is there any kind of natural thing anyone does to stop this ridiculousness? i have been diabetified since nov 2011 but up till a couple of months ago i had been spared this fun part of the beetus. my sugar is all out of whack here. i feel like as soon as i dare to add that extra unit of basal its gonna all go back to normal and ill have a gross night hypo.
Hello Carla Yes i use have a male endo like that also who said i would never have children or marry,Well am married and have two children in there late teens and early twenties.
Uumm. Don't want to intrude. But 6+ years post total hysterectomy (oophrectomy); my hot flashes are still debilitating, night and day. If you want to mess around with hormones, you need to buy some endocrinology textbooks and study them in detail. Believe me that's what I've been doing, including enlisting the advice of my gay daughter who is a scientist trying to get pregnant for the second time.
It is VERY complex. Hormones rule in some ways, as Gerri is saying.
As to cycles---only an idiot would claim they don't impact our BS. I have tracked a hotflash on my meter every few seconds----gradually up 18 points and then gradually back 18 points as it receded......Study everything. Test everything. Good luck...Judith in Portland
I should introduce him to an endo I had who stated stress didn't effect BG. When I insisted it did, he gave me a condescending, patronizing look. Could hear what he was thinking--another emotional woman.
Oh yes, Gerri. Yes on that subject. Yes on fibromyalgia finally diagnosed in 1996 though so discounted as the hysterical woman previously.....
Know what you endured with that. I get the hysterical woman attitude from my doctor about hypothyroidim. Women deemed hysterical were given hysterectomies as a "cure" not that long ago & some still are. Hmmm, a too dominate male. Let's castrate.
A dear friend had an undiagnosed parathyroid tumor. She went to four or five doctors who told her she had an emotional problem, gave her tranquilizers & referred her to counseling. Never mind that calcium being excreted caused her problem. When she was about to give up that any doctor would take her symptoms as physical, she found a doctor who diagnosed her properly.
this is the highest i have ever woke up, omg, 186? wtf!!! if i normally take 5 units of basal at night, how much extra should i add? ive already put it up to six but its like injecting sugary air into me.
