Bottom line at the time of covid. Sugars above 10mmol/l is DANGEROUS. That means to say if you generally have sugars above 10 when you check YOU WANT TO CHANGE THIS.
Sugars above 10 generally (regardless of type) is a danger red flag to the bull of COVID.
Especially in south africa we seem to have been lulled into a sense of “well we are going to be ok”, somehow because we prayed on sunday God is going to “love” us more??????
People, mense, sorry. Sor, it’s coming.
So what can you do as a diabetic? You can get control – aim for sugars between 4-8. Low sugars also have poorer outcomes. What does poorer outcomes mean? Part of poorer outcomes is death. 😦
1.) Eat healthily – cut the carbs
2.) Eat locally sourced plant based diet in the main – see Mnandi 🙂 cookbook
3.) make sure you are on OPTIMAL MEDS 🙂
4.) monitor your sugars a bit more than you normally would
5.) If you are UNCONTROLLED don’t go back to work please and also not to the mall please
Always available to help with this process
6.) Also I have seen a LOT more depression lately – check your mental health – ones body is : mind, body , spirit and all must be healthy to fight a virus/bug/bad time 🙂
7.) smile and be nice – be cause YOU can people 🙂
