blood sugar

  1. Diabetes
    Things were going good for two weeks, despite an increase in anxiety and the worsening of my schizophrenia. Yesterday and today, I seem to be hit by the blues. Not severe depression, just very awful sadness. My blood sugar doesn't show much change (nothing I didn't see last week or the week...

    So I just stumbled upon some research that I wanted to share. And also to say, I think anecdotally it has possibly worked for me! So I was Vit D deficient for over a decade. I was at a 6 which is critical but no doctor said it was a big deal. WRONG. I had crippling anxiety and panic attacks...

    Hello I am pre diabetic. A1C at 5.7. Fasting blood sugar 90 (within normal range) So I bought a glucose meter to take matters into my own hands and find out my post meal blood sugar. Last week when lightheaded after a meal I took glucose meter 2 hours after and it was 113. Tonight I was...

    Hello all. I have had T1 for over 9 years and I have very good blood sugar control (last A1C was 6.3) so I can say for certain that this situation is not a fluke. I like to eat hard-boiled eggs for breakfast (usually just 2) and I find that if I do not cover enough for them my blood sugar will...

  7. Diabetes Diet and Nutrition
    I'm a 37 year old sedentary worker who used to have a bad diet. My dad had type 2 diabetes and I've been feeling major swings between meals. If I don't eat every 30 minutes I get extremely bad brain fog (can't even remember 5 digits). So last month I started exercising and went on a low carb...

    Hi, Allow me to introduce myself. I'm type 2, diagnosed 1994, at age 45. I'm too fat, but not real fat. I've been on insulin for a long time. I maybe could be on orals, but I feel I can get better blood sugar control on insulin. Byetta gives me violent diarrhea. I've tried metformin...

    Hi All, Hope everyone is managing well. I had a cat scan last week so my doc told me not to take Metformin (I've been taking 1, 500mg twice a day) one day before and two days after the test, so I thought I'd try an experiment. <Doc doesn't know about it> I also decided this would be a good...
  11. Diabetes Symptoms
    Hi, I'm 21 and have always had blood sugar problems. Mostly hypoglycemia due to having undiagnosed celiac disease. Recently there has been concerns that I might have diabetes. I've been keeping track of my blood sugar at home. Here is where the problem starts. I am on a low carb gluten free...
