Insulin and my Numbers as they are now

Posted on September 19, 2010 at 11:38am 0 Comments

When I was put on insulin - I didn't know what to do. I knew that I had to take X amount of insulin for Y reasons - but I never had any classes on it because it was felt that it wasn't necessary and my endo still doesn't think I need to go to triadic for a info session on insulin (he says that I am doing very well on my own without their interference). Well I agree in genera since my lace run in with that program didn't go over well, but still finding Canadian info on insulin treatment…

Quick Quaker Oatmeal - Carb Overload :-(

Posted on August 15, 2010 at 11:00am 0 Comments

Alright, it takes a lot to make me do a double take when it comes to food but today was the day for that.


Hubby was going to make us French Toast for breakfast, but because I woke up with a higher then normal numbers (mmol 10.8 [194.4]) we chose to have oatmeal because well its better for me or that was the theory at any rate.


Well he makes it up as he always dun, nice and thick and stick to the ribs goodness - I measure out what I…

Glucose Control, ups and downs and all around

Posted on March 31, 2010 at 12:18pm 1 Comment

Well, I do admit that since I was first told that I was diabetic that I've not taken as good a care of myself as I should have, but I also didn't at the time think that I had to worry to much what I was doing wasn't impacting my levels that bad and my readings where just fine (a little high from time to time, but nothing out ragious - might hit mmol 18 from time to time, but on average was mmol 11).


Then came the emergency operation and my body crash, I went into hospital…

We Welcome you to Insulin Dependent Type 2. My name is Gary and I'm one of the group administrators.

The purpose of our group is to share experiences and to support each other as we take on the task of treating our diabetes with insulin. Using insulin as a type 2 can be very similar to a type one diabetic but it can also be very different.

Please don't be shy, this group works best when we participate. If you have questions please feel free to ask them. Or if you have any wisdom you would like to share please don't hesitate.

Thanks again for joining and I look forward to seeing you in our group.

Stemwinder (Gary)

"Stuff"!! How's the weather at your end...hot and muggy here...was going to weed after the brief rain shower we had here yesterday....but the air was very thick....and my back still recuperating from having washed the kitchen floor 3x over on all fours (the old fashion way) the day before, when our middle grandson Riley (2) decided to spit out his juice all over the place. I would have been arrested for what I toyed doing to him! The room that our daughter was in before moving into her own place is now taken up as a storage room for Timothy and Steph (son and d-i-l). (Our son and daughter and theirs were here since mid January since the house they shared burned to the ground. No one was hurt, except for 3 pets that perished. Our daughter has moved into a new apartment, and our son has purchased a house and they are moving out of our place mid July!) The storage unit they have rented is all full!!! They're moving into their own house starting the 19th of this month! The repeat empty nest syndrome lol. It sure will feel odd to have the whole house to ourselves again! Steph (d-i-l) has a bad ear/sinus infection. She went to a walk in clinic yesterday, and was put on meds, including ear drops. Early evening, her ear was bleeding, which is not uncommon with ear infections...but I nevertheless offered to take her to ER, knowing that we'd be there for at least 6 hours...no no no...she didn't want to go. Midnight, as I'm coming out of the washroom to go to bed, she and Timothy are at the kitchen table...seems that now she feels she should take me up on that earlier offer. I said to her, "you realize that we'll be there all night 'till mid morning anyway!"
She had gone to the internet, and of course got frightened by the comments and suggested diagnoses of her bleeding ear! (sigh....who listens to me!!) So I said..."call telehealth" (a telephone access here, that helps to give you a heads up about your symptoms). They basically paraphrased my comment to her..."you have been seen, you DO have an ear infection which may bleed, you are on medication for it, you do NOT have cancer nor have you suffered trauma to the head. Call your doctor in the morning if it is still bleeding" Who listens to me!!! So this morning, she called her doctor who will see her at....3pm, and the appointment was later changed to 7pm! Guess the doc doesn't share her concern!!
So...life goes on in the Miller household! Sounds SO much like a soap that I should ask you to stay tuned tomorrow...same time same station! How's life at YOUR end??
hugs and best wishes....linda
