Thanks for your help, as for my small intestines no it doesn't work well it is what they call hypo-motility works extremely slow (autonomic dysfunction). At the present time I'm being further tested as the intestines will need more surgery. One more test and then they will know what surgery or type I will need.
The osteopenia wasn't something we thought I had - but with the new onset of the thoracic scoliosis it makes sense.View Thread
The reason why I am asking is I just found out via a cervical xray I am showing I have osteopenia so more tests were done. I need to increase my Vit. D3 to 3,000mg a day (level was only 40) and add at least 1,000mg more of calcium a day (that level was 8.9). I am at a -2.0 on the bone density test. Not quite osteoporosis but close. I was thinking about adding some Fish oil but not sure. My Potassium is now 3 - 20MEQs a day.
I eat yogurt, Swiss cheese, 3 bowls of mixed greens, salmon daily. I thought I was getting enough of the necessary vitamins and supplements. I now get Vit. B12 shots monthly.
My sugars are running between 75-105 daily. My doctor is not sure if my lower vit. levels are because of just a small part of my large colon is left. I apparently am not absorbing my vitamins. Any suggestions?View Thread
Auriga thanks for the tip that you gave anon... about the second drop of blood.
My doctors never said anything about which blood drop to use, today just to see if there was a difference, the 1st drop after eating said 90, second drop same finger different test strip was 86. I'll start using the 2nd drop from now on.
I have my lancet only on 2 because I have a condition called clubbed fingers cause by my lungs - so I am not allowed to go to deep or I'd have blood everywhere.View Thread
Hi Flute I must really b in the group of not normal -
In 85' I was diagnosed with hypoglycemic and stayed that way almost until 2001 when I finally had normal sugars, then in 2007 when I was given large amounts of antibiotics and steroids to battle a problem I had - I believe the meds cause my D T2.
So when my tarsal tunnel syndrome hit me I was lucky if I even hit the 75 range at anytime. I ended up having 2 surgeries within 6 months for it that was in 1993. Clearly my cause was not high sugars.View Thread
Jason you have to do what you must if you want to survive.
You talk about having to give up so much - I wish diabetes was the only disease I had to deal with but it is not - at least you still can choose the right foods to quit and or eat. I have to eat for 3 different diseases and my choice of foods are much more limited than yours.
You can put it into remission if you want to but it does require WATCHING and COUNTING all carbs. You can control this if you make the effort.
I have put diabetes in remission - and I have only a limited amount of food to eat.View Thread
