Sis and BIL also had annual medicals today at the same time. Her blood work all came back perfect so she does not have to go back until her 3 month test in December. But BIL has has some med adjustments so he also has to go back end of October so we managed to get back to back appointments. Sure hope things start to even out soon so I don't have to go back every month..... I am getting so tired of it!

It was so cold this morning. It is nearing freezing overnight but up to about 12 to 15 degrees in the afternoon. I love the cooler afternoons (as opposed to the mid to high twenties we had over the summer) but I forgot a sweater or coat when I left my place yesterday afternoon so I was a bit cold when we left my sister's place this morning...... The trees have barely started turning colour yet, it has been so warm in September. I guess they will start turning now that it has cooled off.....

Just a little over 2 weeks to our (Canadian) Thanksgiving....... Time marches on, doesn't it..... lol

I can almost see my ankles again for the first time sine before Easter. Taking me totally off the med Norvasc and replacing it with another med is working! Still a bit of swelling, but at least going in the right direction........

Hi and Welcome, ABOND

I hope you get good lab results tomorrow..... How long have you been diabetic? Are you on meds?

I just realized last week that it has been almost 30 years since I was first diagnosed with Syndrome X and 20 years since I started oral meds. ( I have been on insulin for over 10 years.)

Stay in touch. We would love to hear how you are doing.....

Well I got back from the doctor a short time ago. He is happy that my Thyroid levels are coming down and could still continue to drop (as I have only been on the med for a month) so he has not made any changes to the Synthroid and will check levels again next month. If it is not in normal range by the end of September, he will up the strength a bit.....

As for the Blood Pressure meds, he is not totally happy as my legs are still swollen (but not nearly as bad as they were a month ago and hardly any blisters since Monday.....). He wants to take me off the problem med altogether but can't because my BP has climbed slightly with the lower dose..... I am on two different BP meds and the one keeps my potassium up but when I was taking 2 a day, it (potassium) got too high and that is not good for heart health. That's why he upped the other which is what is causing the current problems. I am also on a fairly high dose of Lasix which is a water pill and he cannot increase that and still be within acceptable recommendations for that drug...... He jokingly called me a problem patient (as far as this goes)

So he is going to talk to another doctor who has a lot of diabetic patients and also a pharmacist to see what they recommend. He said he may have phone me to adjust things, but in the meantime to just keep on with my current doses...... He weighed me again and I have gained so I have to try harder to loose. That is so hard for me to do at the best of times, and even harder when under pressure.......

I had to go to the lab yesterday for bloodwork, and back to the doctor tomorrow. Things are not totally back on track, but much better than they have been. Still problems with my legs but on a positive note, I do think the thyroid med is making a difference......

How is Tuesday treating you so far....

Yes, I live in a rural area. Closest big city is Syracuse, 20+ miles away. There is farm on one side, farm in back of us, apple orchard on the other side and a wooded area in front. I love it. We have deer near almost every day, and foxes, wild turkeys, ring-necked pheasant, coyotes, and bald eagles occasionally.

Linda, I am sure he isn't going to want to keep you on a med that isn't producing results. I am praying this will resolve soon.

Well here it is the 16th of August already, only a couple more weeks left of summer.... Where did the time fly.

I feel like summer has zipped on by without me..... I am still laid up with the water blisters and leg swelling...... still having a hard time walking and can't sit for very long at a time. I have another appointment with the doc in a couple of weeks. So far the weaning me off the offending med has not produced the result hoped for. I just hope Doc will agree to take me off it altogether and find another med.......

How is everyone doing? Hope you are having a good summer.......

Woke up this morning to temps in the mid 50's. Sure felt good to have some hot coffee to go with it. Haven't seen any deer yet today but who knows? We've nicknamed one Spot, and he eats the apples off the tree way in the back.

How is everyone?

Legs still very swollen and still getting all kinds of blisters. Saw the doc again today and he had adjusted my meds a bit more but now I also have thyroid problems so he is starting me on something for that. Hopefully that might kick start the metabolism and I can start loosing weight again (I am so sick of gaining!!!!)

He told me to please be patient with him as he looks for the answers but said if he made too many adjustments all at once it would be difficult to know which adjustment caused what effect. (sigh)

I still have to lay down a lot because he says by sitting with my hips at right angles, it is putting a "kink" in the artery that does allow the blood to flow back up the legs...

I am so sick of this......

Hello, y'all! Checking in this morning on what looks to be a beautiful day up here in NYS. I am Type II, just diagnosed in May so I am trying to learn all I can.

Have a terrific day!

Has anyone ever tried making pulled pork sandwiches? If so, what recipe did you use?

Pork Loin is on sale this week and I've been wanting try it but commercial BBQ sauces have way to much sodium for my health. I have to restrict my sodium intake.....

So I'm still searching but any recommendations would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Hope everyone has a safe & Happy July 4th!
Ours was quite for the most part, we did go out to Applebees for supper ---love the 2 for $ 20! I had the sirloin with steamed broccoli & mashed potatoes, Kenny had the riblet basket. Then went & got most of the groceries for our family cookout on Saturday.

Today we are picking up 3 of our grandchildren, a 4th will be here later to all spend the night. This is going to be a fun evening, 2 @ 7 years, a 3 year old & a 2 year old.

It was so HOT here yesterday, the temp was about 30 degrees with a 99 percent humidity. They said it felt around 40 degrees. I don't know about where you live, but here, it seems so hot because we very seldom hit that high....

My power was out for awhile and without the fan it was almost more than I could handle. The last place I lived, I could just pop out and catch a bus and be at the (air conditioned) mall in about 10 minutes but this apartment is much further away from any malls.

We had thunder storm warning and tornado watch for last evening. We did get the T-storm but have not heard if there were any tornadoes in the area.

Hope everyone has a great 4th!
