Re [IP]: Nightime bolus and morning crash
Hi, Jan - Thanks for your post on the above subject. I did not reply on IP
because I didn't know if you would get it. I take my thyroid pill about the
same time each day, early AM or at lest within an hour or two of the early AM
routine. I always take it on an empty stomach I get tested every year too.
If my BG is too low, say at 3 AM, I first correct that and when recovered, say
2 or 3 hours later, I will take the thyroid med. There is no question of
changing medication; I need to buy the least expensive generic on the market.
What o you mean by "messed up"?
I have four basal rates. I have lowered the early ones since retiring, I
found that I am not as hungry as I used to. Since I have no insurance, I have
not seen my endo in about a year. Once or twice a year we communicate by
email and he does not charge me. He is not the type to micro-manage my
diabetes. He knows that I know what do do, usually. I check my A1C every
three months, the last being 6.7. Once a year we do the usual stuff: thyroid,
kidneys and others that he may suggest and report back to him. I buy the
tests online and go to a local lab to have blood drawn. This routine has been
working for four years. As long as the A1C is a relatively good range, we are
Thanks again, Liliana
By *messed up* I mean she has a sensitive system and couldn't even go to
church for several weeks and she was all discombobulated. She is not a PWD.
Was sick, etc. She did get straightened out after I had her talk to her
pharmer. My regular routine with my synthyroid is usually from 5:30 7:00 a.m
daily and wait an hour.
Lately I'm a mess! I got a Prolia shot that lasts 6 months for bone health,
then a week later an epidural with cortisone for my osteoarthritus in cervical
spine where I have a fractured C-6 and cannardlly hold my head up from pain.
I'm having a colonoscopy on Tuesday on an off day with no Dialysis. Oh, and I
fell in the house and bruised my side. I have no appetite for a few weeks now
and very anemic nor energy.
My A1c' usually runs 5.7-7.1 and my endo is not happy. I take 6-46-14 Tests
a day and he isn't happy. He wants me to write them all down. it aunt going to
happen! he can read then off my 2 meters. I have too much going if too do all
all that - after 64 years of this.
Thanks for responding.
