OK, I am in a period of quandary. This has never happened before but for the past three weeks or so, I have been craving, to the point of being ravenous, for comfort foods or as many call them - MAJOR CARBS.
People we are talking in two days I have polished off eight (8) of those “Schwan’s Personal Pizza;s”; Ham and Cheese Bagel Sandwiches; My Kids Kraft Mac & Cheese; Cracker Barrel’s Country Fried Steak with gravy, Mashed Potatoes w/Gravy, Fried Okra, Mac&Chz, and the Apple Pie Alamode; Hardees Steak Biscuit and Gravy; etc…
I cannot get enough; especially over the past week. I will be asking the “MAGIC” folks on Friday when I go see them. Sorry MAGIC is a relatively new clinic/concept at the VA Medical Center in Salem, VA. I do not know if this is throughout the VA or not. MAGIC, itself is an acronym for: Metabolic Assistance Group Intervention Clinic.
My BGs are maintaining with a LOT of Lantus in the low to mid 200's with an occasional hit of Novolog. I have to be honest. I have not been good with my injections lately either.
Any insight until I get to the clinic would be appreciated. I know I can’t be the only one who has been in this sort of situation.
Your input and assistance is greatly appreciated.
Doc - I may be called "Doc" but that does not mean this is my specialty!
