    Afternoon, not posted for a while as I have been in a bad place and not been in control at all, but I have shaken myself up and from high readings of over 10 just under 2 weeks ago, I am now averaging 4.5 and feeling so much more positive. A combination of 1 tablet a day from the DR just for a while he says to get my levels better and very strict low carbing.
    How many pugs have you got Granny_grump_ we have only got one now as we lost the other 9 months ago, they are such a worry with their eyes aren't they.

    [email protected] we have two black boy and girl we bought Louie from being a puppies he's 10 now Elle is 11 she was a rescue ex breeding ***** who we had spayed no more puppies for her, I've got vet bills coming out of my ears for the last year Elle with her eyes teeth ears and now she is having investigations into why she suddenly when asleep she cannot get her breath,we think the vet damaged her oesophagus when they did dental work on her last September. And Louie now has struvite crystals so special diet costing £100 per month,but it's what you have to do if you care about them and we have had dogs for nearly 40 years we love them like we do our children.
    How old was your pug and what age is your other these are our first pugs so unsure of their life expectancy would guess around 10 years to 16 but like humans we a live to different ages,we never have same breed twice all our dogs have lived to be just short of their 14 th birthdays, cocker spaniels,boxer yorkies all rescued then pugs!

    good morning all :)

    4.7 today

    got to be over at mum's a bit earlier today with our Sunday meal because a man is coming to look at a fallen tree in her garden with a view to taking it out, we're hoping he will take it down safely and chop it up :)

    Good morning you awesome lot.. happy Sunday my friends. I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend so far..

    5.5 @ 2130

    6.3 @ 0215 (3 unit of nova rapid to stop it rising anymore) they would just keep rising

    5.6 @ 0652 (4 shot of novo to stop my pesky dp taking over and chugging out a low 8 like normal. A lie in now and I’m shooting up quite high)

    Still struggling since my dads passing, still on my very strict low carb diet.. dr Bernstein’s approach.

    ;)

    Good Morning, 5.6 this morning after a night out at a friend's. Woke at midnight with headache and worried that my sugars were raging but tested at 4.6. It's a pity he scales were less forgiving. I was really good with exercise yesterday and will repeat today. I wish I enjoyed it, I just have to pretend, with my poor memory I might just fool myself.
