"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…"
"I just checked your A1C; unless it's outdated, I'm not sure I'd call 6.1 "uncontrolled."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…"
"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…"
"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."
"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…"
"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…"
"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…"
"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!…"
"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."
"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…"
"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…"
Thanks anyway.I have started a discussion about the play button not working and so far have received no replies.I was composing my own tunes for the reminders which I use all the time.I get so tired of Mary Had A Little Lamb.If you know what I mean?

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.
A couple of days ago I learned that the California State Assembly is considering AB-1893 Sharps waste, which in (if approved) will mandate that: “Sharps sold to the general public in California shall be sold with a sharps waste container Read on! →
If you are new to diabetes advocacy in the traditional sense of the word, you may be thinking, “What the heck is a docket!?” I certainly was the first twenty times I heard it (yes it took that long). For Read on! →
