Gluten Free

Posted on August 6, 2014 at 9:00am 2 Comments

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".

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…

Wildcard Day: "Write a short story personifying a diabetes tool you use on a daily basis. A meter, syringe, pump, pill, etc. Give it a personality and a name and let it speak through you. What would it be happy about, upset about, mad about? "

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.

Hi Trudy. I hope that you had a nice Labor Day weekend. I have been sick for a while but am now taking some medication that is helping with my gall bladder and my pain. I went to the endocrinologist today and found out that a ton of blood tests that they took all were normal and that my A1C went down a whole point in one month. Once I got the gall bladder problems under control I have been offered to try the pump. I am looking forward to that. After a rocky start with the insulin mix everything is going fine with the new endocrinologist at the VA. They are taking one more blood test for Celiac disease. Can you tell me what your symptoms before you were diagnosed. I know fatigue and muscle pain was mentioned.
How are the puppies doing. I hope the health problems have calmed down since the last time we talked. Has it cooled off for you yet. Here it is hot and holding. Take care. Thanks for coming to my page. Ellen

Hi Trudy, I finally was delivered one Novolog vial and some syringes. I got your package and will use the tips on the pens that I have left. Thank goodness I have a reserve. I am so stressed out by this new health care. I didn't think anyone could be that disorganized or make that many serious mistakes. I am still here though and I am thankful for that. It is all that matters.
I am heading down to the pool for some R & R. It was cloudy but now the sky has cleared up and the weather is perfect for swimming. I feel like fall is in the air a little because our weather cooled off.
My garden is really going nuts. Some tomatoes were ripe, a whole bowl of cherries. It was delicious. My parsley grew back after someone chowed down on it. I went out and found just stems. Chris spent this morning cutting the grass and weeding and watering.
How is your weekend going? I hope that everyone at your house is doing well. Pet the puppies. Ellen

Hey Trudy. I watched part of the Lincoln Center concert today and it was fabulous. Will do the rest tomorrow. I had forgotten how much I liked Dar Williams....
