wow gramma -- that is pretty low to have your alarm set at -- especially considering it is part of your nightime waking function
agree you should look at a slightly higher default setting in the low 4's somewhere

all the best !!

Just something the same but different - retinopathy photos this morning so still mega blurred - 3 or 4 goes to get the left one cos the cataract was in the way! Said they both looked OK anyway which is excellent except its too early for the recent high BGs to be showing I suppose, will have to wait and see - BUT surely gotta help em decide to sort it SOON ?

Not sure about irregular heart beat.  Have we touched on that in this thread?

N, just an observation that three friends of the same age have developed heart problems this year! A bit scary!

Owww! - and thank you!

Bet it wasn't as heavy as that damned grill pan on my big toe though!  LOL

Has it swollen, is it red hot?

Very pleased to hear your news Sedge.  Good luck with physio.

Thought I'd broken something in my foot yesterday.  Was sitting on the side of the bed in my PJs pump in my lap, holding my iPad.  Pumpy slipped, I grabbed it before it was able to pull the cannula out and dropped the sharp corner of the iPad right onto the top of my foot.  A lot of swearing ensued - it was soooo painful.  Huge bruise today, but since I can bear weight on it I am guessing it's just bruised.

As far as I can see, it's a good thing that they are monitoring the PSA on a regular basis.  Julian's PSA was at the very top end of normal (in fact, I'd have said that for a man of his age a PSA of 4.9 should have been followed up) that was 3 years before he was diagnosed and he was not monitored meantime.  I was only by chance when he saw a dr about something in the same area that he got another test and was subsequently diagnosed and operated on.

Not sure about irregular heart beat.  Have we touched on that in this thread?

This is a repeat of my missing post.

In another thread I mentioned that a good friend had a high PSA and was awaiting a biopsy but there was a debate as there was concern about an undiagnosed heart condition. Anyway the biopsy went ahead and he was moving 'gingerly' for about two weeks. The results are clear but he is not out of the woods. They want to repeat the PSA blood test in three and six months, and then review the situation. Another friend of the same age is undergoing investigation as he gets an irregular heartbeat under stress, and has fainted on more than one occasion (inconvenient!).

I started thinking I was going a little mad after I posted and then could no longer find them although one did seem to reappear. That's life I suppose but it is not as irritating as some issues I have had with my bank's website!

Food, diet and weight management / Re: Skyr

Yoghourt cultures are used in making skyr but because a small amount of rennet is added, it is considered to be a cheese.

Consistency is like a thick smooth cottage cheese and it doesn't pour.

The vanilla one would make an ideal cheesecake topping.
