Well first darn it, I broke my blog. I will be fixing it until my hand is back.
I cannot wait until I get this bandage off my arm. It itches.
Good news, though! No pain! Carpal tunnel pain is gone from both hands.
The metforim is doing great, I think I figured out my dose of insulin. At least I haven't died yet. Or experienced any low.
I'm not holding my breath, but I think I've lost some weight. And my cardio workout got easier.
That was one side effect that I noticed before. I seem to have more "gas in the tank".
I swear I only took 20 units! Bloosugar is down where it was yesterday. This time I at least had a somewhat plan. Domino's Veggie Pizza.
I guess 15 units tomorrow
It could be the hand -- its really not bothering, but I feel better today.
I took my first dose of glucaphage last night and boy did I see a difference in insulin usage. I dropped to 25 units and sugar stayed below 120 most of the everning. I did eat extra carbs and finally got sugar to 147.
It was at 97 when I woke up, and I took 25 ubits again. Sugar stayed below 150 all day without effort.
So I wouldn't have to eat more like last night, I only took 20 units. Cross fingers!
My high was 38 units twice a day with some sliding scale.
While I've been recovering from surgery, a very frustrated diabetic post to the comment.
I couldn't find it but I have a piece of advice to share with anyone frustrated.
Pick one thing you can change in concentrate and that one thing.
I personally recommend exercise as that one thing to change. Pick something you can do and pick the time that you can do it. Find a way to reward yourself for doing it and reaward little steps.
If it is only five minutes at the end of the day you're doing five minutes more than you were.
I'm doing well with it. Not sleeping as well as I would like, and the pain the first three days was worse that I'd remembered.
The good news no pain from carpal tunnel. In fact my hand is the hurt unless I do something with.
Here it is.
Sorry, I'm so sporatic. Life is that way in the summer though.
Will be getting the surgery in the morning, they changed the time which may be hard on the blood sugar.
I'm on this major roller coaster and it is NO fun.
Upped the insulin dose, which is the right time to. Surgery is on Saturday. I want to get blood sugar down and stabilized, especially since I figure on no exercise for at least 2-3 days.
