"I found out after going into Diabetic Ketoacidosis, becoming unresponsive. My adult children took me to the ER and I was diagnosed as Type I. I had no symptoms until 3 days prior to that, and the symptoms were vague, and I attributed the exhaustion…"

"Hi Linda - I like the term you used 'Carb Aware'. I guess that describes me - I have a keyring magnifying glass that I use to examine labels in stores to examine the carb content of foods. I don't consciously total or add up all the…"

"Hey Ziggy...nice "seeing" you again. Carb counting is what I do. I'm a type 2 and not on insulin. I need to know what is in the food I eat...I read labels, I'm aware. I balance what I eat against the insulin I have "om…"

Water Aerobics and Blood Glucose Readings

Posted on September 8, 2009 at 9:35pm 0 Comments

For the past 3 weeks, I have been doing water aerobics on my own- I wear either a belt or noodle to keep me buoyant in the deep water and jog or ski for about 45 minutes. I take my blood sugars spradically and have found them to be extremely better, i.e. 110 vs 121 to 129 without the exercise in the water. It seems to work much better then walking. I would like you TuDiabetes members to try it and let me know your results. Also, it it very relaxing. Any questions - let me know.

A Glass Of Wine

Does a glass of wine lower or higher your glucose readings 8 to 10 hours later? I was told by my
Dr. That a glass of wine is great for the HDL and he is an endocronologist.
