I’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 don’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?

I’ve been stressed lately… so binge eating. This is what got me here. Some days I am ready to die. I just don’t want to die from diabetes

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 🤍 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.

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.

Do any of you suffer with anxiety too ? I have felt abit unwell in the last week . My eyes have a few times go blurry like I'm going to fate . Not sure if its to do with diabetes or anxiety. I'm trying to come off medication for a trapped nerve in my neck so it could be that.

Hi guys! Many of us are having problems replying to individual messages requesting help! Wisdo are working on this! A workaround that a few of us have found is to put a message on that chat asking the person to DM us as that part of the system seems to be fairly stable at present! Hope this helps!

Hi all I've had type 2 diabetes for over a year and recently my sugar level is low . I'm trying to lose weight and on medication to help the diabetes but my question is what do you eat that helps bring back to a normal sugar level range ? I've contacted my doctors for advice just waiting for their reply.

Hi everyone I have berm struggling with my sugar levels being too low . I have had type 2 for over a year and in the last 2 months my sugars are low . Its cause my eyes to go blurry. I have seen a diabetic nurse she says it's cause my sugar levels was so high before say about 100 something and it's gone down to 50 as I'm losing weight. I'm doing slimming world it's like weight watchers. I have lost nearly 1 and a half stone in 11 weeks . I'm on medication for diabetes and I think one of them is causing me problems. I have problems with my eyes called floaters too . I have to wait for 8 weeks before I can get new glasses/ eyes tested. I was ill yesterday at work . It started with a headache then I felt dizzy. I luckily had something sweet to eat and drink and tested myself afterwards but still was low so I had to go home . Last night while sleeping I was feeling nauseous and tested again I was lower than before so had to eat some plain biscuits/cookies . I'm still not great now with the dizziness. Don't think its helped I slept for 4 hours last night. I have today as a day off so that helps. Cause how much sugar was inside me when I first got diabetes my body trying to cope.
