Hi guys.. I am writing to ask you guys what you prefer. I know everyone's body is different but would love your input. So, I am on coumadin for blood clots in my lungs. Feeling better and going back to work this week but with my new diabetic diagnoses I am really trying to make sure I count carbs. The coumadin makes my breath smell yucky and dries my mouth out. I know it is not my sugar cause my sugars levels are great now.. What do some of you guys eat for breath freshners or do you eat sugar free candy.. If so what is your favorites.. I just need to put something in my pocket so I won't blow away my coworkers or customers.
Also, been having big toe numbness. I saw that maybe biotin or B12 can help the numbness and also carbs. Anyone taking this supplement and if so what is the best kind you have found and how much do you take?? I know there are people out there who have done their homework on this. I am searching too.. but would like a little help from my friends.. that way when I see my doc.. I can say my friend take this should I?? ha.. Trying to be my own advocate..
So, unfortunately, I have a profession that sometimes we don't get a meal and I am really worried about this. I hear if I don't then my liver can dump sugar and cause my AIC to go up. So, is there things I can eat in my pocket other than celery, carrots and grapes?? I never used to get a meal even in a 12 hour shift and always had M&M in my pocket.. Now, I haven't had candy since diagnoses in April. can you guys help me please.. I am doing so well and I am afraid that this job is going to make me go backward.. Please help.. thanks Mary
