Up indil recently my averages were in the low to mid 5s It has averaged below 6.50 for the last 16 years This mainly because of all the insulin reactions I did know a guy who had averages in the mid 4s He was a frantic and look like a scarecrow That is how tight his control was I do not think I could do that
Looking for information about the medal If you have any please let me know I figure I should get one after all these years

Doris, that's great about your A1c. Any drop is worth talking about. I think Bon Aqua is near Nashvillle.

8.2 at least its an improvement even with the snow and not being as active as before.
I know I keep changing my photo but I will leave this one so not to confuse you anymore I am sorry.
I`ve been having good readings for the past 2 days till I went to see the nurse and she told me to take less in the morning so this morning I woke up 5.4 took 4 units of insulin and then jumped up to 16 and then it got higher but now its settled so not gonna take the nurses advice on that one.

8.2 - oops! do you have a plan to bring it down? do you keep a log? I have a big pad of paper, and I write everything down that may affect my bg. right now I'm going to take a walk, #bgnow 141 and I am TOTALLY frustrated with this quilt I'm working on! oh well, I got baby back ribs in a slow oven with a spicy dry rub - I'm gonna let them cook for 3 hours.

ladybug man has been vacuuming about every 20 minutes it seems - he's had a little frustration with his job today - I'm keeping outta the way down here in the rec room (my sewing and computer area)

if your girls are watching American Idol, the one named Crystal is type 1 - she's really really good - she was in the hospital w/ her d acting up somehow, but last night she stole the show!

I am unable to use the pump so it is not an option I have been laid off from my job for 18 months and for reasons that I can not go into can not explore any new medical technology
To be honest with you I am surprised that I am still around Because of a loophole I was not entitled to most funding and manage to dig up supplies and medical aid Yesterday at the doctor there were two pieces of good news 6.0 average and no signs of any kidney damage after almost 50 years The doctor was shocked May you have the same news

hi doris..i just discovered today that i can CHANGE the basal rate on my pump. how's that for clueless? i lost my mother and i think i just couldnt deal with that, diabetes, grandkids, etc., i've felt overwhelmed. but i am working on getting things in order. my numbers today have been great, 127, 129, 145... but i have cut carbs and been walking 30 minutes. i feel diabetes is a full time job! LOL!! i do pretty good all day but feel like i'm starving at night! hope you are feeling good today and have an enjoyable evening. juliet

hi doris :) that little photo of the babies is precious! i have 2 granddaughters and will have a 3rd (another girl) late april. i have one daughter, so they are all terribly spoiled! i'm o my own little crusade this past month to get my numbers down, finally now in the 4th week i see a little change. it's very difficult, i was a pastry chef for 30 years, go figure! i have the paradigm pump but it's a pain at times. hope you are having a good day and take care!

Hi Doris,

Thanks for your reply. I certainly can relate- it could be worse. God love your daughter for having 3 kids, and D- I think the D part is easier!! I have let my son know of some Teen D sites and hope we would check them out, so he can vent and also see he really is not alone. I know in his world he feels very alone. Lately it has just gotten the best of both of us. He went on lantus Monday, and will use his pump to cover meals and corrections... So I hope this change will bring back his happiness, or atleast decrease his anger and frustation, as well as get his numbers back down. So thank you again for being here.....
