Just a quick blurb here to let you know what we’ve been up to. First of all, Lily is still diabetic…okay, you already knew that right? Secondly, we have been trying out a new “thing” I had heard about a while back via Sally Roman. On her website, she talks about her sons taking baking soda (in drinks) before bed time. This balances the pH and also helps diabetics stop the ‘dawn phenomenon’. So we thought we’d give it a go. But since the taste of baking soda, no matter how diluted, makes us sick (literally), I went to the health food store and picked up some empty capsules and made my own pills. I got size 0 capsules and I give her two to three before bed (depending on how high her BG is at that time). The other night, Lily ate dinner and forgot to take her insulin (Whoops!)….when we got home to check, her BG was 400. After having a heart attack myself, then wiping her tears of frustration away, she took her novolog, lantus, and three capsules of baking soda. She woke up at 126! Since then, we’ve been taking the pills in the morning, at dinner and bed time. It helps so much. I’m really looking forward to seeing her next A1C. Her last one was 7.4….too high for my liking, but the same as the one before it, so atleast it hasn’t gone up.
I’m going to see if I can get the pills online instead of making my own. Any suggestions?
Well, aside from that, life is pretty hectic. Between homeschooling one teen and one in highschool, and a husband who works all the time, I feel like I need to sleep for a week! Anyway, just praying for Summer to come soon.
I hope you all are doing well! Talk to you soon!!
