Diabetes and Victoza


My Diabetes is still out of control. Went on Victoza (daily injection) and it dropped way too low and took my appetite away and family had to force me to eat. After a week and a half doctor said to stop it and go back on my oral meds and try them again. Sugar is higher now and I can eat again.

Back on Klonopin, Trilofon (mood stabilizer) and Paxil.

Diabetes numbers coming down, breakfast was too sweet, didn’t eat it all!


Well I am amazed. I have asked God to help me with my diabetes and my numbers which are never below 250 even fasting, were 122 this morning. Breakfast was too sweet. I actually left half of it on the plate. I couldn’t stand the sweet.

One of the ways I am aiming to fix in myself is this craving for sweets. Now I did have a soda though. One step at a time.

Fibro and Bacon…a big no-no.


It seems that bacon being high in fat affects the joints and muscles of those of us with Fibromyalgia. We shouldn’t have bacon or at least look for fat – free turkey bacon.

Bacon is one of my favorite foods and here it could be adding to my pain. Say it ain’t so!

Fibromyalgia and Bacon


Bacon lovers I have bad news. I just found out that bacon is bad for Fibromyalgia. It increases inflammation.

If you can’t go without bacon, another suggestion is turkey bacon. It is half the fat of pork bacon.
