5.4 for me have a good day everyone
4.8 this morning am surprised as made a rhubarb crumble yesterday and thought that would send levels up
Well, an interesting read.
My GP gave me the simplest explanation for controlling blood sugars:
Your insulin has to be shared between all the cells in your body.
The fewer the cells, the more insulin each cell gets.
So - the lighter your body - the better the blood sugars.
A bit simplistic but simple explanations that give a visual representation are usually the best and basically, what enables us to shed cells is sorting out a WOE that works and increasing movement.
What you are doing is clearly working for you - happy days (overall - with some fed up bits chucked in to remind you that you are human).
Good Morening Ladies and Gentlemen and all who partake in nation bin day, remember bin day is truly tolerant of all irrespective of colour, type or creed.
After a bad night ( details omitted to protect eyesight ) a smiling 6.7 for me and me's this morning, I am now worried my meter is planning something.........
Well folks remember, remember what you may well ask, but not me I've forgotten already.
@dunelm Thank you!
I like that simple visual picture.
The 'fed up bits' will be my cue to reassess what went on before...
Morning All. 6.0 today, odd day yesterday, very tired all day, didnt eat lunchtime on.
@DJC3 good luck to you today and especially tomo. Also best wishes to your daughter with her consultation. @pavlosn hope the cold doesnt get too bad! @dunelm hope your mum arrives safely. @Bubbsie hope today isnt so hectic.
Havent had time yet to catch up properly. Off for my review with new DN in a minute.
Have a good Wed. Stay well, stay safe.
Good luck PM...I'm just settling down to another coffee & breakfast too soon for another hectic day...just a little pottering about & a walk with 'Plumpy'
That sounds exactly how much my husband packs - it only takes him 10 minutes. It takes me longer than that to read through my packing list, update it then run it off.
An unsurprising 6.5 for me. Might not bother testing for a day or two, not really useful.
Daughter’s appt was pretty inconclusive, a locum doctor and a load more tests ordered but no attempt to bring hospital appt and colonoscopy forward ( it’s not til Oct. a long wait for something so debilitating)
@PenguinMum hope all goes well with the DN today, I’m sure she’ll be thrilled with you.
@Krystyna23040 I love a list too. I often start a ‘to do’ list with stuff I have already done, just so I can tick them off straight away!
@gennepher I was so impressed by your post and they way you’ve worked out what works for you. Well done.
Have a good day
Not at all. I do the same.
FBG 6.5 on a morning of lowering grey clouds. The rain has stopped for now, and the bug taking shelter on my window-screen has flown away before being spotted by the KittenCat.
@gennepher back home and have had time to read your earlier post about the success you have had eating your day’s food in the first half of the day. It is very interesting and inspiring to others to try and tweak our habits of eating as required. I am lucky that if I eat the right (for me) food in the right quantities at traditional times I seem to manage ok (for now). However you have illustrated how improvements are possible from changing up what and when we eat. Thanks for sharing.
@DJC3 thats a bit disappointing for your daughter (and you) that they couldnt bring forward her hospital appointment and colonoscopy. I wonder what timeline the rules of entitlement are. Difficult week for you but I’m sure your check up tomo will be good.
Keeping all xd. X
I hope your appointment with the DN went well.
My new DN is young enthusiastic and knows a bit about the success of low carb. We had a good conversation, she agreed starches arent good but as regards offering meters on dx she said it would be too costly. She and her mum are currently doing the Mosely 800 cal diet for her mum to lose weight (neither Diabetic) but she said they feel hungry a lot of the time. I pointed her to this website which she agreed was far more informative than the other one. She concluded that most of her older patients just dont want to give up the basics (ie. bread, potatoes) so she encourages them to cut back. All interesting! I got a smiley sticker btw.
It’s turning into a right old week. Optician is now sending me straight up to Moorfields eye hospital. The glittery halo in my left eye ( which was the reason I made the appt) might be retinal detachment and needs urgent attention. It’s definitely not the cancer spreading (she said that presents differently which is a relief ). Blooming heck! It’s all go here. Might not get to post again - more of those stinging drops gone in my eyes. I’ll check in tomorrow. Hope everyone else has a more peaceful day.
That sounds interesting denelm. But I thought our cells were insulin resistant and that that was why the glucose levels were so high. I’m getting confused. Help!
Hope Moorfileds goes well. Not good but speedy referral and treatment should mean less time to "dwell" on it.
I thought issues like this were put on a pathway where there are strict time limits...I wonder if it's worth asking what the time frame should be?...how frustrating for you all.
