A quick update

As the day went on I was having trouble keeping my BG up. 8 hours after the Apidra inj. I was still getting lowish readings (90s) I was eating potato chips, soup, sandwiches with bread and still not getting my BG up.

I was afraid to go to bed. at 12:00 midnight my BG was 78, I eat a sandwich with cheese and jalapeño, mayo. 12:30 AM BG 77 I eat 2 slices of bread with maple syrup on them. 1:00 AM BG 93 went to bed... worried, why is the Apidra lasting so long.

1:10 AM I have an infected finger from a cat bite (almost all better now). I have been on antibiotics (Sulfamethoxazole) for 8 days now.

Some of the side affects of the antibiotic is low BG and diarrhea which I have not had... BECAUSE 2 hours after taking the antibiotic I eat yogurt with live culture to replenish that lost in the digestive tract from the antibiotic. Well I have not been eating yogurt today forgot in all the excitement.

I got out of bed and eat some yogurt.

4:00 AM alarm... checked BG 180 why simple without bacteria to digest the food I was not getting the carbs into my system. eat yogurt, ad bacteria, and up goes BG

My BG is back to normal


I am not a doctor this is what works for me

Oh for gosh sake . . . how maddening. Glad you finally remembered the yogurt . . . sorry you had to get back outta bed to go get it. Glad you're back to what passes for normal around here.

I got advised here by gastroenterologist that yoghurt is good, although not potent enough for probiotic purposes if you're trying to replenish good bacteria after antibiotics course (and I've been on a tonne of those). I was also advised to buy the potent probiotics that you can buy in health food stores or pharmacy in some cases. Yoghult is Ok although apparently that's not strong enough either according to gastroenterologist who is currently treating me. He says that yoghurt in particular the goods in it don't reach your lower colon at all. Not sure if you've heard of that? I only found that out recently by seeing gastro.... I was always told yoghurt was a good probiotic.

I thought you just had to be sure to use yogurt with live cultures in it. I have bought granola with probiotics in it also found in the yogurt section. Not sure if it is the best, but every little bit helps I figure
