Anneemai's Journal, 21 March 2013

Things have been up and down this week for me! My B12 deficiency has really kicked in and by the end of my working day I'm struggling to stay awake! Also not sure if I'm getting a cold or it is the one of the many side effects linked to my new diabetes medication!
At the moment I'm feeling tired and sick! Good news though is next week I get my B12 injections so my energy levels should go back up!
Other ongoing health issues playing up so lots of pain medication taken this week, but trying to stay positive although its a challenge!!!!!!!

What is your new medication Annee? My hubs has the same ups and downs with his meds, he's on one, he's off one, this one works but a bit too well so that his blood sugar drops by 40 points in..20 minutes! It's a nightmare! Stupid pancreas.

Glad to hear your positive through this. I know living in the UK diet info can be a bit different. I watch Food Hospital on cable. But food can change any health issue, from diabetes, to pain, and slow cancer as well. If interested I can give a link to an hour long radio show here in Minnesota that talks about the food connection. They are very good.

Hi Michellejean I would love the link to see if I can access it here. My medication that affects my B12 is metformin I'm on 4 500mg tablets twice a day. This leads to the B12 deficiency, I also have IBS so that doesn't help. I was on byetta (exanatide) twice a day but it wasn't doing its job so just changed onto a new injection which is once a day, this is the one with all the symptoms, including toothache which I find really weird! Also on gliclazide 1 tablet twice a day. Not been around much as had a few days of feeling poorly so not done much. But really going to try to get on here more! X

DH takes about 1500 metformin (750 twice a day) and is going to add another 500 in the evenings at some point this week. No vitamin deficiency though, strangely. He's on plain old insulin every night (no idea how many units) and then has a once a week of Bydurion. He takes a ton of other stuff but I don't know what of that is strictly diabetes.  
24 Mar 13 by member: CollyMP click on radio show and you can check archives or just listen to last show. they run about 45 minutes. They cover diabetes and IBS in past shows. and many of woman issues too. I really hope this helps, I love the show and it has helped me a lot.
