"I inject a lot before washing and I have never gone low during the meal. Perhaps you guys are schmoozing too much between courses... or I am eating to much challah...! Do you check on Shabbos? Are you waking up with normal numbers?"

Shalom Shea, hope all is well!

Our Annual Campaign is coming!

Would you consider helping by writing a short comment/testimonial about your
experiences at TuD? The main message for the campaign this year is that no
one with diabetes should ever feel alone. Messages from our community give
people a real-life, personal sense of how valuable TuDiabetes is to each of
us, how it's changed our lives, etc.

If you can, please include a photo of you doing something diabetic (if that
makes sense LOL). Please post to this group
(http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/why-i-participate-in-this-community), or
message to me from my page.

Thanks my friends!

Pssst.... pass it on!

Hope all's well Shea.

I just wanted to stop by to see if you've done your Big Blue Test Today. Dont' forget that every time you log a Big Blue Test $5 is donated to diabetes charities that are providing life-saving supplies and services.

If you haven't yet, go log a Big Blue Test at http://www.bigbluetest.org/. If you have, do another!

Shalom shea- How are you doing ? Are you back home in Israel ? We haven't heard from you for a while. Like jrtpup says have you seen an endo yet to check on your diabetes ? Has there been any change in your health in general ? Please let us know we do care.

Shea,

Haven't heard from you in a while - are you back home? Have you seen an endo yet?

Hope all's well.

I was going to ask which Humulin but I see it's Humulin N. I was put on NPH at diagnosis (don't remember if it was Humulin N or Novolin N) but I switched to Lantus within the week, so I don't have much experience with NPH.
What I do know about NPH is that it kicks in slowly (hours) has a strong burst of action, and the peters out. So I didn't like it as an overnight insulin. People who take it in the morning tend to be able to eat a lunch with the blood sugar reduction it causes at that time. I think it's a little strange that your blood sugars aren't coming down much but maybe you just haven't hit the right dose yet.

Just wondering- are you active? Do you bike, run, juggle, swim, anything like that? If you do, now might be a good time to see if that will lower your blood sugar. Has anybody given you ideas about what to do if you have a low blood sugar?
