Because I have a $10,000 deductable we are holding off on a few other problems until July 1🍀. I've seen this endocrinologist only twice. The second visit was to tell me about having diabetes. She once mentioned a prescription to see a nutritionist but I think after July 1 I will pester her about that. My liver tests ALT and ASP? we're high and we're holding off on an MRI for that. I wonder if diabetes has an effect on that too. I'm happy to hear about your nocturnal eating. This has just started like when she said I was diabetic. I never sleep a night.
I've been hypothyroid for 25 years. My husband was treated for serious cancer
for a couple years and he's in remission for now but I've held it together because he's alive but physically it's taken a toll on me. My thyroid strength had to be doubled because I was so tired. I called the Dr. to see if we could do a blood test. I only had energy to drive us to Mayo. In 2018 he had 4 surgeries, 4 months of chemo being in the hospital and 25 rounds, 5 days a week for 5 weeks on the proton beam. But….. we've always tried to live our normal life. I feel like we need duct tape to hold me together until July🍀
My mother and sisters are diabetic and I have native American and Spanish in me.
The thyroid problems are over and taken care of. My numbers are good.
I'm glad to hear about the dietician being covered by Medicare. It was interesting about maybe my number was in the way down anyway. I feel like I know so little but I've already learned several things from this forum. Thanks 😊

I read on the web but didn't understand it well because it was about type 1 diabetes, and I know little about that. The article recommended a small snack with apple and a little peanut butter or whole wheat crackers with cheese. I never eat anything like rice crackers because it is a carb, and I certainly wouldn't eat it in the middle of the night. I drink milk before bedtime and it seems to make me content and a little sleepy, and I know it digests slowly. Rice cakes wouldn't do anything serious to your sugar levels in ten minutes, anyway. You need to get recommendations from a nutritionist and a schedule that works for you. You can't do much about numbers in the night, so planning ahead is the answer. I learned to count carbs during the day and then scheduled my food to limit the carbs and increase the exercise if I eat too many carbs at a meal. I learned to skip high carbs and I don't miss them at all now because I eat the foods that I like that are not a problem for me. I need lots of variety, however. This past week I ate spaghetti squash with eggplant in the casserole. The cheese make it taste very good. I didn't care for the spicy sausage. More later. Dorisena

We are into old VW's. This was in December last year getting ready for the electric parade. We had a lot of support from different VW clubs and friends. through my husband's cancer. I think he'd just been told he was in remission. His beard had been growing back for 9 months.
I have this forum full of information and wisdom. Leslee
