Iíll see what he says tmrw. He may say nothing. He did give me high cholesterol pills to take every other night which I have. The very last thing I want is insulin injections. Then thatís bad. Letís hope it never gets there. Just coasting along the last couple years.

I'm not a fan of injections of any kind. Don't even want to see other people get 'em.

That's one reason I changed what I eat and how active I am. I'm trying to forestall insulin injections as long as I can. You're seeing firsthand what happens to blood sugar levels when you just "coast" (6.5 --> 7.1). If you really want to avoid insulin injections, you're going to have to change something. Just sayin'...

the only way to prevent yourself from getting injections is to do something about it before it gets that bad.

you change the oil in your car every 3 months. you dont way until its all burnt and dry..

Preventative BEFORE it gets bad is the key to solving your issue about never having insulin injections.

I didnt want insulin injections and I will take it a step further... I didnt want medication at all so I did everything I could to make that my goal

you can do that too... its just a matter of making that a priority.

Just got back from Dr.

Went to Dr. appointment and a substitute Dr. was covering for regular Dr this week. Everything good except sugar is a little high. BP was 134 over 74...not bad.He increased the Metformin to twice a day morning and night as he said one tablet a day does little. He also said to look at something called Trulicity & gave me a pamphlet and says once a week injection. Then he wanted me to do a sleep Apnea test I said no way not interested. Then I said no way will I start injections. That’s for bad cases. Not for me. I told him I’m boarder line but he said for sure I have Diabetes. So I said OK. I think I saw this Trulicity on TV commercial. The usual talk about no pasta or Pizza and bread. He made another appointment in three weeks to see my regular PCP doctor. In NOT gonna take injections. So.....two different Doctors and two different opinions. This is why it’s frustrating and people say the hell with it.

And this is the reason people come here and listen to our valued members . The lived with it . They were in the same place as you. They made similar mistakes and they try to stop others from making more mistakes .

Itís up to you who you listen to. If you only listen to the people that say things you want to hear, then you are basically your own doctor.

Sometimes we need to listen to things we donít want to hear

If you donít take important dietary steps:

Diabetes is progressive
It WILL continue to get worse
You WILL need to continue to take more medicine
You WILL need insulin injections and it wonít be far off

Only IF you donít do anything about your eating habits

Hi, I had time on my hands so I did a glucose meter reading 3.5 hours after a Diner cheeseburger and fries I gave half to my wife. The reading was 125. Isnít this a great number? I felt relief it wasnít at the fasting morning number in the 160ís. 125 seems to be good. Right?

3 1/2 hours is a long time and you most likely started to go down already . In the future if you Check 1 hour and 2 hours after you will see how it affected you. 3 1/2 is too late most of the time. Probably tells me you were at 160 - 200 after an hour ( just a guess)

My back went out, herniated lumbar disc. Painful. Went to ER little relief then went to Pain Management and got Steroid pills and in one day pain almost gone. Point being steroids can raise glucose readings. So glucose numbers will not be accurate. The pain from the lumbar was really bad. But almost gone now thank goodness. Medrol is oral steroid.

I'm glad your back is feeling better so quickly -- back pain can be really miserable. I do hate that almost anything bad that happens to our bodies spikes our blood sugar. But at least your blood sugar should be going back to its previous level soon.
