Why are your sugars always high? Are you on insulin? Are you eating correctly? If you are doing everything you should, then your numbers wouldnt be high all the time. Diabetes shouldnt be a disability. I know for me it isnt, and I'm not planning on dying because of it.
I would suggest you seek out a specialist who will work with you on getting your sugars down and also get you on a medication for the neuropathy. There is no need to go to the hospital so much, or to try for disability of you can get your health better.
Spelling "world" backwards shows if you have cognitive decline.View Thread
Good news! Diovan is slated to go generic next month under the name Valsartan, then a few months after that another drug in the same class called Atacand will go generic under the name Candesartan.View Thread
Hopefully some laws will go through allowing for generic biologic drugs like insulin. That is the most costly medication for me as well.
I am a big fan of generic drugs. I get a lot of people who keep saying things like all generics are made in China, that they are allergic to *all* generic medications, and that all brands are made in America. Little do they know that brand Actos is made in Japan!View Thread
This weekend was nice, went clothes shopping. I fit into a size I havent gotten into since early high school. Im getting ready for a vaca with my hubby, the first since our honeymoon! Very exciting!
I was able to get a tire on my car patched instead of having to buy new ones, so Im very happy about that.
Weather this week will be in the high 70s all but 1 day, so I've been out jogging. Speaking of which, I was trying to move a really heavy mat flat onto the track because someone put it right in my way. I ended up dropping it and it fell onto my leg and I'm now sporting a really huge swollen bruise on my shin. Tomorrow the big shots are coming in and I am wearing a dress now with the bruise as an accessory.View Thread
Hijacking means that someone has taken a topic and moved it away from the original intent.
Like say someone starts a topic about what kind of insulin you use, and someone else remarks about what kind of dog they have which makes everyone else post about their dogs. The original topic was insulin, but it has been hijacked to another topic.View Thread
Before I had my pump, I used to always carry my insulin pens with me in a glasses case (because my purse is a black hole and I lost a few). I still always carry a glucometer at all times. I used to test and inject in public, but I tried to make it where people couldnt see it. I still test in public and no one really seems to mind. I do like being able to just push a few buttons on my pump instead of having to inject at every meal.
I also carry a protein bar and a few glucose tabs. Sometimes if I am out being more active than I planned, my sugar will go low and I like to be prepared.View Thread
