Oh yeah one more thing I've found if I eat anything like pepper or sausage (hot or mild) it will upset ur diagestion and make u really hurt with heartburn or anthing like that u might wanna do what I done and take any spicey food out of ur diet. I done the samething with chilli and I sooooo love it
I saw what u posted in the gasteroparis group. I tend to have all those symptoms + it takes me about 4 hours to digest any meal. My bowels don't act everyday either. I wind up taking stool sofinfer to get them to work everyday but it does get sooooo bad that I have to take a laxitive to get them to work. Life huh???
now please remember that the Nexium is the only brand name I take and I take it 2x a day the other 2 are Metoclopam 4x a day each pil b/f i eat and Dicyclomine 4x a day each one b/f I eat. I know that I should be taking some more but I just don't eat so's I don't haffa.
I'm sorry but yesterday was a day of drs for me. I take LOADS of meds for it. Wait I'll go find the names of them (and really they still don't work I've gotten to where theres only a few things I will eat & sometimes that don't work either)
WOW! I just read about when u were born. For some reason I had u in ur 30's LOL! OK I was soooooo far off. I want to thank you for all u've done to make it abit easier for the diabetics of the 70's. U ROCK!!!
Tsk....guess I shouldn't complain!! Of our 2 children, our eldest is a "girl"....27! She's the mom of our youngest grandson...20 months old. Our son is 2 years younger than our daughter, and is the dad to a 4, and a 2 year old. As well, I have been spoiled in that they all live in the same community...in fact they all live in our house at the moment as they had shared the mortgage of one large house, bought jointly last Summer, which went to a fire in January and lost everything. Thankfully they had insurance! linda
Morning Shoshana...luv the name :) Thank you for adding me to your circle of friends! Having been dx in 1936, has allowed you to see a bucket full of changes in diabetes management over the years! Bet YOU could tell us a few stories!!! I have 2 children and 3 grandchildren (all boys...would be nice to see a little girl in the configuration).
I was dx in 2006 with type 2....but I'm pretty sure I had it long before.
Many hugs....linda in canada.
Thanks for the welcome, Shoshana. Suddenly I don't feel as though I'm wandering alone in the wildnerness. I was diagnosed with Type II last June. I inject 30 units from a trusty Lantus Solostar pen between 10 and 10:30pm. I went into a diabetic coma last year and very lucky to be alive. Imagine waking up in hospital after four days and being told you're diabetic. I have been walking and trying to eat right but can't seem to lose weight. Also, back in December, my Alc was 7. Lately though my blood sugar is constantly high. I don't want to keep doing more and more medicine. Hopefully there are others of like mind on this forum with suggestions to help me. Thanks again, Shoshana for the welcome.
