I found out drinking 3 cups of hisbiscus tea a day lowers blood pressure,cholesterol and blood sugar so will be giving it a try.I ordered some it should turn up later this week.I will let you all know if it works it should take a couple of weeks to kick in.

My numbers have been ranging from 80 to 170 depending on the time of day. Is the top number still okay for not being on meds and just monitoring?

It might be stretching it. Might be time to see your doctor about medications if you are unable lower it.

I added Trulicity to Galvumet to control my bsls. It isn't working. It has helped with my appetite but the numbers are still high.

My fasting glucose reading this morning was 157, which, while not great, was the lowest it's been all year, PLUS I've been on a reduced dose of metformin because i have to go pick up my refill. Plus, i just havent really been very hungry? I think im eating around a thousand calories or so.

One thing im eating for meals / snacks is Twin Peaks Protein Puffs. I got them from amazon. (kinda pricey, and they say to use the jug up in a month after opening.) They are slightly smaller than regular cheese balls, but low carb, low fat, high protein, but they are dairy. One serving is one cup is 130 calories, but 1/3 cup or so is usually enough, unless im really hungry. And yummy flavors! The margerita pizza has this great basil overtone - i usually stop when its not prominent anymore.

And so crunchy! Ive become a crunch monster, which i never was before. I dont know what exactly is going on, but its been three days that my eating has decreased, altho ive been crunching on these things for about a month, off and on. Ive just become more conscious about it lately. Also increasing water / herb tea.

P. S. Hi Gus!! Missed you sooooo much!!!

saw my doc today, it's still a month too early for an A1c, but i have dropped 5 lbs and 7 inches~! and my blood pressure readings were great~

i know what you mean about 1000 calories a day, i've been holding the line, and reducing my meds, too... that's what it's all about, right, getting completely off those meds ?? (may we live to see the day).

Gus, you sweetie, you remembered i love blue roses!

Im eating like a piglet today - 1300 cal, i think. Its amazing how it feels like a lot. I really do eat mindlessly. So ive been waiting to start a meal, and very wary of seconds and or sides.

Added Ozempic to my insulin regiment. A1C was a little high at 7.2 but I have been eating horribly lately

@marilyn have you started drinking the tea and are you enjoying it.

My bsls start in the double figures in the mornings. Not happy with myself. I am craving Fanta something I haven't touched for decades.
