How is everyone doing today? I tested at 53 this morning. I was awake at 5:30AM sucking on watermelon glucose tablets. I was sick last night and skipped dinner but still took my full dose of Lantus. Live and learn!

Hello Riet, and welcome aboard! You must be managing well now, to have such a good fasting reading. That's where I'd like mine to be! :)

It's good to meet you and I hope you'll be visiting us often to get better acquainted. Thank you for joining us!

Wow hope you felt better soon. My body still feels hypo at 70. I have been reading a lot in all the books that came with my pump. I just finished reading last night about dealing with blood sugars when you are sick and they recommend even drinking some real juice if thats all you can keep down Guess they were right :)

Careful, gotta take care of yourself!

Cheers
Pam

Fbs 3/17/10

I tested at 54 this morning. Didn't feel hypo today. When I eat dinner early, my AM FBS is usually low.

106

:(

Been higher in the last few weeks. I had been holding it down, but I think work stress is getting the best of me.

106 is not a bad number. You are well within the acceptable range set by the ADA. Stress has been known to increase BS. Sometimes this will happen and can't be avoided. :)

You're like me . . . I know these are good numbers, but I really like mine UNDER 100 . . . and stress IS a big bg buster. Hope your stress level subsides soon.

Hey Shanny, no luck so far, but then again there isn't much that doesn't cause problems. Thanks for asking.

I've been using erythritol - it's a little pricey, but I don't use a lot. It is absorbed instead of being metabolized, so is less likely to create "disturbances". I got started on it when I was using Truvia . . . noticed they mix their stevia with erythritol instead of maltodextrin like the splenda people use.
