Thank you for the Newsletter. The topics are very practical and I hope to follow some tips on bg maintenance. Right now, I am following my ophthalmologist's advice to lower my weight and exercise more. I know that lowers the bg too.

Unfortunately, I strained my back a couple of months ago, and it has taken some time to stabilize. That was the time I took the codeine which was definitely an adverse effect -- not being a pharmacologist i don't know what happened. So, the acetominophen with muscle relaxant was OK, and resting and not lifting has helped immensely.

I forgot to tell my opthalmologist because in two months i must have gained weight, not being able to exercise and hardly move. I don't think that my lifting in an awkward manner a heavy load is related to diabetes, but maybe it made it worse.
