You give me hope Marilyn. It's not an easy thing to do but you are doing it.
It's T day here. Need to remember to take that darn cap off before injecting.
Also time to clean out the fridge. There are a few shades of grey in there.

Managing to stay off the sugar for the majority of the time have had a couple of slip ups drank fruit juice and had a chocolate bar
and also once in the last two moths I had two slices cake,vegan raspberry and chocolate cake from Starbucks,it's delicious.
I kinda think it's ok to allow it once every three months.My blood sugar is averaging 180mg or 10 mmol/L.So I still have to get it down.

Hello one and all. Hope you are all tracking well.
Trulicity makes me so very tired and often thirsty. It is hard to keep the water up to stay on top of it. A little while back I had a blood test done and they just got enough blood to do the one test. Tomorrow I am getting my quarterly BAC1 levels checked and a few other yearly ones that my gp wants done. I will need to drink heaps from now to make sure there is enough blood to get.

Good news is that since I wrote about it here I have successfully injected myself with the Trulicity each time.

How are you all going?

I got my blood sugars down again after the Christmas blip.Having a diabetic review done next week,where they will do blood test to check my AHC1's
hopefully it will be an improvement of the 14.7 of last time and my cholesterol was high too.Let's see what the result s are when they come back.
My readings last two days were between 180 and 144,it varies it can go up to 270,but mostly keeping it down.
It is much better than before November last year when I was constantly in the 480 and my eye sight was at risk with diabetic macular.I urge you all that have type 2 diabetes to gain control of your blood sugars to avoid losing your sight and other complication.I have gained control of my eating habits and sugar addictions so that is good progress.

I am pleased that you were able to get past your Christmas blip Marilyn . It is not an easy thing to do. Hmm.. losing eyesight would be a dreadful thing. How did you get control of your eating habits and sugar addiction?

Possum,once I understood that I was addicted to sugar,and also when I understood the damage that the sugar was doing to my eyes,I stopped eating sugary treats every day,I focused on my blood sugar levels and readings and getting them down lowers and losing weight.I am not saying it is easy though but it can be done and knowing my eye sight was in danger motivated me.I understand my sugar addiction now and how to break the vicious cycle of eating it and wanting more and more and more...I guess I took a long time to learn my lesson.generally now most days I don't eat anything much with added sugar,I allow it only once in a long while.And no more fruit juices.

I went to see my GP to check in with my blood tests. Mostly everything was good. My iron levels are low but not not low enough to have an iron infusion. My average BAC1 levels are above 8.2 so I was given the next three months to make a concerted effort to get it lower or go on insulin.

My stress levels are already through the roof at the moment. Insurance issues and a house inspection. I just want the whole world to go away.

Yesterday I went grocery shopping. I didnt buy any jelly beans or candy. No biscuits. All of the Christmas cake is gone. I went through three Christmas cakes over three months. My house contains no sugary foods. Yay. I do hope that by not eating that stuff that my blood sugar levels drops and that I can avoid the insulin.

Well done Possum,if you aren't eating sugar products your blood sugars will come down most certainly,that's what I did and I halved my sugar levels.
You are better not to go on insulin,the insulin makes you ravenous and you will want to eat everything in sight all day long.When I went on insulin I gained 42 pounds.
My sugar levels weren't brought down by insulin cos I was craving foods and eating them the blood sugar levels stayed sky high.It was the worse thing I coud do to go on insulin.
