Oh dear I sigh, as another virus comes my way and has me coughing my lungs out somewhat. It’s less the drowsy feeling and the pains in the chest whenever I have a real good cough that bother me, it’s the blood sugar levels getting so out of whack that troubles me.
Liver la vida loca
I wish I could tell my liver, “It’s ok, I’ll handle the sugar provision this time. Please don’t drop another two teaspoons of glucose into my blood again!”
But, alas, it’s useless. There my body goes again and dutifully dumps half a sack of sugary non-goodness into my weary arteries. Crazy liver indeed.
Having been following a relatively low carb for the last two years, my blood sugar levels are as good as they’ve been, and have been for the best part of these last 24 months. I like to think that it’s helping to keep the diabetic complications at bay. Furthermore, with better controlled diabetes I feel better each day.
Probably the only downside that I’ve noticed is the huge increase in price of my weekly shopping bill.
