A couple of weeks ago, I wrote an article about getting my diabetes and diet under control. As I said, I had seen some very nice results as far as my blood glucose readings went. They were pretty close to normal, which made me quite happy.
Well, that was a one day more than 2 weeks ago when I wrote that, and I am happy to say that my readings are holding. My diet is still under control, and I am feeling very good. Amazing what a little more exercise and living a reasonable lifestyle will do for you!
When my diabetes was out of control, I had a big problem with infections. Almost any wound that I got, be it a paper cut, or even a scratch would most likely become infected. For years, there was really no time that I didn’t have some sort of infection somewhere on my body. It’s an uncomfortable way to live. I am happy to say that for several weeks I have experienced no infections of any kind, and that is a good feeling. Having a badly infected sore on your body is uncomfortable, to say the least. Not having to worry about that is a big bonus for me.
I have gotten where I eat fish or some kind of seafood at least 4 or 5 times per week, and I am enjoying it. Fish is good for your body, and you can have a nice meal without having your blood sugar go wild. Of course, you can’t eat something like sweet and sour fish or anything loaded with sugar like that, but a nice piece of grilled fish, or even a fried piece of fish if you use the right kind of oil and keep it to a minimal amount is a nice meal, and healthy too.
I’ve also lost a few more pounds over the past few weeks as well. I am not altering my diet to lose weight, but that is a nice side benefit. I am modifying my diet to keep my blood glucose in reasonable control. And, it’s working!
