My bg this morning was 95.  I have decreased both kinds of insulin, but find I will have to use a small amount of the fast acting insulin on occasion.  It is no where as often as before and I'm using a fraction of what I have had to use in the past.  I'm content with the change in my BG! I… MORE

So after following a careful diet, my sugars started to rise and topped at about 200.  I blamed it on eating too much protein, so I reduced the amount of protein and the bg bounced down a bit to about 150.  A friend suggested that it could be due to some sugar-free candy (Reese's cups) that I… MORE

Sadly, the GLORIOUS CHICAGO BEARS did not play well-enough to even breath the word "Superbowl" but that will not keep me from enjoying the game.  Superbowl Sunday is much like a second Christmas around my house as silly as that seems.  I've always made some sort of themed dinner menu and… MORE

Perhaps a bit of a set-back, but my fasting BG was 172 today.  :(  I'm not sure why, but I suspect it is the protein again.  I had to use fast-acting insulin today.  Just a bit...but still.  I felt pretty down about it.  I know that I'm not as far back as when I started, and so moving forward… MORE

My fasting bg was bounced up a bit today (156).  In analyzing what I ate yesterday, the problem was too little fat, too much protein, and I realized later that there was also all-purpose flour in something I had eaten.  Tonight, dinner was Italian sausage with a homemade sauce made of… MORE

My fasting bg seems to be settling between 84 and 111.  At this point, I have eliminated my need for fast-acting insulin and cut my baseline by half.  If I have too much protein the day before, I get a higher reading.  Similarly, if I do not eat enough fat, I will feel hungry, have less… MORE

Yesterday, my fasting BG was 127, which is what I expected since I had too much protein the day before.  Today, it was 89 even though I fasted yesterday to prepare for a minor procedure today.  (All went well with it.) I had been craving liver and onions.  I love liver and onions, but I've… MORE

Today's fasting BG was 97!  For two days, where my BG was 164 and 157 respectively, I bounced, really bounced, over my fasting number today!  Especially since I had to cut the protein and increase fats to push my body toward ketosis.  Fat bombs and salads with oil and vinegar dressing have… MORE

Today's bg was 202.  Again, yesterday, I had more protein than intended and not enough fat as is the case today.  Tonight, I went out with friends to celebrate the birthday of one of them.  To stick with the diet, I had the sashimi platter and asked the staff to hold the rice.  It came with… MORE

My fasting BG was 154, which did not surprise me in light of yesterday's menu weighed in at only 54% fat intake.  Also, the proteins were a bit high so I suppose I should count my blessings that it was not higher.  Today's diet calculated to 74% fat, so I am excited to see tomorrow's fasting… MORE
