I have enjoyed a certain relaxed muscularity.Coincidentally....I have started in the last few months to get this sudden burning pain at the underneath of my forefoot in between the wee toe and the toe beside.....lasts for about 10 seconds then goes.....but can appear at anytime.
I was putting it down to the sciatica I have as I feel a pain down from my bum right down to outside of my leg.
Could this be go
Don't wanna be obnoxious Steve....but are you a fat bastid ? 31lbs !!!!
Was it a 12hr fasted test again? Good news its back to normal. The body is great at sorting itself out once you correct the fuel inbalance from bad diet. Did they stop your Metformin?Attended 1st diabetic review yesterday afternoon. Frustratingly, I have relatively little to offer to support the original thrust of this thread. My condition is under control, with blood glucose well into 'normal'. In other words, with these numbers coming off the street, I wouldn't be talking to the nurse.
So, onward we go. Incidentally, the NHS is a beaut. As well as the regular tests and reviews, I'm now going for retinal scanning, foot exams by nubile pod-nurses, free prescriptions, and a pneumonia jab. I was hoping for a blue parking pass, but I might have to depend on the ankle for that one. In time, dear friends. In time.
Yes - fasted test again. I have another in April, because they test a fair bit in the early stages after diagnosis.Was it a 12hr fasted test again? Good news its back to normal. The body is great at sorting itself out once you correct the fuel inbalance from bad diet. Did they stop your Metformin?
Are they testing your blood for vitamin levels as well as blood glucose? I think its B12 which Metformin knocks your ability to absorb, and its quite an important one so make sure you're getting plenty / supplementing if necessary.Yes - fasted test again.

They are maintaining Metformin now, but will review in April. Could reduce then - but they recommend that maybe going to 1 pill a day still has cardio vascular benefits that are worth hanging onto. No side effects for me, so why not?
Any actual stats associated with this Bazza?I have a doctor review next month for my ongoing Omeprazole medication. Probably about time, I've been taking it for several years since I was first prescribed.
I'd really like to stop taking it, as I don't really like the idea of long term medication. But I have independently tried on a couple of occasions to stop taking it - and both times the issue I have returned pretty quickly.
That issue is some sort of muscular spasm in my throat which makes it close up completely when eating. Apparently it's caused by reflux - even though it is only very rarely accompanied by heartburn.
Excellent progress, have you decided on a target you're aiming for?On Friday I go to have a retinal scan - it will involve eye drops and an afternoon off driving and using a PC monitor. Bliss. It'll probably be torture.
Otherwise, I've had a holiday, and done a bit of walking. I've lost 4 inches off my waist, and have had to buy new trousers. Total weight lost = 2 stone 10 lbs.
I can now see 'little stevie' when I'm washing him as fast as I like, in the shower
Don't worry - it can be a bit uncomfortable and your vision will be pretty bad for an hour or two but in my experience it is way less debilitating than a vitrectomy and subsequent cataract operation.On Friday I go to have a retinal scan - it will involve eye drops and an afternoon off driving and using a PC monitor.

I do miss beer. Its my birthday soon, me and a couple of mates are going to Glasgow for a night out so I'll be sure to sink a few then. Looking forward to it, as long as we don't all come down with coronavirus first.I have a daily intake of <1900 - but rarely get to that level. I can have plenty of nice things, you just can't have lots of them all the time. I'm not bearing down on the carbs as much, as I like a porridge sometimes. Bread went out the window at first, but it's there every now and then now. Beer has vanished. Wine is nice as a treat.
My right hand is strangely calloused.
