I've had a rough day due to asthma.
I rarely use my inhaler enough to use it all up before the Exp. date. Today I got mine out and guess what it was all used up. Called my pulmonologists office and he's on vacation until Jan 3rd.
So I called my NPs office and asked them to phone a new inhaler in for me.
She doesn't get to her office until 5pm so I took a predinosone and hoped for the best both breathing and glucose wise.
The pred didn't work to well but it helped enough to avoid the ER.
My bg went from 92 to 154. I took it about an hour ago and I'm down to 104.
When I have to use it I'm suppose to do a 3 day round of it. I'm trying to decide if I'm going to do a full 3 day round or not if I'm doing ok in the morning.
I hate taking predinosone due to my bgs rising, and it hinders weight loss. If I gain from it that weight stays on for a long time.
I'm not stupid I decided in 2005 that if it was a matter of breathing or not breathing I would take the stuff and deal with the bgs as best as I can.
I'd rather be alive and have temporary higher bgs
than dead with a normal bg.
It's a catch 22 any way you look at it.
Do you have asthma or know of someone who does?
How do they deal with having to take predinosone or some other med that raises glucose level?
Exercise: none today due to asthma.
Tomorrow if I'm doing ok I'll either go to the pool or use the treadmill as long as the hip allows.
I was reading a diabetic magazine tonight and it said that even shopping if you've been inactive for a long time could be counted. So tomorrow I could count that as exercise unless I have to sit down a lot.
I have to do some shopping tomorrow so that and 2-5 mins on the treadmill may be it.
Food: I did good.
When the asthma was at it's worse I just didn't feel like eating.
Today was all about forcing myself to eat enough so I wouldn't go low.
It was my second day of sticking with my program and I was more mindful of making better food choices
Water: I did well with that too.
While it wasn't a fun day I'm really pleased with myself on the food and water front. As far as exercise goes I'm ok with how that turned out.
