Have you ever felt a little low, only to check your blood sugar and it is Ok?
I have always thought that this was due to a rapid drop in blood sugar levels. But that started me thinking – exactly how fast is fast? In other words, at what rate must BG levels drop in [...]Continue Reading →
We deliver insulin into our subcutaneous tissue, where it absorbs into our bloodstream, the speed of absorption is determined by the type of insulin being used.
I’ve been thinking about this a little bit lately, and it stems from an experience I had during a research study at the University of Minnesota.
I had a [...]Continue Reading →
My wife & I took the first week of January off for a little rest & relaxation and time with the kids while our son was out of school. We took the kids to the local Grand Rios water park for a few days. It was a blast.
We had lots of fun, but there [...]Continue Reading →
I can personally vouch for the whole “yo-yo diet” statement. You diet to lose a bunch of weight, but when you stop dieting and go back to your old ways, guess what happens?
That’s why they recommend lifestyle changes. These just become part of your daily routine – you just make it your way of [...]Continue Reading →
I have a problem with going to extremes.
On one end is the Obsessive Compulsive record everything (stress, caffeine, amount of sleep, exercise, water intake, calories, carbs, BG’s, insulin, phase of the moon, menstrual cycle (er, my wife’s of course – see “stress” above), etc.) me.

You ever run across those little gems of information that strike a cord in you somewhere?
They seem to stick with you forever – mine tend to come in the form of quotes, music, mother nature (even in the city I often see things I would like to snap a picture of) and peoples stories [...]Continue Reading →

After feeling very good about being worthy of a [...]Continue Reading →
I had one of those “Why am I awake” moments last night. Yep, a low blood sugar.
Sometimes I wake up and can tell right away that I’m low. Other times, it’s a little weird. Those weird ones are the “why am I awake” ones.
Here’s how it goes. Your eyes pop open. You look [...]Continue Reading →
I’m having a rough morning, and I’d like nothing better than to crawl into a corner somewhere and close my eyes for a few minutes.
My blood sugar is REALLY high right now. My blood feels as thick as molasses and I’m so very sleepy.
I had a low last night which I apparently over [...]Continue Reading →
