"I feel like I've watched you grow up" hah it's so true, he has been drawing my blood for years now. This is one of my favorite people to see even if it's for some not so fun stuff. Grateful for amazing people like him that make scary things not so scary.๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’‰

The tenacity with this boy astounds me and makes me so happy and proud to have him by my side. He does not give up until he does it right and I love that SO much about him. No matter what...no matter how long it takes...we will always work to complete whatever it is we start. Being a service dog team is about commitment, not just from you but also from your dog. It takes teamwork. There is no me and I in this...Sirius is not a slave. He gets to do things he finds fun and they are things that actually benefit me and my daily life. We both "work together" rather than one and the other. Service dogs become like another limb apart of you that you are learning everyday to make stronger and be better. #servicedogteam #tasktrained #complexregionalpainsyndrome #crps #reflexsympatheticdystrophy #rsd #mylegdoesthesloppyswish #chronicpain #chronicillness #eds #ehlersdanlossyndrome #hypoglycemia #standardpoodle #instagram #siriusservicedog #mobilityservicedog #mobilitydog #servicedogintraining #mobilityservicedogintraining #medicalalertdogintraining #medicalalertdog #servicedog #sdit #standardpoodleservicedog #poodlesofinstagram #poodle #futureservicedog

So....cat meowmy here. Mr Eliot gave us a bit of a scare today! He was due for a *glucose curve today, because its been a month since we did the last one. (*we prick the tip of his ear every 2 hrs to get the tiniest blood sample in order to get a read on his blood glucose levels over a 12 hr period) Ideally we want to see him around 250-300 right before each of his 2 shots (6 units/shot given 12 hrs apart) with a peak low between 80 and 120 (4-6 hrs after each shot).
Well today... His first test read 298. We were happy with that. But 2 1/2 hrs after his shot, his reading was 29!!!! That is dangerously low! We keep a bottle of Karo syrup on hand in case that ever happens. Today, we used it! Why do these things happen on Sunday??? I gave him 5 cc's orally and a bowl of Furrell's canned purina one. Weird thing was, he was acting fine....not wobbly or lethargic. He gobbled the food. It went up to 33 (15 mins after the 29). 1 hour later he was back up to 90. 2 hrs later...100. His most recent test...about 8 hrs after his shot, was 196.
What the heck is going on here????? I will call the emergency vets to ask what to do about his scheduled evening shot. I am reluctant to give him more insulin before he can see his vet tomorrow. What if we both had to work today? I don't even want to think about it! Any diabetic cat parents out there ever experience this? He's fine now. Eating, drinking,hanging out on the deck...his favorite thing, playing with his brother....normal, normal, normal. Right now I am just thankful we got through this episode without something horrible happening, but I know something is not right.๐Ÿ˜• #diabetickitty #diabeticcats #hypoglycemia #diabeticat

PS...I did do a control test on the glucometer to make sure it was reading accurately

๐ŸŒนType 1 affects everything. Your sleep, your mood, your workout, your meals, your travels, your work, your choices, and the list goes on. If you have Type 1 diabetes you know this number is SCARY; anything lower is scarier and even deadly. Last night I was reminded how serious managing this illness is 24/7. With lots of sacrifice, mindfulness, and hard work, I do have great control of my numbers, but last night my dinner dose was just a tad off and it resulted in this severe low. Thankfully these aren't a trend, nor something I frequently encounter but just a bump in this journey of managing a chronic illness. While this disease is with me daily and affects many aspects of my (your) life, it does NOT have the final say or get to push me into a fearful, anxious mindset. Will I (you) experience crazy lows emotionally, physically, spiritually, and mentally? Heck yes. BUT there is power in using every fear and turning it into an opportunity to transform not just your blood sugars but anything you want to pursue. Xoxo! โ“Whats YOUR scariest low? DM me if you desire better blood sugars/ less frequent highs and lows! Love hearing from each and every one of you โ™กโ™กโ™ก #typeone #type1diabetes #hypoglycemia #keepingyourbloodsugarshappy #diabetes

It's been really hard for me to find healthy and guilt-free snacks on the go since discovering I had hypoglycemia.
Luckily there's still awesome places like @madambakster where I can enjoy a piece of pie without refined sugar! .

Da willst du mal 'nen Dรถner essen nach erfolgreicher Aufnahme (@das_filmmagazin) und nach 21 Uhr. Und was passiert? Geplante Schlafenszeit verschiebt sich um ein paar Stunden nach hinten, weil der Kรถrper meint: Unterzuckerung. Eigentlich alles wie immer gemacht.

๐Ÿฆ site change day ๐Ÿจ woke up this morning at a 14.2 and noticed I ripped my site out during my sleep ๐Ÿค’ blood sugar is back to normal now and feeling better ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

#sconegate jam or cream first?! Anyway, only had half and last treat of the holiday โ˜€๏ธ#mfp #hypoglycemia #bloodsugar #healthyfood #healthyeating #lifestylechange #balanceddiet #healthymeals #macros #cooksmart #eatsmart #caloriecounting

Gotta applaud my #llmd office for having #glutenfree #dairyfree #refinedsugarfree and *coffee flavored* snacks available for those #hypoglycemia moments. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜…and thanks @kindbars for making options for those that can't tolerate sugar! #lymedisease #snack #instagramaddict #treatment #friday #warriorlife #fighton #recovery #momentinlyme #chronicillness #spoonie

Dr. Schmidt was down in Australia this week for a seminar with MediHerb. This is him holding a koala (we're pretty jealous). If you'd like to see him give a lecture on how to naturally control diabetes and hypoglycemia, call 734-302-7575 and reserve your spot! Or you can watch him live on YouTube. The lecture is on Thursday, July 27 at 7:00 p.m EST

Absent all week because I've been having the best holiday in Devon! Not been too bad food wise and have done LOADS of walking. Changing my weigh day to Sunday so we will see what the scales say in 2 days ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป#mfp #hypoglycemia #bloodsugar #healthyfood #healthyeating #lifestylechange #balanceddiet #healthymeals #macros #cooksmart #eatsmart #caloriecounting

There are definitely times that I'll eat something that I know isn't great for me, or will probably make my blood sugar go high. I try not to do it too regularly, but I'm not terribly worried about it because I know that with my Artificial Pancreas Treatments that I do weekly, it's what keeps me from developing complications from my diabetes. Occasional highs with my blood sugar are not a concern at all for me because I know that my organs are safe, and that I'm not going to develop any complications, because I do my treatments.

My love is ready for business! Pictured here is his bar haul to the office today. @epicbar + @primalkitchenfoods bars provide his afternoon boost minus the blood sugar crash. Plenty of protein from whole ingredients, no highly processed soy or whey and zero refined sugar. I got him off his daily @clifbar last year even before he went gluten free. It helped to explain they have more sugar than a Snickers - which completely blew his mind! Food marketed as healthy is meant to be healthy, right?! No more jittery hypoglycemic attacks, just straight business. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ #CGWW #notsponsored

Health authorities recommend to people with diabetes mellitus โ€“ type1 or type2, to identify their condition.
In case of accident, loss of knowledge or hypoglycemia , it is vital that paramedics know that you suffer from diabetes as soon as possible , to act accordingly. Hence the importance of a medical ID Tag.

Or in my case, going out for a hefty meal, miscalculating carbs, going low because you injected too much, being too full to drink orange juice but having to anyway for an hour because your sugars won't go up, and being sick because you're just so full and low.

#11 favorite low snack. I try to correct lows with apples or bananas, but if I have to pick my favorite snack, it is definitely Apekoppen, a vegetarian (I don't eat anything containing parts of dead animals including fish) friendly gummy with banana flavor. #low #hypoglycemia #apekoppen #eendiabetessquad #t1d #jdrfcc17 #deeljebetes #typeonediabetes

Not nice Diabetes! 2am and this is where we are with 6.75u on board. She forgot to cover a banana around midnight. Looks like she didn't need to cover it at all. Hands are shaking and she feels horrible. I loathe this disease ๐Ÿ˜ž#psychoglycemic #crazyforacure #t1dmom #t1d #weneedacure #hypoglycemia #notajoke #omnipod #dexcomg5

Um, no thank you blood sugar of 38. The feeling gah, no. I don't like highs either, but urgent lows are scary. I could not feel my face. Heart racing, shaking crazy and disorientated. I did gel, a handfull of Trolli's, and a bag of watermelon LOL. I am sitting now at 211..... ๐ŸŽข ride with diabetes. #typeonelookslikeme #t1d #hypoglycemia #cgm #dexcom #insulinpump #type1diabetes #diabadass
