Welcome to the Type 2 Diabetes Virutal Support group. All questions, comments and discussions welcome. We'll start in about 2 minutes.

Good evening.

BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
Hi, Susie -- how's it going?

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:01:11 Eastern US
Susie (T-2) from 207.29.206.18
Overall, doing well BettyB. How are you?

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:03:00 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
Not too bad, thanks. Had a crazy couple of weeks -- vacation and then going to the meeting in orlando -- those things always make diabetes management a little more challenging!

Hi, everyone

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:04:27 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
Hi, Nancy. Welcome.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:05:52 Eastern US
Susie (T-2) from 207.29.206.18
Hi Nancy.
BettyB: I cut down on my Asthmacort, because I was feeling better (hadn't had any problems with the asthma) and I was pretty sick as a result. The problem: when I use the Asthmacort, I do get a temp spike in my bg. Dr. says that he would rather have me walking around with 180 bg and breathing....

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:07:02 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
That's a shame, Susie. Are you feeling better now? Also, refresh my memory on what diabetes meds you're taking.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:07:25 Eastern US
Nancy from 63.67.200.191
I went to a diabetic seminar a couple of weeks ago and the internist who was giving it said don't worry about postprandial numbers because they will go down, only fasting. Since those are usally the only numbers right now that are high for me I'm cutting out taking my blood sugars.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:08:31 Eastern US
Susie (T-2) from 207.29.206.18
I take Prandin with meals and Glucophage xr once a day.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:09:16 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
Does yourBG spike right after you take the asthmacort, Susie?

Daniel from 4.61.58.107
hi

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:10:18 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
I'm sorry to have to disagree with that view of postprandial numbers not being important. There are two very good reasons to pay attention to them.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:10:56 Eastern US
Daniel from 4.61.58.107
give it to us Betty :-)

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:11:19 Eastern US
Susie (T-2) from 207.29.206.18
Hi Daniel. How's the social worker bus in Fl. I was just promoted!
BettyB: I feel it about 2 hrs later. Sometimes wakes me up with that gnawing hungry feeling, that's why I cut it out.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:11:27 Eastern US
Daniel from 4.61.58.107
how you doin Susie? :-o

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:11:34 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
Hi Daniel - good to see you! Those reasons to pay attention to postprandials: 1) about 60% of your A1c depends on the postporandial numbers (most people are postpradnial a good twelve hours a day) and 2) postprandial blood sugars are much more highly associated with heart disease risk than fasting numbers.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:12:43 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
Susie, would it be possible to time the asthmacort differently -- perhapws so the spike coincides with the insulin spike you get from Prandin??

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:13:19 Eastern US
Daniel from 4.61.58.107
I hate it Susie :-( we had staffings all day and I feel like god . . deciding which parents will be TPRed :-( . . tell me bout you promotion! please define pradnial . . . sorry im late

Sorry for the jargon! POst prandial means after eating.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:15:43 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
I'm not really sure, Susie. Do you have set times to take the asthmacort? or is at as needed?

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:15:57 Eastern US
Susie (T-2) from 207.29.206.18
Daniel, I am now an "Administrator". Well, tomorrow after I sign my papers. I haven't had a case load in some time. I thought that I would miss the direct client, but it's okay.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:16:53 Eastern US
Daniel from 4.61.58.107
hire me

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:17:10 Eastern US
Susie (T-2) from 207.29.206.18
I need to take it sometime in the evening because I sometimes have an "attack" at night. I also use it in the a.m. It has kept me under control for some time. I was on Flovent, but that really made the bg soar.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:17:49 Eastern US
Susie (T-2) from 207.29.206.18
Daniel, I do not have any control over hirings. But if you come back to Philly.....

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:18:25 Eastern US

Susie . . . could we talk in the side room for a minute?

hat = hate)

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:19:53 Eastern US
Susie (T-2) from 207.29.206.18
Daniel, you're right. Let's talk about this later.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:20:08 Eastern US
Nancy from 63.67.200.191
Betty, how often do you take your blood sugar?

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:20:55 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
It sounds like you don't have a lot of flexibility in timing the asthmacort. But let me tell you what I was thinking and you can think about it. The asthmacort raises yur need for insulin a couple of hours after you take it. The only medicine you're taking that effects insulin levels is the Prandin. I just had a brainstorm that if you could take the asthmacort a couple of hours before you eat, the prandin you take with the meal might help minimize the blood glucose spike that comes from the asthma medicine... again, not sure how you'd do it, given the timing you mentioned.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:22:46 Eastern US
Susie (T-2) from 207.29.206.18
BettyB: that's interesting. I do take the Asthmascort a few hrs before breakfast (I take it at 5 a.m. and eat in the ofc about 7:15). I don't have the problem then. It is the night time dose. Perhaps I could take it with dinner. Thanks.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:22:48 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
Nancy, I test between three and six times a day, some before meals and some after -- more on days when I'm eating something new or different or if anything like stress or pain is going on that might raise my blood sugar.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:23:26 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
Susie, very cool! Let me know if it works.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:24:32 Eastern US
Daniel from 4.61.58.107
I have been having some strange inner pain lately :-(

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:25:17 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
:-( What a shame, Daniel. Any clues as to what's going on?

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:27:55 Eastern US
Daniel from 4.61.58.107
naw . . .but the doc is runnin some tests

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:27:55 Eastern US
Nancy from 63.67.200.191
Betty, I know what you mean about stress. I am getting a new boss and that is stress.

Good night everyone!!

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:29:10 Eastern US
Susie (T-2) from 207.29.206.18
BettyB: when you get those high bgs, what do you do? I wasn't sure what to do when I was woken out of a deep sleep, and feeling very uncomfortable. (Bg were as high as 290 at 2 a.m. and by 5 a.m. were down to 110).

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:29:15 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158

Hello

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:30:57 Eastern US
Susie (T-2) from 207.29.206.18
I meant midnight, not 2 a.m.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:31:24 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
Susie, your options for responding to high BG's vary with your treatment. In your case, neither the Glucophage or the Prandin is something you would tke specifically to respond to a high. Drinking more water might help you get rid of the extra sugar more quickly. And going for a walk might help (but probably not at2am!!). I think your best bet is to watch the patterns and keep working on ways to prevent the highs when possible.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:31:28 Eastern US
Susie (T-2) from 207.29.206.18
Hi Connie, how are you?

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:32:02 Eastern US

Connie(BC) (Type 1) from 209.53.87.121
I know Betty, been late getting home lately, missed the last chat altogether!
Was hoping my CDE was here tonight

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:33:32 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
High sugars, Connie? Sounds like you ought to be in a diabetes room! Oh yeah -- you are!! Life will do that to you sometimes, kiddo. Sorry about that.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:34:31 Eastern US
Connie(BC) (Type 1) from 209.53.87.121
LOL, had an infected toe! so I do have a reason, just hate fighting them!

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:34:35 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
No educators here tonight except Nina and me -- don't feel bad. I missed the last one too (the Type 1). I was on vacation and couldn't get an internet connection from the hotel.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:35:36 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
God, but isn't it better when you know where the darn things have come from!! LOL The ones I hate the worst are the "where in the hell did that come from" blood sugars! LOL

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:36:02 Eastern US

Connie(BC) (Type 1) from 209.53.87.121
I get those too Betty, only thing is usually if I bolus they go away, with this toe, they stay high!

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:37:12 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
Well, there's still a little time. Maybe she'll poke her head in before we;re done, Connie.

Heidyn (pumper) from 164.106.22.64
Hi

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:38:35 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
If they're REALLY high, it'll change your bolus ratio -- the infection makes yu insulin resistant and so do the high sugars. Where you might usually take 1 unit for every 3 mmol, when you're wick, it might take 1 for every 2 or something like that.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:38:45 Eastern US
Connie(BC) (Type 1) from 209.53.87.121
I see you were talking about highs and T 2, my friends dad is T 2, no meds, so I'm trying to teach him(no english) to test alot, but of course since his doc doesn't think it's nec. to send him to an endo, they think Korean/Chinese medicine will help!

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:38:54 Eastern US
Connie(BC) (Type 1) from 209.53.87.121
Hi Heidyn

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:39:38 Eastern US
Heidyn (pumper) from 164.106.22.64
Do type 2's have to watch their carbs,Betty?

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:39:42 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
Nancy, did you have a question about your own testing?

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:39:54 Eastern US
Connie(BC) (Type 1) from 209.53.87.121
I"m so bad, I always forget to change bolus ratios, I so seldom have infections, usually my body fights them and I go low!

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:39:59 Eastern US
Nancy from 63.67.200.191
I can answer that one, YES

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:40:00 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
OOPS -- there go my fingers again. That's when you're SICK, Connie, not "wick"!! LOL

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:40:36 Eastern US
Connie(BC) (Type 1) from 209.53.87.121
LOL, I'm used to our typing Betty

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:41:10 Eastern US
Connie(BC) (Type 1) from 209.53.87.121
I did have him testing 6 times a day, but now he's not testing much!

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:41:26 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
Yeah, Heidyn, type 2's use carb management in much the same way as type 1's -- exactly the same, in fact, if they take Humalog with meals.. But if they're not taking meal insulin, then they use carb counting to balance what they eat with however much insulin their body can make to cover a meal. A little more limiting than the optimal type 1/pumper scenario.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:42:40 Eastern US
Nancy from 63.67.200.191
Betty, I am really confused right now. When I compare my numbers to others they just don't seem that high, then I ask myself, why am I doing this? I was testing once a day, now much less than that so I was just trying to figure out what to do and when

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:43:01 Eastern US
Nina (Diabetes Educator) from 148.221.178.102
Betty, do you know any type 2 who uses oral hypoglucemic agents and humalog for prandial BG?

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:43:02 Eastern US
Connie(BC) (Type 1) from 209.53.87.121
I personally think type 2 has to be harder to deal with!

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:43:27 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
I'm a firm believer that people ought to test only when they'r going to do something with the number -- if there's something to learn, or to make a decision about food - insulin- exercise, to be safe before driving -- a real reason -- not just to ut numbers in a book.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:45:13 Eastern US
Connie(BC) (Type 1) from 209.53.87.121
I wanted her dad to test to find patterns, the Korean diet consists of a lot of complex carbs, lots of rice at each meal, lots of sugar in all the products!

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:45:34 Eastern US
Heidyn (pumper) from 164.106.22.64
Type 2 would be rough if you had to take hundreds of units of insulin a day,I think.Worse then type 1!

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:46:01 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
Connie - that's really nice to hear from someone with type 1!! Personally, I think they're both a royal pain in the butt -- just differnt kinds of thorns!

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:46:29 Eastern US
Connie(BC) (Type 1) from 209.53.87.121
I think T 2 is more restricting, especially if you DOn't have insulin to cover for you

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:47:44 Eastern US
Connie(BC) (Type 1) from 209.53.87.121
Betty, my mother brought me up to the letter of your book!! LOL Even before D! Had to accept it, and her dad died from T1, my dads' mum died from T2

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:48:05 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
My response to Nina's question about oral agents in combo with insulin fell into cyberspace!! Darn! The answer is Yes -- at our center we continue oral agents that adress insulin reisstance when insulin is started and the only meal insulin we recommend is a rapid-acting like Humalog -- so we have a lot of people on that combo.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:48:28 Eastern US
Connie(BC) (Type 1) from 209.53.87.121

Hi all

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:49:50 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
Type 2 can be more restricting as you guys have so wisely pointed out BUT type 1 can be such a tight rope -- rapid BG changes.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:50:05 Eastern US
Connie(BC) (Type 1) from 209.53.87.121
NAncy, why don't you test very often?

Hi Beth!

BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
Hi, Beth. Welcome. Connie, your mom was way before her time. Those views aren't all that common even now.

BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
Nancy, sorry!! I totally missed your question back a ways. Could you tell me when you're testing: fasting, before meals, after meals??

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:51:38 Eastern US
Connie(BC) (Type 1) from 209.53.87.121

Nina (Diabetes Educator) from 148.221.178.102
Thanks for your answer Betty, just the last question, would you use humalog or nateglinida (starlix) for postprandial hyperglycemia peaks?

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:52:05 Eastern US
Connie(BC) (Type 1) from 209.53.87.121
Nice Nancy! That's great!!

I test more often now than I used to

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:53:14 Eastern US
Connie(BC) (Type 1) from 209.53.87.121
I think if my friends dad stay away from the rice and complex carbs he'll be ok too!

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:53:19 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
Nina, it would depend on the patient> We're finding Starlix to be very effective for many patients, but if they don;t get a good response from Starlix, then right on to Humalog.

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:53:22 Eastern US
Nancy from 63.67.200.191
When I test it is usally after meals, 2 hours after, I still don't feel like I am diabetic and I think that is the main issue

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:54:32 Eastern US
Beth (IA) (Reann 16, dx'd 7/8, pumping) from 206.72.22.27
Nancy, how long agoo were you dx'd

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:54:45 Eastern US
Connie(BC) (Type 1) from 209.53.87.121
Are you managed by meal planning and excercise Nancy? Or do you take meds?

Wed Jul 25 2001 21:54:50 Eastern US
BettyB (Virtual Support Host) from 198.81.17.158
Rice can be a killer, allright. It used to be quite the hoot when I was doing a lot of training in southeast Asia -- between the rice and the fruit, the intke must have been 80% fast carbs -- hard to manage, especially for type 2 not on meal insulin.

Nancy, it looks like another one of my answers dropped out of sight -- I wanted you to consider that sometimes blood sugars in tatrget mean that the treatment is working, not that you don't have diabetes. We are seeing a lot of people new to type 2 diabetes who are having their blood sugars returned virtually to the normal range with Starlix. If you're always getting the same numbers, it's probably a good idea to cut back on testing a bit so you don't burn yourself out.
