Hope you don't mind the shortened use of your name. I'm too lazy to type the whole designation! Remember my sound problem? Well, my personal care worker and I fiddled around with it and got it to work by just finding my old cables from before I used it as a TV in rehab. We plugged one end in (2 plugs) and then experimented with the back of the CPU and, viola!, sound!!! Thanks for your input.
hi AR, say, in your comment to the person trying to figure out the %age to lower basal for exercise, you posted a picture of a chart. I can't read the picture, do you have a link or could you add it as a photo to your page? thanks, I am interested in reading it.
Hi Acidrock, how are your feet? do you have to do anything special since you run? I went to a foot doctor and he checked my feet for neuropathy with some string of some sort, and a funny tuning fork thing, and all was well, but wondering if you do that too?
So, I'll be your first test case type 2 runner man... I used to run marathons in the 1990s, was in great shape, but gained a bit of weight and now thanks to diabetes type 2, I've lost 50 lbs now, and got the marathon bug again. I've tried a variety of diets for the last three months of my diagnosis and have been able to keep 5.6 for two months, as I test A1C monthly now to keep motivated. Lately, eating small amounts of whatever I want, except any direct sugar and most fruits i avoid. But, I eat bread whole wheat, pasta whole wheat, whole full fat milk, and have post meal readings around 110-120 at 1 hour, and 90-105 at 2 hours for the most part. If I skip my runs for a few days, then I see a few 125s and a couple of experiments with bagels, and sweet rolls got me a 140 and a 153, which was my highest two readings in three months. So, I feel comfortable that I caught the diabetes early before beta cells have completely died, but still don't know enough about the whole diabetes train to know if what I'm doing is OK or not. Doctors seem happy but they are not really connected alot with me, as they seem to busy to care beyond the a1c.....
