I am on my way home from Peru. My first flight from Iquitos to Lima was delayed and I get the pleasure of spending 24 hours waiting for the next flight home to alaska. The purpose of my trip was to go and teach at a pastors conference and it was a great time of teaching and fun with great Peruvian people.
Now my BG is a whole other issue. Due to the long travel I got all messed up only medication. After missing 2 days of my metformin I decided that restarting it while I was here might not be a very good thing. When I start on Metformine I need to stay close to a bathroom.20-30 min is about as far away from a bathroom that I dare get. Being is the jungle region of Peru, could make this a problem. I figured that a 2 week vacation away from my Managment plan would not hurt me, and I had been keeping my BG under control anyways.
Well I think this was not the best choice. My BG numbers have not been under 160 often spiking way higher. The biggest conch that I have had is vision problems. During the last 2 weeks my vision has become more and more blurry. I told my wife that after I get home and get my BG under control again if my eye sight does not improve I am going to see the doc.
I plan on making more trips to Peru so I will need to figure out a way to keep things under control.

The food choices are hard too. Rice, plantains, and yucka with most meals. The fish and chicken were amazing though. Couldn't eat veggies because of cleanliness issues
