I put 2 post's up...top one is more current. Sue
Sue, I am sorry the chemo is making you feel so bad. I remember how hard it was. It is tough stuff. My 10 years old grandson, Shawn, tells me often that he is going to find a cure for cancer when he grows up. I tell him that is wonderful and I hope and pray that he can. My late husband had diabetes. He was on pills and insulin. He said often that he felt the diabetes was worst than his heart problems. He got so frustrated with the diet he had to stay on. Exercise helped him keep his sugar low but because of damage to his heart muscle he could only do so much. If you are following your diet, I really don't know much to tell you. CONGRATULATIONS on your coming granddaughter. Grandchildren are so wonderful. I am on Facebook and MySpace. My daughter that lives in SC and I play Facebook Wordscraper all the time. I have made some wonderful friends on MySpace from all over the country and even some overseas. Have a wonderful Sunday breakfast with your family. My love, thoughts and prayers are with you. Hugs, Joyce In NC
Sue, type 2 is a hard one especially with the steroid I am in the same boat. It helps eating high protein diet the day of and after. I also believe my acupuncture treatments help stress and lack of sleep all play into it, and the acupuncture really helps with that. My sugar is only high the day after my treatments I have been a dietetic for years now even before I had the cancer. Keep some raw almonds around and have a handful through out your day. The fat in the almonds helps even out the sugars.. Let me know how that works for you. Cheryl
thx Cheryl and Joyce for your help. I do munch on nuts during the day too, and it does curve my carb cravings! I havent had even a piece of bread in 2 months, and no sugars or other carbs. Levels are still running 150-165 after 2 hour fastings. I guess I am going to have to go on 2 pills a day instead of one to help me more. I am taking Metformin. Thx again!!
