Cold! Initially they predicted a warm up . . . but not happening! At least the sun is out and no precip.

Mom had a tired day. But cooperative w/physical therapy so that’s a positive.

Clara and I are going to IL Saturday. Sooooo it will be a long day, but have all I need together.

Thursday – rain, freezing drizzle/rain, snow in the morning yesterday, but then the sun ended up coming out! Supposed to be a little warmer today. PHEW. Want to get an outdoor walk in.

Feeling like plans are a little closer to being gelled, so that’s a bit of a relief! Ok, it’s a HUGE relief.

Dad is agreeable to stay here and I’ll probably go with choice #1 for Mom’s continued rehab. If and when the time comes they can be together in a condo w/24/7 care for Mom, we’ll do it together, Dad and I. I just have found talking with him that will work best. The facility for Mom is only 10 minutes away, so no problem going there anytime!

Thursday and can see the weekend.

Good luck to you!

thanks Joy - but this is the first endro we got in 3 years .. since the last one retired ..
I tried an internist - 1st one in that office was a complete idiot - and now the 2nd one does not do anything .. when I started back to my diabetic classes they told me about the new endro and said she was great .....ha.......
so I emailed my BS list and asked what to do this morning - told them I could not eat all the starches ...and do feel better - did not sleep today - 1 small starch at lunch because I was gone all day and starving LOL... had to eat while I made my lunch - veggies and protein rest of the day - greek yogurt for breakfast - have forgotten to check BS again - not used to checking all the time and my arms look horrible - can not do fingers or hands - too painful..
no word back yet ..

About nine months ago I had to take the helm on my own diabetes because both the VA and local doctors are horrible here where I live. I would love to move out of this area but must wait several years til my son and his wife come back from duty in Hawaii in about five years. They will relocate to North TX probably but they could change their minds and go to Washington State for all I know at this point. So I am waiting this time out where I am since I live on a budget that is pretty tight. I am doing this diet controlled because I didn't need any medications for my levels. But I was turned loose with no advice whatsover and very few test strips, so I buy my own. I dug in here with the nutrition tracker to fight my magnesium and Vitamin D lows. I was actually amazed at how caloric needs increase so fast with even a little effort one will put into play, for exercise. I have been recovering from severe low magnesium symptoms and frozen shoulder. I am feeling so much better now. I have lost 25 lbs about. I still need to get 15 more pounds off and tone up, but I will get there. I have my BG down to normal levels most of the time but the dawn phenomenon can get me or if I indulge too much in carbs of course. I think sometimes the doctors want us to eat too many carbs and yet just 30 a day is it? On the LCHF doesn't work either. If anything I did have to increase my carbs after a while. My main frustration is the quality of the produce in the one local store here that sells it and no access to gardening or farmers market consistently with enough variety in a tiny town to can my own. I would love to have a small homestead, as I like that lifestyle but it's elusive at this point, so I am doing the best I can.
I will be trying to get in some good fishing for I live in country that provides that availability and will see if I can stock my freezer at least for the summer ( its a small freezer). It would be better than the store bought farmed fish that has no real levels of all the good stuff they claim fish has for our diets. ( Only wild fish does, btw).
But at least I am mostly in normal ranges, if anything now to a point where I have to watch it very carefully so I do not go low. As one drops, it can feel pretty weird at first , if you are new to that, even in normal ranges if you have been high. In another group elsewhere on line I see so many ending up in DKA too. My mom was a type 1 diabetic all her adult life and she lived well into her 70s before complications from undiagnosed celiacs and some tainted salad put her body into a terrible state the last year of her life. She never went into DKA before that last year, because she was careful. She did very well, and I am trying to do the same so I don't get many complications but I do have neuropathy and it is getting worse. I am going to work on my stamina and some strength gaining and walking this year. Maybe I can get so I can hike in for a night or two on local trails here. I live in a beautiful area. I am glad the spring melt has started. Winter is very hard on someone on foot and I tended to just stay inside because ice and windchills are dangerous around here in northern NY. I look forward to getting out in the fresh air sooner than later now.
I wish I had a decent endo but the VA won't even refer me for that.

I would find a new endo. And tell the old one why you are leaving in no uncertain terms. You will not listen to me so I will find someone who will take my concerns seriously.

as I said my new endro is not listening to me - so I will self medicate with thyroid -
question was about glipizide
- and she wants me to eat starches at every meal - too much for me - carbs over 100 with that - I like my low carb veggies and eat small fruit in the morning - even that is about 100 carbs -

Sunday – got back from IL late last night. BUT my Dad brought up the topic of moving up here to be closer all on his own! OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG my brother and I looked @ each other a bit stunned but jumping on this bandwagon while the team is still hitched up!

I could not believe how horrible the service is @ this rehab facility. Broke my heart. Mom needed to get back to bed. Now, mind you, I probably could have done it myself with my brother’s help, BUT she was in a panicked state. It took 8 minutes for them to answer the damn call bell. My brother and I finally snagged someone who said they’d get help. Well, they DIDN’T. My brother approached this person again. Now bear in mind that my brother is an imposing figure . . . . 6 ft. 3 and L-A-R-G-E. He could have eaten this person for a snack! He just glared @ this guy and said, “I am GOING to get help for my Mother now. Are you going to help or not?” This guy so much as indicated he was ‘busy’. Okee dokee then. So I went up to the nurses station and asked for help and someone did come. All I could think of while seething inside was “What if this person was on the ground? Would they be doomed to wait till someone discovered them?” I have the card for both the CFO, CEO and Nursing Administrator (whom I have spoken to on the phone a few times to get medications straightened out!) That’s it for me. NO family should go thru that . . . ever. I just cannot believe the quality of care (or lack thereof) that Mom received in both hospital and at this rehab facility. It is just appalling to me how HORRIBLY especially the elderly are treated. Like they’re disposable. Ok, I need to get off this band wagon before I set it on FIRE!

Thanks for all the prayers . . . I believe He provided this miracle.

Baby: good job!

SPIRIT: All I can tell you is that 100 carbs would be way over what my body could handle. Type 2 is a carbohydrate intolerance! That means it needs to be carefully monitored.

I would definitely pursue the thyroid issue with an endo. I have that as well. It DOES make a difference.

Hi all , is anyone on glipizide only ?? the only meds I have ever taken was byetta - and it was not working anymore - saw a new endro and she put me on low dose of gipizide - I do need it increased but just want to know what others are doing first -
weight went up with thyroid - doc does not believe that -so will not see her for thyroid - but my BS numbers are higher than ever and I eat right .. was lower carb 100... now she said to eat starchs with every meal- .. makes me tired or puts me to sleep - slept 5 hours yesterday and just had tomato soup with baked grill cheese - and I use the little round multigrain 100 cal bread.. 12 carbs or so ......

OH boy! Glad you had the protein bars, but even more glad that Triple A was able to get to you to help w/the flat. **SIGH**

Last week I wrote about having a busy day and doing great on my time management things to do list, only to forget to eat lunch and then having a bad case of low blood sugar.

Decided that I needed to carry the food with me and to have some handy.

Would you believe that yesterday, I bought some protein bars and then got busy with other things yesterday, then was driving to eat out with some friends. On the way to the restaurant, my car hit a pothole and I got a flat tire and there was no spare tire in the car (fyi--check this, there wasn't one in the new to me car that I got a couple of months ago.)

Triple A was busy and although they called my situation of where I was a "top priority" I had to wait almost two hours for a tow truck. Those protein bars saved me, I was really grateful that I had them.

Best to me, right? .....and to you!

at our y they're offering a type 2 diabetes group and there are six people present at the first meeting.

Good to go over general information and see how others are coping with this common disease amongst us

Had a good endo checkup. Blood pressure, A1c, Cortisol all good. But my TSH was low so he cut my Levo in half. Having ultrasound on thyroid next month to see if there is a change in the goiters.

So...followup question. Is wheat bread really bad for us? What about oatmeal? I'm confused

a new experience for me. I'm careful about eating meals, but today got busy.......then this afternoon things started to get black.......couldn't figure out what was happening, then I took my blood sugar and I was at 82. Ate, and then measured again, things ok.

Opps, silly me....duh!

James: Right you are!

Friday – Slowly warming up. Glad of that for sure!

Mom walked 80 ft. w/her walker today. Very confused but Dad brought some music. That calms her down.

Otherwise, IT’S FRIDAY!

Like 1CRAZYDOG wrote, it is net carbs (all but fibre) that raise blood sugar. Sugar is really bad, but other carbs are really not much better.

Wheat for example, though not sweet tasting is 80% carbs, quite close to the 100% of sugar.

Count your carbs!

BABY: Just keep track of what you're eating and see if there's a pattern of what you've eaten and your blood sugar (I think you mentioned that you do that anyhow). Good luck!
