Basal or Bolus?

Started this discussion. Last reply by David (dns) Nov 1. 20 Replies

A Walk in the Park, II

I posted the following blog on November 22, 2010 -- for Thanksgiving Day. Since then I have found other reasons to be thankful -- for one, I have stayed alive long enough to celebrate my 21st Diaversary! I had a real medical scare this last January, which could have ended differently. Our son and daughter and their offspring are thriving, and thankfully, I'm here to appreciate that. And oh yes, I'm thankful that my husband and I will soon celebrate the anniversary of our marriage in the…See More

Gluten Free

If you have Celiac Disease, you have probably already read that the new FDA rule goes into effect today: http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/Cons...ce=govdelivery

I made this comment on another site:

"The AP article in my newspaper says, "The standard will ensure that companies can't label products 'gluten-free' if they are cross-contaminated from other products made in the same manufacturing facility".

Mantras and More (DBlog)

Bad Days, Brain Fog... (DBlog)

Yesterday we opened up about how diabetes can bring us down. Today let’s share what gets us through a hard day. Or more specifically, a hard diabetes day. Is there something positive you tell yourself? Are there mantras that you fall back on to get you through? Is there something specific you do when your mood needs a boost? Maybe we've done that and we can help others do it too? (Thanks to Meri of Our Diabetic Life for suggesting this…

Hi Trudy, Our leaves are not changing yet. It is still hot, so like summer. Once in a while we get a cool day. I like the change in light though. It is very pretty now coming through the window at sunset, just a little different.
I am sorry to hear about your leg. Does it hurt? I hope by the time you read this the swelling is gone. I have had swelling before and it is worrisome. The animals are good. They are very healthy, these two. Zen is constantly checking on me and tickling me with her whiskers. She is so cute. Ammi comes up now and then and when his tail gets near the bed Zen watches it go by, they are so funny together. She goes downstairs in the morning and sits on the back of the chair and hisses if necessary. They are so funny, especially Zen.

Hi Trudy, It is good to hear from you. I am so thrilled with my blood glucose. I have been taking my readings a lot even at night and after eating and they are really in range for the first time since I had all those hospitalizations when they were constantly in the 300 range. They took so many different blood tests and all of them came out well. I have the celiac one in a few days and I don't think that I have it because I don't have diarrhea at all.
I have been sleeping a lot from the morphine and don't eat that much, mostly Glucerna and soft food. I am holding my weight though. I am much better than I was.
I think it makes sense for you to enjoy your food and work around your conditions. I guess that you are all healed up from your fall. How is the poison ivy? I guess that in the colder months it is not a problem. I have not been walking much. I hope you have a lovely autumn season. It has cooled off hear and we are looking forward to the changing leaves.
