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.
