So this morning started with a good (for me) BG reading. I then promptly forgot to take my tablets after breakfast and then spent the day on the run. I did however, remember my lunch time tablet, which is the one I more often than not forget.
I got a big plus from my podiatrist, my feet are fully functional and I felt every little poke. You have to close your eyes so you can't cheat. So that is great news. She also commented that my slight hairy toes (OMG) are a good sign that I still have great blood supply to my legs and feet - BONUS. I promptly got them waxed this afternoon at the beautician - lol.
I had lunch with a good friend who was over on a brief visit from Queensland and I choose a healthy lunch, grilled field mushrooms on sourdough bread with roasted tomato and avocado. It was yummy and healthy. Can pat myself on the back about that one.
Hopefully my reading tonight will be good as well.
I have made a decision not to test each and every day, so Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays I will do the fasting test (before breakfast) and then 2 hours after the evening meal.
Occasionally I will also test 2 hours after breakfast and lunch as well. Just to get an idea of what's happening with certain food choices. My dietician would like me to test more often, my specialist is happy to support my choice.
Now I just need to get the courage to do to the dentist! For those of you new to the disease, or who don't know anything about diabetes, infections in the mouth are a possible consequence. As is numbness on your feet, and ulcers on the legs. Reduced blood to your eyes can also cause blindness. Untreated infections can result in gangrene and the loss of your lower limbs or toes. It is a scary disease and as I have recently found out, it is progressive. So that means no matter how good you are, it will still get worse. But hopefully that also means, the more you try, the slower that happens. If only someone had explained that to me a long time ago.
Today has been another lightness of being day, partly because of the good results re my feet and largely because I got to spend a couple of hours with a great friend, and then another couple getting pampered at the beautician.
