"I just started on an SSRI. I've been on it about two weeks, and my BG is all over the board. I'm not sure of the cause, I think my stress level is super high and I'm not used to high BG from stress. I see my doc in a couple days, so…"

SSRI (antidepressant) and blood sugars

I started on a very low dose of an SSRI (antidepressant) yesterday and noticed a bit of a drop in my blood sugars. This could be coincidence or time of the month, but as fear of lows is my problem I am now nervous and didn't take my SSRI this morning.Is anyone else on them and did you get a drop in blood sugar? It does say it is one of the rare side effects (1 to 10 in 10,000 people) and also that you may need to adjust insulin doses. I'm having enough trouble coping at the moment (hence the…See More

"Thanks Abby, I wasn;t told this. The pump is usually in my back pock so maybe that is the problem. Seems a bit of a nuisance."

Avastin - Eye clinic appointment

Posted on June 13, 2011 at 6:53am 2 Comments

So I went to eye clinic today. The consultant is really nice and explains everything thoroughly but today I was informed he wants to stick a needle IN MY EYE!!! To give me Avastin for fluid in the retina. I've had extensive laser and he can't do any more of that because the leak is too near the centre of my vision.

Has anyone had this done? Apparently Avastin isn't licensed but they still use it here in the UK, as the licensed version is too expensive for the NHS to buy!!

But he also… Continue

Reading Bernstein

Posted on February 10, 2011 at 8:21am 12 Comments

After posting my plea for help on here, I have had loads of responses. Thanks everyone. One of which was to try the Bernstein solution.  So I have the book from the library and am reading through it.

I have to say it does make sense, because one of the major problems I have is taking boluses of any size.  I just imagine the insulin going in to me as a big puddle, and then…

Dexcom teething troubles

Posted on December 23, 2009 at 12:57am 3 Comments

Phew what a frustrating evening I had yesterday!



So I inserted the sensor for the Dex at about 4.20pm and left it for the 2 hours specified in the manual. It appeared to be doing what it was supposed to and hopefully the end of the 2 hour warm-up period would coincide with my pre-dinner bg testing so I could calibrate the Dex. Hmmm, good plan but Dexter (as I have now called him - yes he is a man!) had other ideas.



Two hours had passed and dinner was ready. It was 6.45pm… Continue
