Okay, yes I am an IDDM diabetic, I believe I am type 1 dependent.
I take Lantus twice daily, and Humalog 3X daily. (Well meant to).
Running around after the kids seems to be all I am doing at present due to my ulcer, as docs want me to elevate my leg. When I test my sugars at home they range from 3.0 up to 24, so yeah they are not controlled. I have tested for ketones, an that result is negative, surprise surprise.
I am a poor diabetic with my eating patterns, and my sleeping patterns, an docs put this down to the depression.
Eating patterns , I would eat very little next to nothing during the day, and have a main tea meal of night time. Nothing to eat till the following morning. I drink plenty, water etc, so I am guessing this is why I have no ketones as I am flushing them out of my body.
The foods I normally eat would consist of....(not all at once)......potatoes, pastas such as noodles
, alfredo, cheese, luncheon meat, oranges (careful with this)
, bananas, apples, mix of white and multigrain bread (toast slice
), sausages, meat patties, chicken, fish, mixed veges, peas, carrots (go easy on peas and carrots),
super wine biscuits
, cabbage, pumpkin, kumara (this is a kind of squash and I think it may have lots of carbs)
, whole milk, cholestrol free margarine, meat loaf, eggs, diet coke, marmite (does this have sugar?)
, peanut butter.
