I hope it works @Calypso2632.

My Geodon was upped so it was making my Actos less effective so now that was upped too. Fasting blood sugar today was 99, down from 105 yesterday.

My recent blood test showed my HbA1c is down from 14.7 to 12,my diabetic nurse says that is really good as I only started getting control of my blood sugar levels at the end of January this year.My cholesterol is down from 7.4 to 6.So that all seems good and my liver is improving every time they test they said.!For HbA1c 12 is still high so I will work on getting it down lower.

My weight fluctuated down another couple of pounds this week. It never stays there, but my previous regular becomes my new high, then my new low becomes my new regular, then rinse and repeat!

I should have anticipated this because my fasting blood sugar was down a good 10 pts this week.

I bought some powdered egg whites this week, gonna see if i cant add some variety to my diet. For a "cheese" omelet, i bought a sampler kit of popcorn toppings, with flavors like bacon and cheddar etc. We will see!

Yes me too except only about 9 days until I see the diabetic nurse for a weigh in and for her to check my blood sugars are on track.I have got to get back on the diet and no sugar rule again.I haven't been measuring my sugars properly either for the last two weeks,so that is not good and I skipped quite a lot of days in my food diary,I deliberately didn't record what I ate because I was overeating and eating forbidden foods.

Dr brought me by right down to 70 in a month with room to move it even further if needed.
Death is a good incentive for me to sit up and take stock of what I was doing wrong.
So it's back on the clean living diet.Sort of.
He would like it better but we compromised.

I really am not awake to the dangers of eating sugary snack,still,after 16 years as a diabetic,I am dicing with death,eating chocolate and stuff I shouldn't. I am so annoyed with myself,why do I need to have the taste of sugar to feel satisfied?Anyways my blood sugars are back in the 450's or 20mmol/L and I am working again to bring them down.I ate 5 bars of chocolate today,so very bad.

Hello,
I am new here and this is my first post. I was diagnosed with Diabetes a few years ago and am on medication. I am learning that denial does not work! I struggle with emotional eating. My A1C has been slowly climbing so I am really trying hard to control my eating so as not to have to up my medication or go on insulin. But I hate it! I hate everything about Diabetes, and I'm struggling. So... any support would be great. Thank you.
