Thanks for the suggestions div2live.
Is the Blood Sugar 101 contained on this forum?
Can you please send me a link for website or specific book you are referring to.

Thanks

Is this the book you meant?


Blood Sugar 101: What They Don't Tell You About Diabetes
by Jenny Ruhl

Yes that is the book. She also has a website. You can google it if someone doesn't come along with the links pretty soon. I don't know how to put them in.

Here it is

Blood Sugar 101

John? You've told us very little about your own 20-year journey in managing your high blood sugar. Now I think it's time you told us what you eat, and any other details about your management methods.

There's not a lot to tell about the last two decades.

To be honest, I've always struggled with keeping my glucose levels down.
I'm not as self-disciplined as a lot of you are.

I just thought I might benefit from some others personal experience as apposed to doing research about it on the net and worrying myself sick.

Start with telling us what you eat. Then tell us how much insulin you use and how you dose it. Do you exercise at all?

You beg off by saying you aren't as disciplined as many of us, but it isn't even an issue of willpower - it's an issue of using methods that actually work, and when that happens, your own meter will give you the incentive to continue, because you can see good results.

So tell us what you eat. Tell us what methods you've tried that didn't work. Talk to us. We aren't going to sit here forever asking and you not giving answers. We can't help if you won't let us.

Then start reading the threads on this forum. That doesn't require interaction with us if you are not comfortable doing that. The information and knowledge on this forum is great, but unless you access it, you'll not benefit from it.

Sorry left before your response, I will post my average calorie and carb intake as it corilates with my injections when I get home I'm about to start work.

John, boy I hear myself talking a year ago. I am 65 years old and have been fighting diabetes for over 9 years now. Until last year it was a struggle. I tried to cut back, I tried to work out more, etc. etc. But I always failed, really believed I had no discipline, but looking back, at least regarding eating...I was always beat by cravings those darn things always wore me down....

Until last May, when I started this LCHF life style. I never thought of it as a diet, because I eat all I want! I ignore caloric intake, and most everything except limiting my carbs, BUT I can replace them with FAT...Butter, Heavy Cream, Meat including bacon, steak, pork chops, hamburger, ....what's not to like about that? :D

And the big deal for me was that after a couple of weeks, the cravings stopped, completely! I no longer am hounded by cravings, in fact I usually feel full even at meal time. My A1c is at 5.8! Blood Pressure perfect, Cholesterol, perfect, etc. etc. and as a side note I lost 45lbs so far without any increase in activity!

Fear not you can do this....and the alternative of losing toes, feet, eyesight, getting a bad heart, liver disease, pancreases problems, etc. Now that is something to fear.
