Re: Newly Diagnosed Diabetics, I thought of a tool that might help us....

In Health & Fitness 1423192908.993

Deal A Meal and the Meal Mover are basically the same thing...one uses cards, one uses windows. I've used both in the past to lose weight prior to being diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. They are good for watching calorie count and learning portion size. For good diabetes control you also need to add in carb counting and you need to use your meter to discover how many carbs per meal your body can handle (This will vary from person to person.) and which foods spike your blood sugar. When I was first diagnosed and discovered that watching carbs was the key to control (No thanks to the educator... Continue Reading

Re: Smartphone advice... Samsung vs LG

In Electronics Talk 1420253182.137

My last 4 phones have been LG. Everyone else in my family has an iPhone, and I spent over a month trying to decide between the iPhone 6 and the LG G3. I finally went with the G3 and I love it. I'm a light to moderate phone user, and the G3 is lasting me 1.5 to 2 days on a charge. I have no experience with Samsung, but no problems with the LG's. Continue Reading

He supposedly sold his company; maybe there's some kind of legal problem? So many of our favorites have sold to the Chinese, only to have things change so severely that the product is no longer viable. He had a show in August where he premiered his white bronze pieces.

Re: Lost My Crown Eating a Cherry Sour Ball - My Dentist is Booked

In Health & Fitness 1403629718.92

I've had a crown re-cemented a couple of times. I try not to chew with it now so it will stay in - it's toward the front of my mouth so a little easier to avoid while chewing. I found the Dentemp O.S. in my grocery store for about $1.99 and purchased it to have on hand and when I go on vacation. I haven't had to use it yet, but it seems a fairly easy temporary fix.

On 5/31/2014 violann said: I got a copy of my last testing yesterday, and my a1c was 5 and FBS was 80. These are my best scores in years and years. Very happy. Congratulations! I went for labs yesterday, as I have a DR appointment next week. My FBG when I got out of bed was 73, and when I got home from the lab, before I ate, I took it again and it was 81, so it will be interesting to see what number the lab gets. Continue Reading

On 5/30/2014 namealreadytaken said: Any of you who are not medical doctors, please quit giving out medical advice, like telling others their blood sugar is too high or too low, the HgbA1c is not right, that they should not take cholesterol medication, that they should quit taking their potassium. Lipid-lowering drugs can be the only protection some heart patients have. I think doctors know more about the patient's condition than forum members. That is what doctors are for, to treat the patients. Please quit giving out, what could be, life-threatening/life-or-death advice. Potassium is a neces... Continue Reading


Re: Diabetics A1C goal??

emmiesmom, You need to ask about lite salt and other substitutes that include potassium if you are also taking a supplement, especially if your diet also includes potassium rich foods. It may not be a problem for you, but it's best to ask. Too much potassium can cause heart issues. Continue Reading
