Zoe replied to Zoe's discussion 'Nausea'
"By the way, my unexpected low of 50 2 hours after the bagel just speaks to the discussion of Bernstein on another thread: The law of small numbers says high carb intake = high dose = high chance of error. For me the 7.20 units I bolused for the…"

Zoe replied to Sarah's discussion 'Controlled vs. Uncontrolled'
"I just checked your A1C; unless it's outdated, I'm not sure I'd call 6.1 "uncontrolled." Sometimes it's more about how we feel and our degree of acceptance than the actual numbers. Then there's the old "luck…"

Zoe replied to David (dns)'s discussion 'Not A Big, Earth-shaking Question, But I'm Curious What Others Do'
"There often isn't much choice in my small town, though I do seem to have purchased a couple different brands over time. They all seem to work fine and I haven't had any experience with drying out, so I don't give thought to brands. I…"

Zoe replied to Sarah's discussion 'Controlled vs. Uncontrolled'
"Perhaps it comes from your own reports, Sarah, which at least what I have read express frustration with both MDI and pump and the feeling that you haven't been able to establish satisfactory dosing regimens on either one."

"Thanks, my friend. Yes, as much as I love bagels it sure wasn't worth feeling like that!"

Terry replied to Zoe's discussion 'Nausea'
"No need for embarrassment. We're not machines and sometimes we make choices that are less than optimal BG-wise but satisfy other needs. I completely understand. Besides, it's what you do 80% of the time that matters. Over the last few…"

Zoe replied to Muragaki's discussion 'End of Life decisions -- please share if you've contemplated the topic'
"I agree, Muragaki. Not to take on a "my situation is worse than your situation" stance, but it is different when you have a partner. It's funny but someone started a group for Type 1's living alone and I really felt I had little…"

Zoe replied to Zoe's discussion 'Nausea'
"I know, Tim, I thought perhaps I was getting a bug, though I never get sick. But it was so marked, the way it came on when I was down to 50 and then when I soared up to 258 and went away in between and when I returned to normal. I've never had…"

Tim replied to Zoe's discussion 'Nausea'
"Not everything is related to bg. I might be extraordinarily sensitive to spring allergies but at the height of them, especially if I've been outside doing stuff much of the day, it gets to the point of nausea. Oh, I so much appreciate the rain!…"

Spock replied to Zoe's discussion 'Nausea'
"The rapidity is probably the culprit, but remember that nausea is often associated with lows and highs. When I have a really devastating low, I usually vomit. If my BG is very high, my stomach always feels bad."

Zoe replied to Zoe's discussion 'Nausea'
"I'm embarrassed to admit that my blood sugar before the bagel was 156. I shouldn't have eaten such a high carb lunch when I was already high, but I'd planned to order a bagel at the cafe, and didn't want to switch to a salad…"
Terry replied to Zoe's discussion 'Nausea'
"I've never felt nausea from rapid rise or fall but I have felt inappropriately tired and drowsy. What was your BG before the post-bagel 50? While you measured the 258 two hours after the 50, you could have actually risen from 50 to 258 in a…"

Hi ,

You may have noticed TuD hanging around the site. It's his 6th birthday this month, and his big international family of people with diabetes is growing. Our 6th birthday fundraising campaign is on! Every dollar you donate allows TuDiabetes to reach 6 people touched by diabetes, giving them the opportunity to not be alone!

Please consider making a donation, as well as asking your friends and family to give what they can. TuD's birthday party will keep getting more guests as we raise more donations (see top of the home page). Let's help keep our family thriving and growing! Please share this message. Thanks!

Zoe, My comment was not directed at you; if I didn't make that clear, please let me say it now and remove all doubt. I do have to say, however, that I think you are wasting your energy trying to reason with someone who won't be reasoned with, and who simply will not hear what you say. You're attempting to move an immovable object.
