Jackie's Forget Me Nots

BLOG NEWS

I published six blog posts this past week, which was surprising since I didn’t feel like blogging much at all. Most of them were rough drafts.

HEALTH NEWS

My blood tests results showed I had high blood sugar levels which weren’t surprising since I already know I’m diabetic, but I refuse to take medication like metformin and insulin. Instead, I have been trying to control my blood sugars by not eating anything with sugar, sucrose/glucose or corn syrup, etc….It’s not easy, but I made it through this week as I strive toward better health. I’ve also been on youtube a lot listening to informative videos about what I can do to help lower my blood sugar and blood pressure. Intermittent Fasting is recommended as well as reducing refined carbs and increasing fiber. Chromium and Magnesium supplements are useful for stabilizing blood sugars also. Losing 10 lbs and exercise helps, so I was sold when I heard Markus Rothkranz talk about his new product that helps burn fat and increase energy. It’s called Trim Force

FOOD AND RECIPES

I enjoyed some of these recipe dishes …click the name for method.(some of my pics are blurry and may not look appetizing, but it was good)

BOOK NEWS

I finished reading book one and two of the Throne of Glass series which weren’t bad, but I’m still reading Heir of Fire and it’s taking Celaena Sardothian far too long to work her fae magic to a level she can control, and frankly I’m annoyed with her. Still, I ordered the 4th book Queen of Shadows, so I will be able to finish this series hopefully by the end of this year. I’m excited 🙂

What’s new on my shelf
Hell House
Revival by Stephen King

    I didn’t get past the diabetes thing in your post. I assume – perhaps incorrectly, that in sharing it it is something you are open about. Do you test regularly? Are you type 1 or type 2? I grew up with a Type 1 diabetic, and it can serious cause organ damage if it is untreated and high or low sugar can cause shock, coma or death.

    Insulin isn’t a “drug” so much as it is a replacement hormone that your body normally has. In Type 1 the body stops producing it and in Type 2 while it can stop producing it, the system can break in other ways, like resistance.

    Fortunately we know now that controlling weight can be an effective tool in controlling type 2 diabetes.

    I respect your right to treat or not treat with western medicine, or any medicine, Not treating can have serious consequences. You obviously read a lot on health, but there is a lot of misinformation out there; especially on the internet.

    I really hope you will be careful and if you opt to self-regulate and you test your blood sugar levels yourself on a regular basis.

      I’m type 2 and yes I am aware of what diabetes is and It’s not incurable however. Diabetes is a dietary disease and doctors do not learn the value of good nutrition but are taught to medicate unfortunately. There is bad information everywhere you go , most of it are lies .
