Hi Collin J the information and the encouragement is very good and so is the genuine friendships you will make. I miss a lot of meetings because of other commitments I have, but itโ€™s the best group you can find.

Iโ€™ve just started taking my glucose level daily. And I am having a very hard time getting any blood to come out of my fingers. Is there some Chyna chips anybody can give me on how to do this?

Drink a lot of water for one. I take my blood from my arm. I have the kind of meter that's me do that, and I get the same results.

Hey everyone welcome to this group. Since I notice things have been a little quiet recently, why donโ€™t we start by checking in with each other regarding our health. How are you all doing? How have you been coping with the holidays upon us, while trying to stay healthy and follow dietary suggestions from your doctors?

What i do during my stressful days, is turn on my favorite music and just sit and listen and meditate. Most times I also do a Pipe ceremony. By my praying for others I relieve my stress.

I see a lot of us here because a loved one is struggling with diabetes so I just wanted to share these quick tips I found that are very helpful when supporting someone through a chronic illness ๐Ÿค What is the hardest part about watching them go through this journey? I remember my grandmother was an absolute love of food and she was so spirited and full of life, but unfortunately she had a lot of restrictions due to diabetes so we had to say no to her wishes often. That was quite difficult.

I've been a type 2 diabetic since last year in May. I've been struggling with it recently as my blood tests say its very high . I'm taking metformin extended release twice a day . I've started taking Dapagliflozin Since yesterday. I've been struggling with high blood pressure, bleeding gums and my periods too . I've recently had a blood test for my liver , sugar level , thyroid and kidney and had a ultra sound for my liver . Got to have a ultra sound for my thyroid too . What's everyone's else story about diabetes?

Been diabetic for over 40 years now, and have gone through everything you are. But now I am on the metformin once a day, Ozempic once a week, and two other insulins, one is once a day, the other is sliding scale 3 times a. I've gotten my A1c down, and everything else looks great. Plus I lost weight since on the Ozempic. Keep working with your doctor, but also be an advocate for yourself, and together you can find the right solution for you.
