Sorry I am late again. This month I thought we could all post our A1C's and see where we go from there. I have a Dr. Apt in just a couple of days and then will learn where my A1C is when the results come in. I am also going to post my weight each week again. You will find it on the Sat. Posts. I hope this Discussion finds all in good Spirits. This month is the Beginning of the Holiday Season so try to stay on top of our Diabetes and still enjoy some of the treats of the Season.

Last nite my number was over 300 again. Ann cooked a late Supper and the stress was so high today that the numbers went up again. I will have to go with Soup and sandwich for supper while they are here and have Supper at Lunch time so as not to have the high numbers in the pm again. I will go check my numbers now and let you know if it has come back down.
Well it is back down to 119 not as low as I want it after bed but lower than it was. I hope when the family are coming down to do things for others that I am here. But if I have a trip planed then I will be gone not changeing my plans for any one that is for sure. The kids are not going to control my comings and goings at all. I told the kids I might not be at the Holiday meals and you would have thought I was comiting a crime as not to want to eat out away from home so I guess I will go get a little bit to eat and then come home and enjoy the quiet and quilt a little like get started while I can work in peace. They all have lives of their own now why can't they just live theirs and let me be out to pasture so to speak. I am not cooking or washing up at all any more on Holidays as I did it for years and now it is my turn to eat and run.
See how they like it. LOL
well got to run Will post my weekly numbers tonight after 9 pm my time.

Good Morning All!
Here are my numbers for last week and then I will start on the new week.
Mon the 9th @ 4:13 am it was 70 then @ 8:02 pm it was 65
Tues the 10th @ 6:38 am it was 74 @ 4:50 pm it was 215 and then @ 8:44 pm it was 122
Wed. the 11th @ 6:35 am it was 55 then @ 3:21 pm 143 @ 8:18 pm it was 162
Thurs. the 12th @ 6:30 am 120 then @ 11:08 am 96 and @4:55 pm 193 and then @ 8:18 pm 75
Fri. the 13th @ 6:19 am it was 118 then @ 10:49 am it was 159 and @ 5:55 pm it was 193
Sat. the 14th @ 7:07 it was 80 and then @ 5:08 pm it was 196 and then @ 8:24 pm it was 84
On Sun the 15th @ 7:54 am it was 76 then at 11:40am after we got back from Golden Corral it was 130 and @ 6:43 pm it was 186 I went to bed before 8 last night so there is no more numbers for last week.
As you can see even being a Type 2 for over 30 years I still have trouble with the control of my Diabetes. Some days are better than others. It is a program in progress one day at a time. I know there are others out there that have better control and some out there that are in the same boat as me. So with God on my side maybe today will be a good day and maybe I can get a better handle on it. I ate more for Breakfast yesterday then I did for Supper so tell me what went wrong at the end of the day.

Good Morning all;
I am doing well if any one wants to talk to me for the next Month I will only be on here on Sundays as I now have two Grandchildren and their Mother living with us. Ann and the kids came in last night about 11:50 pm and they will be here till she gets her money and finds a place to move into. If you have my phone number and want to talk give me a call. I will have the computer shut off while they are here except that one day a week so as to make sure the kids are taken care of. If I can get them down to bed by 8 pm every nite then I will come on here for about an hour at night. Well I need to get my shower and then dressed for the day before I wake every one else up. Get them in a routine and things will go easier for us all. Keep your fingers crossed that Bill passes his tests tomorrow and then he can get to trucking like he wants to.

It is bad I am going to have to shut down the computer as my computer was online when I came into the room this morning and then it didn't want to work like it should. So the Computer will be off completely till Sunday mornings about 6 am.I will stay online till they get up and then off again. Love all of my friends here.

No her 3 year old messes with it and then I have trouble with the thing. All Ann has to do is ask and she can get on it.

hi i am new to this site and though i would give a few comments and hopefully get some good input back .i have been a diebetic fo 18 yrs now. at first my diebetes was controlled by drugs and rabbit food .then i realized that wasnt the way, so then i got active and lost about 100 lbs. and went totally off all meds for about 10 yrs .but about 5 yrs ago i had a blood clot in my leg which blindsided me, and put me on bed rest for about10 mts. then a heart attack now my weight has gone back up . diebetes drugs dont work very well. so i inject insulin in large amounts.i also work my butt off at the swimming pool 4-5 days a week . still my a1c is like 8+. i cant seem to loose the weight either. and i know is the biggest factor too. my doc says that my diebetes has become brittle, and i am highly insulin resistant so were do i go from here. i try to eat right. but like example i eat a salad ,with just a little dressing and 1 hour later bs goes up to like 300 and takes hours and insulin to recover. got any bright ideas , also what ever i do i have to do keeps it stable. i have to be concerned about being on coumadin too, for the blood clotts so green leafy veggies have to be consistant is there any longtime dibetics out there that can give me there advise. oh yea also now a little over a year ago my insurance company dropped me and no one will insure me that i could possibly afford so until next year when i become elidigable for medicare medical cost are a problem too perscription drugs and testing supplies

richho check under Medications there is a Discussion on Help with Medications. There are alot of sites that can help you to get your Meds. I hope that helps you some.
I am 53 my last birthday and have been a Diabetic since I was 16 and every day is a trial and error for me also. Back in 1991 I had an accident at work and twisted my spine in 6 places it is hard for me to exercise but I keep doing it cause I know it is the only way to get the weight off. Go to the American Diabetes Assosiation and check out some of the information they have there for a Diet and also check out the American Heart Ass. site too, between the two you may be able to get the help with a diet that works for you. I hope this has helped you some.
I am no Medical Doctor or Nurse but I have had diabetes for over 35 years now and that is how I get the extra help I need at times.

mine was 5.6 with out pills for three months. i really have to watch it though.

Edie 2009-11-06 12:26:50 -0600 Report

Mamaoak you are doing a great job also I wish mine was that low. With out pills that's not bad but be careful so as not to get sick with out the meds and i hope your numbers are in line with that A1c
How is your weight doing also? I hope you don't have any to lose and if you do I hope it comes off easily for you.

Edie 2009-11-05 13:59:50 -0600 Report

I got a call from the Drs. office today and mine went down from 8.5 last time to 7.5 this time. I am also down from 262 last time to 258 yesterday. My chol. is now at normal for both good and bad they said also my BP was 130/79 this time. So that means I had a good Appointment yesterday down 4 pounds in the last 3 months. Every thing is heading in the right direction they said. I will post my numbers later for this week tomorrow or Sunday as they are from Monday to Sunday in the book. I got the Double Wedding Ring Quilt done this morning at 4:20 and will post it shortly here for all to see. When I get caught back up with my house work then I will start on another quilting project.

My A1c in late August was 6.8, I won't get another till early Jan. But since I started testing in September, I have stayed between 80-125 except for twice when it was 163 (due to eating something I shouldn't have). I have lost 20 lbs. Started at 231.5 and am now 211. I am trying not to dread the holidays, I am trying to keep in mind that I just need to make good choices and keep excercising. Here's hoping we all have better A1c's the next test! Suzy

Edie 2009-11-06 12:24:16 -0600 Report

Your numbers, weight and A1C are all great. Keep up the good work and I hope you get to the weight you want to be soon.

I was just thinking about that Edie, your right we have come upon the holiday season very quick this year. Thanksgiving and Christmas are my favorite ones. But Im kinda down in the dumps cause I cant eat all those good sweets and all. But I have picked out a few of the good receipts on this site, that I cant wait to try. I don't have my recent A1C results not till end of month, I will post them. Enjoy everyone!!

Edie 2009-11-06 12:22:52 -0600 Report

I am sure there are recipes out there that we can have over the Holiday Season and not cost us to much in our numbers fight. Have a very merry Holiday Season.

Try making all of your desserts with Splenda instead of sugar. You can get the equal amounts on the package, that way you can afford (blood sugar wise) to eat some of them, in moderation.
