Aug 29, 2018 · blood sugar numbers in Diabetes/Endocrine System

Hi, the continuous blood sugar monitoring does closely estimate A1c so I believe mine will be below 7 for the first time in a long time. It offered great feedback regarding what foods really made things spike my sugars. Chips and french fries, donuts, are the worst to eat as they are a combined fat and carbo with no fiber. Ive been able to find snack foods that satisfy without raising blood sugars. One is Detour bars I buy at Costco (see attached pic). I also go for salty peanuts or apple with a nut butter such as almond. I also read somewhere that drinking water will help lower sugars so am trying to stay hydrated. Finally if you can exercise before or after your dinner that helps a ton. Even a 20 mins walk will lower my sugars amazingly into the normal range!!!

Hi, my doctor recently suggested I try Freestyle Libre continuous blood sugar monitoring system and it has been a treatment changing tool! I went from taking long acting insulin at night to taking short acting at dinner only. The 24 hour monitor showed that I was actually going low during the night while I slept. My friend Father also started using it and then discovered he is often low throughout the day and didn't realize it. It offers instant readings from an interesting needle patch you wear for 14 days and you can take as many reading as you'd like. I was initially taking 15 readings a day and the feedback showing my sugars going high has allowed me to monitor and change meals to find what helps prevent spikes. Often it is just a handful of peanuts or almonds prior to eating or at snacks that seem to work great! It also will closely show your average glucose over a time period or weeks up to 3 months and I think I will have my best A1c reading in 13 years! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS!!!!!

Mar 1, 2017 · Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome (MALS) in Digestive Health

Thanks so much for touching base. My daughter, Sarah, had her CT angiogram last week to rule out MALS and it came back negative which is a bit disheartening. She has had constant nausea for almost 3 years now. She has been scoped and all is clear and has been tested for food sensitivies. They are now thinking it is like a phantom limb pain where she has GI pain from a previous trauma of partial fecal impaction. Anyine have other ideas? I grew up in Rochester and trained at Mayo but we live in Canada. I am trying to think whether it is worth bringing her for further tests.

Feb 3, 2017 · Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome (MALS) in Digestive Health

At around my daughter’s 13th birthday we both had Chiropractic adjustments that were quite hard in our mid spine area. It was a Locum covering for our regular chiropractor . We both came home and iced our backs and felt nauseous and thought we were coming down with something. Mine went off after a few days. Her nausea never disappeared. She will be 16 in May. So I have wondered if part of that was coincidentally hormonal as things certainly changed for her around the age 13 or if it could have been caused by the adjustment, and she had some anxiety and learning challenges brewing and it all kind of hit at once

Hi, my 15 year old daughter is going to be scheduled for the CT angiogram to check for MALS. I am curious to know if there was a certain incident that triggered the beginning of MALS symptoms for you.
