I try to test the children when I can just to keep an eye on things. They run at around 6.2 6.5, I was wondering if this is normal for non-D children, should they be lower. These reading were taken…Continue

Losing Legs

How do PWD lose their legs, how bad does it need to be. Could you just lose a leg by having a cut on it that doesn't heal. Could you lose one by having decent control but being D a long time. Does it…Continue

I've been on these babies for about two weeks now, had the flu vaccine last week so I wouldn't count that for an idea of how the bg is going. This week however I've noticed a lot of lows, could it be…Continue

I'm hoping to hit 6% hbA in the next month. I have been trying pretty hard, compared to what I used to do. What do I need to do to get a hbA of 5 or 6%. I know its a big question but fire away.…Continue

Hello again, still type 1

Posted on September 4, 2012 at 2:15pm 10 Comments

I was on this wonderful site three years ago. I drifted away from it, don't really know why, but anyway still here and alive and well. I see a lot of new faces on here and would be delighted to get talking to you all. I would absolutely love to get in touch with some to the old members. My old profile is still here, its Josephine O'Donnell, Ireland. ( PAGE 544 ). I look forward to chatting to you, especially my wee Robyn. Nothing much going on since. I have tried many times to lower the HbA,…

Hunger and the low carb diet

Posted on September 3, 2012 at 6:58am 8 Comments

Hello all, just sitting here in Ireland on a cold, windy, wet day. All I can think about is toast and soup. I would dearly love to follow a low carb diet, but find it near impossible at times. It is slightly easier in the Summertime. Any advice on how to combat the hunger pangs. At the moment I eat about 120g of carbs per day. I try to avoid protein because I have early kidney damage. Any suggestions would be welcome.

HbA and kidney problems

Posted on September 1, 2012 at 4:22pm 6 Comments

I've been told by my doctor that I have mild kidney disease. I have requested my medical records, still waiting for them eight months later. I will discuss how bad the situation is at my next appointment. I have been trying to lower my hba these last few months. It is 8% at the moment, I would like to get it to 6% soon. My question is could my kidney problems have an effect on my hba results. I also have a very low body temperature and low iron levels. I would mention it to my diabetic team…

Hi there!! thank you very much for the comment & friendship!

Awesome!! I'm glad to hear you're ready to rock and roll! Plus, of course, the egomaniacal satisfaction of being correct!! I think that lot of people trudge around in shoes they've had for years,try to get going and are discouraged by the excruciating consequences.

Admittedly, I probably buy more shoes than I need but whatever! I was gonna get another pair but they were out of my size at 2 stores. There's a third. This AM, I was like "hmmm, I should call over there, maybe they've got the elusive Brooks PureCadence in an 11 1/2...in Black..." but I said "you geek just run" and ran and had the fastest 10K I'd ever run. At my age! LOL.

Josephine...

Our Annual Campaign is coming!

Would you consider helping by writing a short comment/testimonial about your
experiences at TuD? The main message for the campaign this year is that no
one with diabetes should ever feel alone. Messages from our community give
people a real-life, personal sense of how valuable TuDiabetes is to each of
us, how it's changed our lives, etc.

If you can, please include a photo of you doing something diabetic (if that
makes sense LOL). Please post to this group
(http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/why-i-participate-in-this-community), or
message to me from my page.

Thanks my friends!

Hello Josephine, thanks for the friendship!! I'm sorry to hear about your kidney disease. It is good that it is mild at this time. I take blood pressure medication to help prevent kidney problems.
