Doctor's Appointment

Posted on January 27, 2014 at 7:42am 3 Comments

I recently saw my D doctor.I am taking Levothyroxine for hypothyrodism.He was going to increase it until I told him I was taking it with all my other meds.I started taking it separately 3 days ago and started noticing high blood sugars where I was always within my target range before.Should I just readjust my insulin levels or do 1 hormone pill every other day?I think I may be getting too much tsh, as I think that is the reason for my high blood sugars

Just Returned Home From Vacation

Posted on September 16, 2013 at 6:03am 3 Comments

We just got home from my motherinlaws houseboat.Is is located in Buckhorn Ontario just past Toronto.It is very hilly and your ears pop like crazy.I was feeling nauseous and had a full feeling but this was after vacation on the way home.When the feeling persisted for another day I started thinking it was gastroparesis.Can driving in the hills and valleys upset your stomach?I was thinking of purchasing some ginger root capsules to help with this.

Hot Weather Woes

Posted on May 22, 2013 at 6:40am 0 Comments

I am having troubles right now with too many lows.I have reduced my TTD and I get very discouraged easily.I hate how a BS reading of more than 11mmol makes me feel.I need some words of encouragement as I try to find the right settings.If I at least stop the lows I can correct them and go from there.I have Pumping Insulin by John Walsh where it tells you how much to reduce your TTD but my pump totals aren't on the chart as I am on a small amount of insulin.

Peanut Butter with Meals

Posted on March 27, 2013 at 7:13am 3 Comments

I have been eating a tablespoon of crunchy peanut butter with my meals and I have been having exceptionally good readings,especially breakfast.I never realized peanut butter could be so helpful on controlling my blood sugars.I don't have a weight problem so the few grams of fat I get aren't a problem.I downloaded my blood sugars and I had 65% in range of my target.

Hi, Dee. Thanks for the friend invite! As for your question about the Custom Composer you are definitely asking the wrong person. I don't use the EzManager at all (I intended to and decided it wasn't worth the trouble) and I hate all alarms - mine or others! I do understanding how frustrating it is when technology won't cooperate in helping you achieve your goals so I hope you figure it out or get input from someone who can help!

Hello! Thank you for having me as a friend Dee!
Windsor....we're practically neighbours, but still it feels like you're right here! That's one of the appealing factors of tu.diabetes. I'm in Kitchener-Waterloo. I'm a wife of 33 years (hubby is also diabetic), mom to two grown children (one 28, the other 26), a grandma to 3 lovable little boys (and a 4th little one due late June!!), a teacher, and before that an illustrator (still do some) and graphic designer. I speak French fluently, I read, history fascinates me, I paint, sing, walk, garden, ski, ride my bike....did I mention "read"? I love having friends over, I bake/cook, am an eclectic music lover, an animal lover...the ocean...ah the speaks to me! Oh...and I have diabetes (and a few other things).
Nice to have you as a friend!!! Tell me a bit about yourself and keep in touch, ok?

Best Wishes NOW....and for the rest of the year!
Have a GREAT "ME" DAY :)
