Yes he did - he forgot to pack his hayfever meds. Luckily I noticed and packed them with my stuff.
Thank you - it has been a very special day.
5,6 this morning so happy, happy, happy
In fact, our household is a haven of bliss at the moment as my sixteen year old son just finished his school exams doing very well and is off on a one week school geography club trip to Switzerland tomorrow.
My diabetes is definitely back under control.My glucose meter has a permanent grin attached to it.
The only shame is that despite the numbers telling me I am doing better I still feel poorly, with very low energy levels and constant fatigue. But these may not be diabetes related symptoms.
I will take the improvement in my glucose levels as one less thing to worry about and continue with my new low carb routine.
I am due to see my doctor in about a week's time after some new blood tests so we will see what he will have to say then. More rounds of tests coming up, no doubt but all in good time.
For now I am taking pleasure in seeing those glucose readings back in range
Have a great weekend everyone
@pavlosn good morning. If you have recently switched to a low carb diet your body is going through a period of readjustment so there may be a bit of ‘carb flu’ going on. The other thing that springs to mind is you should look at the nutritional values of what you eat and maybe consider a multivit supplement. I take a B complex, a slow release Vit C and fish oils daily. Just a thought! Great numbers though you are doing great. Hope your son has a safe journey and a wonderful time.
Morning All. Awake early so checking in with a 5.5 today.
Have a great Saturday everyone. Enjoy the sunshine. I hear there is crazy weather on the way for next week. Stay well, stay safe.
Beautiful sunny start to the day and a 5.8. Helping someone set up a new computer today, they've offered to 'pay' with lunch so I get to do three things I like, a walk, computers, and food Have a great weekend.
Morning all. @Krystyna23040 glad you and Mr K had a lovely day yesterday, @pavlosn really good news on your progress. That graph really shows your amazing progress and your son having negotiated the exam period safely now having a trip to Switzerland to enjoy is good to hear. @PenguinMum nice fbg, enjoy family time this weekend even if you will doubtless be busy being mum. We have 2 sons coming today plus a village beer, cider, gin and proseco festival - not drinking currently but funds raised will be used for community facilities so happy to pay. @alf_Josiah heed the friendly words re pets and use that humour on other topics. You are a good man so use the talents God has given you to lift up not tear down. @HarrisonK sounds like your day just needs a lottery win to top it off - enjoy the day win or not.
That is brilliant!
I get ‘paid’ with lunch too for helping ‘oldies’ work their iPads and tablets!
Sunny here too. Enjoy your day.
5.8 for me
9.2 this morning
Sun has been out since dawn
Blue skies and fluffy white clouds. A cloud gazing type day.
Might do some painting of pictures later....
Have a good day
5.5 for me today. Still no idea why my afternoon and early evening readings are so high. Drank no coffee after 7 am yesterday ( nearly killed me) but still high 6's and 7's. Perhaps I am actually antipodean and it is dawn phenomenon
Today consists of work and taking the dogs to be groomed and then administering the 3 monthly flea treatment. Another day of excitement.
My last set of bloods revealed low heamoglobin and iron levels and also low vitamin D (ironic as this is linked to sunshine and that is the one thing we have in abandance here in Cyprus).
These are probably the cause of the fatigue, which was there even before the switch to low carb so although carb flow may be part of it, it is unlikely to be the whole story
Bloods also showed very high CRP and ESR level. Both of these are indicators of inflamation somewhere in the body.
The whole thing requires further investigation to determine the underlying cause. I already underwent gastroscopy and colonoscopy both of which came out clear.
The plan is that I will repeat my blood analysis next week, see if the upnormal counts persist and decide with the doctor what to do/test next.
In the meantime, I have been concentrating on getting my glucose back under control.
5.6 this morning very early around 5:30. Last night was the first the Dennis had spent on his own downstairs in his crate so I was keen to check up on him. Happy to say all was well, water bowl not upended, newspaper not ripped to shreds so no signs of distress.
I’ve loved reading your cat toilet and bath tales @gennepher @SaskiaKC and @PenguinMum. They are so funny. Have any of you seen the ‘Dog’s diary Cat’s diary’ its hilarious - the difference between how dogs and cats view their days. Google it.
Good morning folks, a straight 6.0 on the testing dice today, another Saturday at the coalface but it's an early finish at around 2pm, have a lovely day all.
Good morning chums.. following on from my day at headingly and yesterday’s 3.3 I’m up and about as we are going to cheer on my cousin in his 250 th park run in bakewell today. I’ve never been a fan of that pudding stuff so I’ll find other such delicacies.
So I’m at a resplendent 5.9 this morning. After my week of ups, downs, wobbles and general meh ness ( no cold for about a month now either). Huzzah!
Have a wonderful weekend peeps .. kim xx
Morning...awful day in traffic yesterday...three hours to get to London navigating through so many police cordons & road works...endless three ways traffic controls...home around 7:30pm and broke out the millionaires shortbread...despite that a good sleep...and woke to a 6.1
Great FBG and great news that Dennis settled for the night. I think you and he have achieved a lot in a week. He is a clever boy.
Going off to Google....
We seem to visit more regularly these days as the commodity of time dwindles. Most airlines are very good at getting her on and off their planes.
Bedtime bg was 6.7, and the reading this my7.2 - which basically reflects my night of ‘sleep.’
We had a good drive here yesterday through the beautiful Peak District, fabulous weather and lovely scenery. At Chesterfield I took a wrong lane (as far as I could see they were all marked A61 which didn’t tell me much as that number wasn’t on my route) so we ended up on a more scenic route for a while until we met the road to Buxton again. I’d manage to stop and re-program Jane on the Tom Tom, who rather cleverly directed us through narrow and very high roads to meet the A6 again. OH has little faith in Jane’s abilities and made worried noises most of the way. But she proved him wrong as usual.
Our friend had cooked very clever LC food for us which showed in my bg last by. Apparently she did some goggling to decide on her shopping list. Such a lovely kind person.
