Ignore htat kind of amount. We don't look for perfection or zero carbs.
Don't get obscessed, just live with it.

Hi Wendy,

I had originally thought they were 5 g per teaspoon. The bad labeling
laws means that under 1 carb, means they can say zero. That is what
I thought was behind the extra tiny 1/8 teaspoon. I had presumed that
it was 0.9 g per 1/8 tsp. I was planning on using 1 full tsp in
one of my concoctions. Those extra four carbs will be replaced with
blueberries.

I am getting close to drug free. As of last week I jumped down
from 500 mg Met twice a day, to 250 mg (pill cutter) twice a
day. Originally I was on 1000 mg twice a day. Each time I have
dropped, my morning fasting BG is slightly lower. My A1c,
which is a sloppy test, dropped too. Yipee!

By drug free (I hate drugs), I do not mean medicine free. I use
traditional medicine. I am 15 carbs max per meal, 60 max per day.
Maybe when I hit drug free for half a year or so, I will get
brave, bump up to 20 carbs per meal, test a lot, and see how I do.

Thank you for the pep talk!

Glad you are getting good control, but why rush to get off the Metformin
unless it bothers your stomach, in which case the extended release works
for many of us. I have beenon it now for over 17 years with no problems
adn a little more ability to have variety in my food, particulrly in fruit
which i do love. You arae on the least problematic drug for
diabetes and they keep finding good things about this drug whihc, as you
know is a generic for a along time, so new good things bout it are not
beign pursued my big Pharma so I feel they can be trusted more.

Don't let some macho feeling make yo thin it is somehow more virtuous or
healthier to be totally off this particular drug. It does not make yo
better than thoses who use it or other drugs.

The trips down the hall are annoying to say the least. The 250's I
am on now, have cut way back on that problem.

Met is probably the only Diabetes drug that will not end its life cycle
in a class action suit. And, at $10.00 for three months supply, no one
is trying to pull something over on us. This is reassuring. The
Traditional Medicine I am taking is more expensive.

Also, bear in mind, even if I eventually become drug free, I will
not be medicine free.

Don't let some macho feeling make yo thin it is somehow more virtuous or
healthier to be totally off this particular drug. It does not make yo
better than thoses who use it or other drugs.


Macho and virtue have nothing to do with it. I just hate drugs.
I do use a lot of Traditional Medicine.

If I have given any impression that I am better than anyone else
because I am trying to go drug free, please forgive me. Drugs are
sometimes necessary. I am only talking about myself and my personal
preferences.

I had horrid ill effects from metformin that have never completely gone
away, particularly the hypokalemia and spasms.

Most folks I know who quit it are much less tired, achey and find little
difference in their blood glucose levels, except fasting.


Achey? I'm not usually achey. I do have Fibromyalgia but my symptoms began
prior to taking Metformin.

All drugs have good and bad effects, variable by person. If one is
managing without one, it's better to get rid of it and let your liver,
kidneys and adrenals rest and heal.

Now, back to food!

And please don't forget exercise. Get a good sweat going before dinner,

An (another) excuse to go fishing? Why, why, BILLY SAID SO!

I actually hate exercise. I rode a stationary bike once and
thought I'd died and gone to hell. But, you put a fishing pole
in my hand, point me in the direction out the trout, and I
will crawl over rocks, hike uphill both ways, etc..

I try to get out two to three times a week. Sometimes,
only for a half hour after I eat my bag lunch. Sometimes
while I wait for a customer appointment (no I don't smell
of fish). The rest of my exercise would be picking weeds
out of my garden.

I tried jogging around my back yard right out of bed in the
morning. Measured before and after. The exercise jumped
my BG up by about 60 points. Scary. My GP said that
that happens with some folks, so just don't exercise for a
while, at least till some time after you have eaten.
(So eat breakfast before going fishing.)

So, I guess I will just have to go fishing more.

Caught two Lock Levens (Scottish Brown Trout) out of the
local stream on Thursday. I let them go to sulk a bit
till I ruin their dinner again next week. (Trout should always
be aware of free food.) There is so much fishing pressure
where I went that I am surprised there were any fish
in half a mile either direction. Not that I am bragging.
Okay, I am bragging a little bit.

I must go fishing more. As previously stated, Billy said so.
(Okay, maybe not his "exact" words.)

Exercise, where does fishing intersect with exercise? Is this another
Wade vs. Row controversy? Or do you just sit?

In the morning? I was thinking about exercise just before eating.
Exercise before breakfast may have given you a glycogen dump, if I can
say that, and raised your b.g.

I usually exercise just before dinner. Works like a charm. Idiopathic
perhaps.

Hi Billy,

You are thinking of a guy sitting on his butt drinking
beer. I fish with flies (although, not the annoying long
fly pole). I am constantly walking (cardio) and working
the water with casts and fancy retrieves (upper body).
It is a moderate, low impact work out.

Just watch any fly fisherman doing his thing. Most won't
even drink while fishing because they 1) don't have enough
hands and 2) it throws off their concentration. There is a lot
of mental activity trying to get inside the trout's head too.
The thinking never stops.

You should see the "neurotic minnow" retrieve I do. I
put on quite a show for the guys. Takes both hands and
is a lot of work. I have successfully interrupted several
trout's dinners with this technique.

I was new at it.

And, the funny thing is my BG goes down all day long
after the initial morning surge (overly helpful liver),
whether I eat or not.

Fishing before dinner sounds good!

I wouldn't think that it does. My BIL sometimes puts on hip waders and goes
into the water. But that's still not really exercise in my book.

It can do it any time of the day. For that reason, my Endo. told me to stop
doing it. At one point, it would lower my BG. But then it went the other
way.

Could be.
