I am part of the Welcome Committee and was just checking in on you to make sure you are aware of all that TuDiabetes has to offer. We would love to hear from you so here is a helpful link where you can read about all the things you can do in the community.
Hello Paul! I noticed in an earlier discussion that you have Hashimoto's. Can I ask which medicine you take for it and did you notice any effects on your blood sugar when you started?
I tested positive of antibodies that will lead to Hashimoto's, but my TSH was still normal (3.5) in March. I'm guessing when I get my blood work in September, then I will be officially "diagnosed". Any advice welcome :)
Thanks. I am mostly a lurker and usually do not have much to add to a discussion. Here is a little background. I was diagnosed in 1958 about 6 weeks before my 11th birthday. At the time I took a mixture of 10 units of regular (U-40) and 20 units of NPH (U-80) in a glass syringe with both U-80 and U-40 markings, tested urine sugars using clinitest tablets and used exchange lists to figure a Protein=100g Fat=100g Carbohydrate=200g diet. Things have changed I now use an insulin pump with approximately 40-45 units Insulin Aspart (NovoLog), test blood glucose 8-10 times daily and eat approximately 200g to 250g of carbohydrate.
