I was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes and put on Metformin on June 26th, 2019. I started some diabetes diet and followed it 100% for a few weeks and could not get my blood sugar to go below 140. Finally i began to panic and called my doctor, he told me to get used to it. He said I would be on metformin my whole life and eventually insulin. At that point i knew something wasn’t right and began to do a lot of research. Then I found a diabetes website http://www.wellhealthplans.com/diabetestreatmentvideo I read that article from end to end because everything the writer was saying made absolute sense. I started the diet that day and the next morning my blood sugar was down to 100 and now i have a fasting blood sugar between Mid 70’s and the 80’s. My doctor took me off the metformin after just three week of being on this lifestyle change. I have lost over 30 pounds and 6+ inches around my waist in a month. The truth is we can get off the drugs and help myself by trying natural methods
the life out of ya!
Wow, your poor thing. After all that, I hope you didn’t have to go to work!
I temporarily work from home, fortunately! Which I could manage. But going into the call center? Ha, I I wouldn’t have. I can’t climb stairs when I’m high.
That is awful. Today my sugar got to 479 my pump was clogged. So I had to change my infusion site. . ! No BUENO!!!
I forget to give insulin so often when I eat!! I’ve been diabetic since I was 7, so you’d think forgetting wouldn’t happen often, but it still doesn’t feel like habit!
No lie. Just eating dinner reading this and said “oh shit”. Thanks for the reminder.
I understand. I often check my Inpen app to make sure I dosed correctly. food that diabetics should avoid Tonight was one of those nights that I was off by .5 units. I thought I could make adjustments with my meal. I should have added that .5 after dinner. I’ve been in the low 200s ever since, even with a short walk. I guess it’s time for a correction.
It happens. I know how you feel. Tomorrow is a new day!??
I’ve done that many times myself. Thanks for the reminder.
I’ve done that many times too. food that diabetics should avoid I finally started setting a reminder on my pump to bolus after lunch.
Oh honey I forget so often, it’s almost a problem. Set up bolus reminders if you have a pump, cuz that really helps me. I also add an extra unit and a half to a late bolus to help with the upcoming high
It still happens to me sometimes too! You are not alone here. Try to look at it this way; this was the very first time in a long time you had to deal with such a high meaning your body diabetic pressure cooker recipe book probably recuperated with no permanent damage! There are others others who only wish they can say the same. You’re doing great and just like like everyone else’s you aren’t perfect (and that’s ok ??)
It happens, being diabetic for almost 70 years I still forget to bolus !!!!!
Ohhhh poor you! I feel your pain. It ducks when that happens ??
Don’t be so hard on yourself. Diabetes should food that diabetics should avoid how many carbs a day should a diabetic intake not rule you. You rule over it. I call it live-abetes
It’s happened to all of us here. Happened to me yesterday too 🙂
I take my pump off for exercise, and today I forgot to put it back on after I was done for a couple of hours :0
I forget it to sometimes… i even Mistaken once and gave myself at night the novorapid instead of the Touyeo??????
Been there done that. I set a bolus reminder for my breakfast because it see that’s when I’m more prone to forget. If you have a pump set the reminders for meal bolus it helps. I feel the pain of the high and roller coaster. You’re not alone.
Thanks everyone for all your and ideas. It feels good to know I’m not alone and that it’s ok to make a mistake! Have a fantastic Friday!
Oh I understand! It take a while to strighten it up but you will get there. It happens.
Yes! I’ve forgot to put my food that diabetics should avoid pump back on after a shower…in a hurry to get stuff done…it’s life…?
I certainly have done it more than once. You can likely get it to level out soon.
