But brown rice tastes terrible compared to white rice. I know. I eat all my Asian ethnic food plain, which is to say not served with rice. And I make it myself, so I can leave out the sugar. I do...

A whopping 6 units. I think I will stabilize here for a week or more, in case the Bydureon is not all out of my system yet and is still having some effect. If it is still acting, I might need to go...

It is going very, very well. I do not know why, but taking a basal dose of insulin seems to allow me to to eat a moderate amount of carbs, like up to 25 at lunch or supper, but I still can not do...

Yes, Patdart. A breakfast that a couple of years ago would have dropped my blood sugar by 20 points or so.

No. Roughly 60 grams of canned mushrooms, using the carb info on the label for half of the 113 grams total, and 1/4 of a yellow bell pepper, which should be not quite 3 grams of carbs but I added 2...

Diet only for the first two years, diet plus Metformin for the next 13 years. 9 years longer than Shanny, not 9 years total. 15 years total.

Diabetes is inevitably a progressive disease. LCHF can slow the progression, but it is not going to stop it, or it would be a cure, not a treatment. I have been diabetic for over twice as long as you...

No, Shanny, your blood sugars are not "Normal." Show me an A1C of 5, and I will call your blood sugars normal, but yours is 6.7, higher than mine has ever been except the last year.

It is good science. You just don't like the commentary on it, that it implies eating carbs is okay.

Please be advised that not all diabetics can or will eat low-carb. And even the ones that do...

It is nevertheless valuable information. Not everybody is on LCHF, nor even desires to be. And it is good for people trying to reduce rather than eliminate carbs, perhaps with a goal of LCHF. And it...

Food order affects blood glucose levels

Thought this article would be of general interest. The upshot is to eat vegetables first, then protein, and finally carbs (if you must) for a measurably lower effect on blood sugar.

106 this morning. I think I will start the Lantus tonight at bedtime. It is only 2 units, so if I go low it won't be all that low!

Apple juice is almost lethal. That stuff has more sugar in it than Coke, ounce for ounce. The tortilla chips were probably minor in comparison.

Thank you for your quick responses, RCG. I value the experienced advice!

Starting insulin + Metformin

So, after the adverse reaction to Bydureon I chose to go the insulin route. I have been prescribed lantus, and I insisted on a vial rather than a pen. Being a nurse, I am accustomed to using vials...

And the verdict is in. I definitely have a "localized reaction" to the Bydureon. I chose to go on insulin rather than try another of the GLP-1 agonists. So, the Bydureon experiment is over.

Oooh, all the good parts of granola but no oats! This would be perfect with yogurt, or made into summer porridge, or with HWC on it. Yum! I am so very, very tired of eggs.
