Medication Frustration

Thursday, December 20, 2012

I went to the doctor because my sugars are still elevated. The good news is that they are not in the danger zone. She upped my meds, but I'm supposed to wait until Monday. I did find out that the recommended amount of carbs I'm supposed to be eating is lower than I thought - between 100 and 150 grams! So I thought I had been doing everything right, but I need to cut the carbs even more and up the protein. Ugh.

    I am pre-diabetic and I generally eat between 100-125 G of carbs per day. You may see improved weight-loss results when you start doing this too.

    You can do it! Good luck!

    You can do this. I know you can. My mother suffered from and died with complications of type 2 Diabetes. I try to make sure I don't develop it. I also work with so many diabetics in my job (doing case management for elderly and disabled on some forms of Medicaid). It's a hard disease, but with care you can keep many of the complications from developing. I'm supporting you on this!

    Good for you in being proactive concerning the diabetes. My late husband developed type 2, and preferred just to take more meds and eat whatever he wanted. I am sure had he taken steps such as you are doing, he would have lived beyond his 58 years.
    Spark is an excellent resource. I highly recommend the different articles. I've been going down the list of ways to earn spark points each day - it's fun, and informative. Blessings on your journey to better health.
