Hi everyone I for got to share about the visit I had with my GP doctor on Jan, 5,2009
My sugars are under control every morning before eating or taking any medicines my blood sugar
has been in the 80s and 90s for over 5 weeks or so. I check my blood sugar every morning that is what my doctor says to do.

I on my own check it when I add new foods to see how my blood sugar responds so on an average I check my blood sugar twice a day usually.
My blood sugar usually is in the 90s and low 100s in the day time and evenings. At least when I check them they have been. I get only so many test strips so I cannot check blood sugar as often as I would like.

I also lost 23 pounds since starting eating low carb and watching my calories. 23 pounds since Nov, 20,2008.
So that is my news for now.. Oh Lupus that I have is ok the tests are better not normal but better so I am very glad about that. Oh also my doctor said once I am off the Prednisone I may be able to get off the Metformin I am weaning off the Prednisone but it may take months to get off. Time will tell. I do hope to get off Metformin if I can. I don't like Prednisone it makes me so mean lol and bloated. I will get my A1C test done on Feb, 10,2009

Hope you all are having a good Sunday.
Hugs Angela
