This week I was given my walking papers by the Health Coach. She said she couldn't help me with anything else, I knew "everything" there was to know. I would have to see the nutritionist or CDE (certified diabetic educator) Which if she had been listening, knows that the nutritionist and I don't see eye to eye on weight loss, number of carbs per meal.....CDE would be okay, except my insurance ONLY covers one visit per year,
That was Wed. I want to make my own decisions...but I like idea of having a medical back up just in case. What I need is a big hand that says, "you can control your diabetes better than anyone else". Because I'm feeling like I can't. The being dropped, I have had highs where there should be none....granted we haven't had money to buy the foods I should be eating, but I am doing the best I can. I take humalog before meals, Januemt twice a day (500mg) and Lantus at night. This was controling my numbers very well, with exercise and eating right. But I started at 161 this AM (usually run 90 - 130) and have gone up since. my pre dinner numbers were 190....okay so felt like I shouldn't eat, but did and took my humalog. Suppose the stress of seeing higher numbers and then not getting to eat until 2:00 didn't help. But what the heck, I know how to do this, any ideas. AND you can say "settle down, do what you know how to do....things will even out".
