Thanks so much for your quick response Mark. I am 54, 40lb more overweight, and very confused about all this. I am hoping that once we take the prednisone down lower that the diabetes will be gone. But I also have a strange feeling that I had it before the prednisone because of a alot of symptoms that I see now pertain to diabetes. How can I, we, people general not understand our bodies until it is almost too late. I guess everything else in life has taken come first, raising children, making sure their needs are met. , ect. , taking them to the doc when I feel worse. lol That is just being a partent, but it is also ignoring me. Oh well, it's here, lets deal with it. and so i will.
I have done a good job staying on low carbs.. heck didn't know much about what they were until all this so it's been a real wake up call for me. I've been reading some posts about insulin resistance. Interesting, but confusing too.. Guess I better take on thing at a time. I can see how that could happen though, and would like to find out more about it.
I had a steak last night so I do not do without fats. Actually, I have a good mixture Iwould say. I eat a lot of protein and some fat, try not to eat a lot of saturated, but I do get my fat, protein, and carbs (without bread, potatoes, and my beloved pasta) lol.
I do not touch sugar if it is not added to something already and I can't help it.
Oh, I use a hemalog pen. I do not know why I started the shots instesad of pills.
My MD decided that. It might have something to do with my liver.
Thank you so much for writing. It was very helpful. I am also bp2. so you are in good company.
I guess I am being pretty hard on myself sometimes. I've made this diet and working on keeping this insulin and diabetic thing under control. Instead I think I will give myself a big pat on the back.
