4 days ago · Morning glucose test in Diabetes/Endocrine System

Never heard of "dawn effect" or "Symoji". Will check into these. This is what i'm finding out. EVERYTHING effects your blood sugar. Thanks for help. My doctor is useless. $75.00 co-pay whenever I go and still no answers. I pay out of pocket to see a dietician. Doing this on my own by changing my lifestyle. It's a ride!! I've lost 30 pounds and dropped A1C to 5.8. Just working on getting on track after the Holidays. Again, thanks for the help.

Can your test be higher if you are cold? We keep our thermostat set at 61 overnight so the house is chilly when I get up. So I sat with a blanket over me for a couple of minutes before taking my blood test and the numbers were lower? Also, I've had a lot a headaches due to barometer changes and was wondering if the headaches can affect my blood tests.

Your husband is very important to take care of but if you don't take care of yourself how are you going to care for him? Is there someone who can take him to an appointment if it interferes with your appointments? You need to see someone that can help you deal with your pain and determine whether it is diabetes caused or not. The longer you wait – the longer your pain exists. Also, if you need to start taking meds for your diabetes please do so. Your health is more important than fighting your blood levels all the time. Prayers to you as you go through your struggles.

JK, I know where you are coming from. This week has been tough. Totally worn out and I have family coming on Saturday. I will be happy when things slow down a little. Going to keep everything simple for Christmas. The kids are just going to have to help out. Have a great Christmas. Let's plan on getting back on track after the new year.

JK, The ice made it so much more manageable for me. I had let the pain go for too long and it took awhile for the ice to work. Now I use it as soon as I really start limping. It keeps the swelling/inflamation down and eliminates the total leg pain.

I like your way of work/exercising!!! I have a lot of Christmas decorations to put up and that's what I'm going to do. Clean as I go. Like you said many of the stretches/exercises we need to do are just the same as physical therapy. FYI Who looks at the top of the doors anyway?? I'm 5'3 and can no way clean the top of the doors unless I use a chair. My husband won't let me climb a chair so I have a dust brush that I use to clean them off. My grandkids are coming right after New Years for a couple of days!! Cleaning and polishing sounds like a great idea for them. They can even earn a little $$$$ for doing so. Have a very Blessed Christmas!!!

Have you tried ice as a therapy for your bursitis? I was to the point where I could not even drive the pain was so bad. For some reason the bursitis in my hip really bothered my knee. I actually had pain from hip to ankle. I even tried a brace for awhile because my husband was laid up and I had to mow the lawn. My chiropractor told me the only thing to help the swelling in my hip was to ice it. Every evening and when I can during the day I sat on an ice pack. It took 2-3 weeks of doing this before I really felt better. I limp when I walk and it hurts but nothing like it was. When it gets bad I sit on an ice pack off and on for a couple of days and that takes care of it. I'm never pain free and occasionally take Excedrin Back and Body for the pain. I pray that you can find a solution that can help some of your issues.
