"Kathyann, it's most likely the fat. Tempura, as you know, is deep-fried, and therefore very fatty. You might also have underdosed for it. One tip, when eating fatty foods, is to use a square wave bolus if you're on a pump, or a small extra…"

"I actually did pretty well until I went out for Tempura. My blood sugar rose and rose. Topped out at 309 nine hours after the tempura. I didn't even eat after 3 pm that day because I kept waiting for my bs to go down. Round 1am it dropped to…"

I don't know about everyone esle but I did not do too well these holidays with eating. I know some drug addicts and it is hard for them to resist their drug of choice. Well it is very difficult for me to resist some foods. I guess I am saying food is my drug.

7 years ago I was disabled and in a wheel chair. Lately I have symptons again like I did 7 years ago. I went to the Dr and he identified what I had in one visit and an MRI and a spinal tap. I just wish that the Dr 7 years ago would have seen the spot on my brain so I could have been on meds then and not in a wheel chair. I missed alot with my three kids and work. I am glad now I know what it is. I also know now not to lay around in pain, it hurts worse. I need to walk around and stretch those… Continue

Frustrated with dieting

Posted on January 26, 2009 at 5:57pm 1 Comment

It seems like when I try to do realy good at eating right my blood sugars are low alot. I don't like the feeling of being low.. If I am high I can't do anything becasue my heart is racing and I feel like my brain is on ice and my eyes feel wierd and my body is tired. Why is it so hard to keep it leveled. And this makes it all the more difficult to loose weight and keep it off. I am going to see an endo. tomorrow. I hope he is not too hard on me.
