5 entries from srah blah blah tagged with 'insulin resistance':


I told everyone at work yesterday that I called in sick yesterday morning because I baked cookies on Sunday night and sampled my wares a little too much. This is the truth, but it is not the whole truth. As a result of my late-night sugar binging, my blood sugar dropped during the night and I woke up a zombie. Normally when I wake up with low-blood-sugar-zombie syndrome, I just eat some breakfast, take my pills and get on with my morning (or I assume I have the flu because I'm stupid and I forget sometimes that I am now...

Rollin' down the street, smoking indo, sippin' on gin and juice

Am I totally insane to suspect that a Cranberry & Raspberry 100% Juice with 34g of sugar per 8oz. might be better for me than a Cran•Raspberry® Cranberry Raspberry Juice Drink with 30g of sugar per 8oz.? I bought a bottle of the 100% Juice because I thought it would be better for me, being more natural and all. Then when I got home and actually looked at the labels, I found out it had more sugar. However, the first two ingredients on the Cran•Raspberry® drink are water and corn syrup, so I'm thinking that despite the amount of sugar,...

A slight tetch of insulin-resistance denial

You know what I don't particularly like? Butterfingers. You know what else I don't particularly like? Peanut butter. You know what is totally awesomely awesome? Butterfingers "creme" eggs, made of a hollow chocolate egg filled with a mixture of peanut butter and little bitsy bits of Butterfingers. Quick! Go out and buy them if there are any left! They are probably on sale! Go now! Quickly! Someone will take your Butterfingers creme eggs and then you won't get any and then you'll be sorry but don't come crying to me because I told you to hurry, foo'! Of course, this...

So anyway, this all sucks

I had a doctor's appointment yesterday wherein I learned that I am, it would appear, a fat old woman trapped in a tiny young body. As she diagnosed me with PCOS and some glucose intolerance (both related to the diabetes that runs in my family), she kept telling me how unusual it was for me to have these problems because they're usually found in obese people who are older than me and "YOU'RE ONLY 25! AND YOU WEIGH 111 POUNDS¹!" Yeah, that doesn't really make me feel any better. I was told for years that the way to avoid diabetes-related...

Our second and third place contestants will receive... Scooby Doo band-aids!

This morning, I took the Glucose Challenge and I won! At least... I think I won. They're going to let me know. I guess they have to wait for the voting public to weigh in. Actually, come to think of it, I don't remember seeing any of the other contestants. Or any cameras. This is the worst reality show ever! Well, that ate two hours out of my life. Actually, it ate a lot more, if you count all the time I spent thinking about food when I was supposed to be fasting 10-12 hours before the test. And if...
