The chart above is not the PQRS of an EKG, it’s a blood glucose spike, followed with a brief hypoglycemic episode.
Both events were asymptomatic – I had no idea they happened until I checked continuous glucose monitor readings later.
What must have happened is the diet soda I ordered at our favorite beer garden was delivered as a sugar sweetened version.
I could just imagine the insulin spike that must have been created this one time, and yet, for most Americans, this is happening every day, multiple times a day, and they don’t know it. Experiments with Continuous Glucose Monitors show it:
And national numbers do as well, the fasting blood glucose level of Americans has been rising:
As has our weight. The two are probably related.
As I mentioned in part 7 of this series, for a person without known diabetes/prediabetes who is fat adapted (via a low-carbohydrate, healthy fat, or #LCHF diet), the response to a carbohydrate load may be different than a person who is carbohydrate adapted or continually seeing a massive deluge of carbohydrates and/or processed foods.
In a person who is not diabetic and specifically not type 1 diabetic and therefore produces insulin, this is not as dangerous as it would be for someone who does not produce insulin.
As has been shown by @DikemanDave – keeping carbohydrate intake managed overall gives a better result.
Success in avoiding diabetic complications has a very large part to do with identification, admission and subsequent removal of the glucose foods – grain, starch, sugar and froot – as they are the most potent culprit in rollercoaster, elevated blood glucose. pic.twitter.com/UQT5j4jnX9
If accepted into the standard, users of nearly every computing device in the world will be able to share the transgender pride flag symbol in communications, alongside the rainbow pride flag symbol, which has been in the standard for some time.
With thanks to the global team of amazing people and tech wizards that helped get us here, and ultimately to a world learning to <3 better.
A simple flag means so much to myself and my community… to make [people] feel that there’s a community outside of wherever they are that are there for them,” she says. “It’s a nice way to send a message that you’re visible. I’m visible. Not only that we’re visible in this space, but we’re visible everywhere.” – Bianca Humady Rey, Chair, Capital TransPride,FastCompany Magazine, April 5, 2019

I took the photos below knowing that we’ll eventually be joined by physicians and nurses in every health system in this room, and then the room won’t be big enough. It’s just a matter of time.Ted Eytan, MD, May, 2013
And, we will be joined by nurses and physicians in many health systems, in one of the most elegant spaces today in Washington, DC, bar none.

This feature of the space blew me away:
This is the standard signage in the space; they are not temporary, like the signs we are used to (these, from 2013 Capital TransPride):

I’m Going, for the 7th Time
I’m going and participating, for the 7th time, to celebrate multiple generations of people enjoying life as their authentic selves, and to honor those who were prevented from joining us because their journeys were ended prematurely.
The future has to start somewhere, and it’s usually here.
Thank you for publishing my photo @GayTimesMag, and for the great news that London will have its first ever Trans Pride.
For the first time ever, the UK’s capital city will hold a day of celebration for trans, non-binary, intersex, and gender non-conforming individuals – as well as their family, friends and allies – in Hackney on Saturday 17 September, 2019.
The photograph was taken in Washington, DC USA (of course), where Capital TransPride (@DCTransPride365) is over a decade old, and will happen this year on May 18, 2019. We invite our UK colleagues to join of course, and glad we could provide inspiration for the future 🙂 .
