I got lucky when it comes to cooking tomorrow..My oldest is taking her dad and me out to eat! One thing here we're going to a place where he gets a free meal for his birthday! Yep that works!!! HA!! Well like I said I'm trying to be low key, I've not really watched myself for the past year and now I'm reading all the posts and blogs about others here with the same deal going on. I WAS doing good but then life kinda made a visit and well my diabetes kinda took a backseat for a while, really DON'T WANT TO GO THERE! Tell your husband "Happy Birthday" tomorrow from the tudiabetes person Doris and you guys make it a real special one!!
Hi Marie - Thanks for reaching out. I spent a little time this afternoon reading through some of the posts regarding LADA and I found them truly enlightening. I was diagnosed in August 2007 while living overseas. At the time I was informed that I was type 2 based on Anti GAD 65 readings that come in positive ... however, upon returning back to the US late this, I quickly located a new endocrinologist, had a full spectrum of blood analysis performed only to learn that I am LADA due to a very negative Anti GAD 65 of -225. After considerable online research, I have quickly learned that I am in a prolonged honeymoon phase. Upon being diagnosed I under went insulin therapy for 3 months to stabilize my system but have since been using oral meds that have not changed to-date with my A1C holding around 6.5. I only use insulin when the desire to crawl out of my small culinary box arises and I want to treat myself to sushi or a nice helping of pasta.
I would would certainly enjoy connecting with your sister. Not far from her, in Wynnewood, I seek additional services from Integrated Diabetes, run by a gentleman named Gary who has been type 1 for nearly 30 years.
I'm now using the Sure-T sets by minimed b/c I had so much scar tissue from the long leedles I had to go with the shorter ones> My bs was way out of control this time last year and the MM rep kept changing my infusion sets til we found one that worked! Long try out there! I think I tried everyone they make! HA!!
I change mine too everyotherday but I really hate it when I hit a bad spot and have to change it again within 24 hours! I changed mine last night running 124 and this morning (I missed up telling you my bs it was 364) with that high! Needless to say already changed it out again now doing better (down to 234) Just give it time it WILL FALL!! Hope you get a good walk out there in the snow flurries bundle up well when you get out to walk and get that birthday card!!
Let me try again here, this computer well................Yep I saw the pics! What a cutie!!! Don't you know that was a Thanksgiving for all times for Joe? I bet if you ask him he will tell you now he know's why there's a holliday then! Say you've got rain over there? Here (right now til Wenesday) we've got sunshine then on Wenesday it's suppost to rain and get even colder.BRRRRRR It's already cold enough for me!
Sorry to hear about your bs but just walk in the house you don't need to get out and catch what I had for 2 weeks! It caused some 540 and such for me! Try and stay well.
Hey Marie...How are you? Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Sure no problem with greeting folks. You all gave me a warm welcome when I arrived so Im just paying it forward as they say....You're one of those folks I was mentioning in my blog like Danny and Joanne and Peter and Lane and Melissa and Robyn and lol the list goes on....so no worries.
Hope this note finds you well and look forward to hearing form you.
Met Christian and he is very nice. Got connected to my pump and it is fantastic. My BGs yesterday morning and this morning were 100 and 120. My usual numbers were 220 to 300 because of dawn phenomenon. Today so far (it's 8.40pm) all have been between 70 and 150. I am delighted. You will love it when you get the combo over there. Everything is done through the meter, the pump stays in your pocket all the time and the meter bluetooths the date to the pump.
I don't have anyone to talk to about diabetes that really UNDERSTANDS. I'm really looking forward to this chance to talk and vent and question and understand. So far I've been reading reading reading reading . . .
