Pretty great day until tonight, which is my own fault becuase I had sushi and tempura tonight and knew I would probably be high, and I think I also messed up by reducing the bolus by 50%. Hopefully I don't crash in the middle of the night AND tomorrow will be better because I only have sushi about once a month, if that.

Do you love pasta but avoid it due to its ridiculously high carbohydrate content? Perhaps you’re trying to lose/maintain your current weight but know most pasta contains too many calories to fit into your meal plan? If that sounds like you – do not fear! There exists an alternative to traditional… Continue

I saw my Educator today.She weighed me and I figured I have lost 8lbs since doing my housekeeping job.The job is physically demanding and I haven't really increased the amount of carbs I have been eating.I got some Boost to drink while at work.I should have about 45g each meal and 20g at bedtime in order to build myself back up again.My periods have also stopped but I thought it was mainly from my hormones changing because I was working.I see her again in December,hopefully by then I will have… Continue

Hello! I just joined tudiabetes and I'm very impressed with what I've found so far.
I'm very new to thinking about diabetes for myself. My mother was a Type 2 diabetic who lived with it for more than 20 years before her death at the age of 83. It may be that my father was a Type 2, as well, though he died many years ago from heart disease and I've never heard anyone mention the possibility of diabetes-related issues in his health care.
My own partner is a Type 2 diabetic.… Continue

At 148g of carbs today (though 12g of those were correcting a low) was actually a pretty high-carb day compared to what I've been eating like. But my blood sugars were so awesome!! One unexplained high that came down quickly and one easily explained low, I'll take it! I wish every day was like today! Still using higher insulin doses but I don't care as long as my blood sugars are good like this.

This is an uncomfortable subject for me. It's an embarrassing subject for me. I'm not sharing my story for attention. I'm sharing my story because there were so many signs I had and no one knew about what I was doing, not even my husband or my mother or my best friend. They didn't know there was a name for what I was doing. All they knew was I wasn't taking care of myself. They didn't know I was ultimately making myself sick to lose weight. They thought I was just in denial and probably thought… Continue

Seems like eating fish is a great deal for keeping you healhty... my creatinine levels were a little over the upper limit 1.23, and after a week of changing my diet (from eating only meat to eating fish too) they are back to normal 1.04 ... awesome!

I have only had my pump for going into the third week now and have been trying to get the basal rate set right. Last week I decided to do test for a 24 hour period. Numbers stayed real good until the end and then they started dropping to low. Yesterday I started again and about 9 hours into the test the numbers started dropping to low again. Low to me is below 70. It's always the late afternoon early evening hours I start dropping. Am I being to obsessive about this? I have made some more minor… Continue

November is Diabetes Month and today Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation kicks off something new - the first annual type 1 day. Makes sense. After all, it is 11-1-11! You can find out more about JDRF and T1Day here. There's tons of info, videos, etc.
We're marking Diabetes Month with a pretty cool project - a family storybook. Wish I could say it was my idea, but Becca Bernstein thought of it. She's the social media marketing manager for Picaboo, a digital photo company. They're… Continue

Wow, I have been reading so many other blogs today. It is just so good to hear others opinions on this stuff and the general fellowship.
In other news, I go home this Friday. Which not only includes another exciting interaction between my diabetes and airport security, but also reminds me of why I hate being tall. Airplanes were not made for me. I am sick of cramming myself into a plastic and aluminum basket so uncomfortable that I can't fall asleep not even for the transatlantic… Continue

Well, I've tested almost every hour today ... I think since changing the insulin my blood sugars are much more like I would expect them to be. I don't think I have seen multiple 4s and 5s in a row in a long time! I think I am going to try and do some basal testing on Friday (maybe skip breakfast) and see if I can nail some of that down.
6:58 - 4.4 (79)
8:29 - 6.8 (122) - Breakfast (15g), correction
10:05 - 13.1 (236) - New site, new insulin, correction

The other day as I was responding to a writing prompt that asked what seven things would I put in a time capsule that would be opened in 100 years. As a person with diabetes is it surprising that this chronic disease influenced my list? A glucose meter was one of the seven things I put on my list.
Here's what I wrote:
Health is another big concern for people today. The population in the…

So, today I've tested almost every hour:
7:00 - 4.4 (79)
8:30 - 6.8 (122) - Small correction
9:00 - Breakfast (15g)
10:00 - 13.1 (236)
11:00 - 9.4 (169) - Correction
12:00 - 7.4 (133) - Lunch
Yesterday afternoon I switched over to contact-detach sets. So far they aren't having any impact. Today after breakfast I changed to a completely new batch of insulin. I get pen cartridges and I use them up in about a month or five weeks, and it occurred to me… Continue

Haven't updated in a little while, but I thought it was worth a blog. Pregnancy is going surprisingly well. I was told awhile ago (while I was pre-planning) that I would absolutely have to use an insulin pump during my high-risk pregnancy. Unfortunately, there is a huge endocrinologist shortage where I'm from. Though I made my appointment at only 7 weeks pregnant, I was informed within that week that I would not be able to see an endocrinologist until the same week I am due.… Continue
