"Hi Sam! Just wanted to say that it is not perhaps our blood is thicker, but rather, is really is thicker. The dietitian called it "sticky blood". I think that happens if dehydration sets in."

"The doctor said that Januvia would not cause lows, but just even me out. With the Lantus, I am within range, but still all over the place. He said I might not need as much insulin. WELL!! How would I know if I don't go low, I ask? Supposedly, I…"

Holy Cow !!!

Well, I hope I have had a permanent break through. The Lantus is still keeping me within range but still too many highs and lows. The doctor put me on Januvia, which I take at dinner time. He did not tell me the bad stuff about it though.I found that out on my own. It will not make you gain weight but you might not lose any either.Is this as good as it is going to get with my weight? Always some thing!!

The worst part is I could develop a tumor from the Januvia. OH MY GOD!!!I wonder how…

Improving... but not fast enough for my liking

My last A1c was 8.9. I know it is still too high, but, it is a great improvement from the last two.

My insulin has been changed 3 times in the last couple of months from 75/25 to Levemir, which I had a reaction to, then to Lantus. This is much better. I still might have to go on Januvia if I cannot bring the spikes down at 10 AM. I may have to bring the carbs down to 2 at breakfast. I am supposed to have 3, but today, I spiked to 11.4. As soon as I sat down, I wanted to sleep. It…

Thank you for having me as a friend Cheryl....yes, you indeed need to talk to a specialist about this! Many hugs....and please keep in touch. This is all not only frustrating, but overwhelming.

Oh my goodness Cheryl....so sorry to hear about that. You would think that the stapling, which lends to smaller portions, would have a desirable effect and REDUCE your blood sugars! Nothing is simple, is it? I gather you have discussed this at length with your doctor.
What about a dietitian? Please pray for discernment. This is to much for you alone.
Keep me posted, OK......and drop by anytime to chew the fat :)
