Well, I am now on Lantus at night. It has been a tough year for me. Significant hearing loss in my right ear, mild loss in my left (surprise to me), I am being checked for Cushing's syndrome, having several thyroid tests being done, sent to physical therapy for my fibro and arthritis, just recovered from pneumonia, back on steroids due to inflammation in my left shoulder, and all of this causes stress on the body and sends my blood sugar numbers out of control. :(
So, I am back looking to rethink my eating (again), lower carbs, still provide nice yummy dishes so the family doesn't feel deprive, but also so we don't break the food budget. I need to lose some weight (which is HARD).
Here is my list of meds: Metformin 1000 mg 2x a day, glipizide at night, tradjenta morning, and now lantus (currently at 20 iu) at night. Those are just my diabetic meds.
I can't wait to be able to read through things again and reconnecting.
