Hara said: "I have been having problems also with my blood sugars staying down. I'm happy if my lowest is 100 cause that's where I feel the best. My highest has been 284. I told my doctor that but he didn't seem concerned, but I was.
 
I am having trouble with my sugars again now to. I don't know if it's stress or what.?

Hara, are you taking meds?  What are you eating?

If you are having trouble keeping you levels low try writing down not only what you eat but how much of it and the carb count of that serving.  You might be surprised to see what you will find.

Hara - I forgot to say check your sugar 2 hours after eating.  This will tell you how different carbs affect you sugar levels.

Sorry I didn't find this until today. cry
 
Plus I am now taking 1500 mg of Metphormin so my diabetes medication has gone from 500mg ER to 500mg 3times a day. I told him my scalp hurt and went on down the line even telling him my tongue hurt. He looked at my tongue, listened to my lungs but that was it really. Usually I get asked if I'm drinking enough fluids or rather water but he didn't even do that. I guess I need to go back to eating like a rabbit and make my own fruit smoothies like I did last time.
 
I was in so much pain today when I went to my dr's office today I just about bit his head off. I am defenitly finding a new doc.  I asked him about the cough I had and how I could not breath right no matter what he heard or didn't hear in my lungs. He says, "Well I offered you a steriod and you didn't take it." I said, "You offered me Prednizone which I'm allergic to and could potentually kill me, as my Rheumy found out." I just asked for a steriodial Inhaler and a different inhaler because the ProAir wasn't working for me. Well I got the steriodial inhaler and the pain killers today. I just have to go back to get the other inhalers tomorrow.
