New Year’s Warning!

I mentioned a few day ago that I was considering the possibilities of doing a few health related posts. The video included in this post has me changing my dithering. I am now definitely going to talk about health, mine and anyone’s who cares about what they chuck into their bodies.

OK, back to my story. A few months ago I went along to the Diabetic Clinic at one of the Dublin hospitals. I came away from that “routine” visit rather startled. My blood sugar levels were all wrong! However, the doctor’s words rather miffed me!

“You can see the trend… each year your numbers have been creeping higher and now your body can’t cope any longer. I’ll have to increase your medication. Take one of these additional tablets with what you are already taking and if your self-test numbers are not in the normal range within a week, then double-up and keep going like that!”

So began my quest for information. How could I make a difference for myself? All I say now is that I was lucky to stumble upon some truths all by chance. I can’t remember if it was a Facebook post or me doing what I do best… internet research. I will drag out the story so, for now, please join me in viewing this video. The 18 odd minutes you choose to invest may well turn out to be one of the best investments of your life. Yes, your life and the lives of all around you!

Taking my own blood sugar numbers... in range, if maybe a tad high!

Take it from a long-term Type 2 diabetic who faced other health issues last year… you can make a difference!

I’ll continue with this series later in the week. In time, I’ll also share links to sites and publications I have found in my many months of research!

PS – Yes!! Those are my numbers… yesterday morning’s reading. I’ll expand on the topic as I go along.

NOTE: I will document all the information I share on a page I have titled Our Health. In this way you’ll be able to access the information easily.

    Dankie, ek het die video vir my seun gepos. Ek het die hele vakansie om vir hom gepreek oor suiker – Coca-Cola om presies te wees.

    An excellent warning. I have forwarded this to two friends who are type 2 and I thank you for the helpful advice on their behalf 😊. Lest I forget – may I wish you and yours a 2017 filled with joy and laughter, peace and contentment and most of all overflowing with love ❤️

      You and yours have a great year!! I envy you!
      May one of my 2017 wishes come true… seeing France this year will be great!
      Another of my wishes would be to help folk understand better.
      I am collecting all the info on a “Our Health” page. In a few day’s time it will become easy to reference all the information I have gathered on that page!
      I’ve been a T2 for almost ten years… if only the medical crowd had told me some of the things I’ve had to learn the hard way I would have been in a much better place!
      Hopefully, by sharing my experiences and what I’ve learned, I can help others!!!! 😉

        France beckons well! Amongst other diabetic friends, one of my cronies from school lost his leg two months before Christmas. If only he had been warned years ago that his lifestyle would pay him back so cruelly I know he would have taken precautions. It is time for people to be educated and you will be part of this essential process, I know. Bon courage, kind sire.

    Excellent video – I have seen a couple of similar clips over the past few years. I have tried to removed as much added sugar from my diet for the last couple of years and have noticed health benefits. Refined carbs I am still working on!!!!

      Thanks for your comment! I will be featuring a few more videos in the coming weeks.
      I think you are really well placed to go LCHF – you produce much of your own food, I wish I could!
      I have only done one very basic thing… I have CUT CARBS, the very obvious ones… the GPS rule, grains, potato and sugar! I’ll share more later!
