Diabetes And Alzheimer’s Disease

There is an interesting article out about a study that was done by Suzanne de la Monte, M.D., that says that insulin resistance can be a factor in Alzheimer’s Disease. The press release on the study is here, but if you read to the bottom of the page, I also found a study that tells …

Neosporin With Insulin In Suspension

Seriously, can’t Johnson and Johnson make me some Neosporin with some insulin in suspension in it? The benefits for type1 and type 2 diabetics would be huge. I’ve always believed that high blood sugars inhibit the healing of wounds, and even went down to Loma Linda in the early 90’s to discuss someone doing a …

Survivor Night Dang It

OK, tonight’s Survivor, so I have to sit on the couch and drink Whiskey, so my diet’s going to be screwed for the day. I only had 600 calories today until now, but I just added 8oz of Whiskey to the list at Cronometer, and the calories for the day jumped to 1158. But, I …

Too Quick Dumping Metformin

OK, I might have been a little too quick dumping the Metformin… While I was in Belize, I was only eating 2 means per day, and those were mostly fish and vegetables. And, I wasn’t eating any dairy or wheat, for what that’s worth. (I seem to blow up when I eat anything with wheat …

Diabetes and Metformin

When I was in Belize for 2 weeks this month, I forgot to take my Metformin. Metformin is usually given to type 2 diabetics to help with blood sugar regulation and insulin uptake. I take it because I’m insulin resistant, and it’s supposed to help regulate my blood sugars. But, I actually felt better not …

Type 1 Diabetes Wound Care

You won’t find this in any books, but it’s something I’ve used, and believed in, for 20 years. The more sugar in your blood, the higher the chance of infection in a wound… (OK, that one’s in all the books, but read on.) So, whenever I get an open sore, that just won’t go away, …

Diabetic Forums Added

OK, the name of the site is Type 1 Forums, so I finally added the forums so that we can have some real discussions about diabetes. I’m sorry I didn’t do it earlier, since I know a bunch of you have stuff you want to takj about, and/or start fights about. LOL

Eating Fiber Lowers My Blood Sugars

I’ve been experimenting lately with oatmeal and beans. Of course I’m not eating them together, since I can’t even imagine that recipe…  LOL While on the surface oatmeal and beans both have a ton of carbs, when I eat them I don’t get the huge carb rush you’d expect. According to the second stage HCG …

Humalog vs. Novolog

Sometimes, as a diabetic, and a human being, I hate my health insurance company. I pay them $20,000 per year for 3 adults and 2 kids, and they can’t even get me my fricken insulin without screwing it up. I went to get my insulin at the pharmacy today, and my wonderful insurance company said …

Side Note on HCG

Just a side note. The HCG constipates the heck out of me, but it really seems to help with my insulin uptake. Does anyone else notice that they need less insulin when taking HCG, even if they’re not dieting? I started taking it again during the 2 days prior to my weekly testosterone shot, because …
