    it was 90.
    is that good or bad?

    and on another note....

    the life of a hardcore musician sucks.
    it's not glamorous at all.
    I have no kids
    or no wife anymore.
    I will die alone.
    think about that for awhile.
    ask yourself if it's worth it.

    Dunno, that really would be best for an MD to tell you, they need the overall picture of your body stats to determine.

    90 is okay. It's normal. Sorry, former nurse here, who is also diabetic. If you are skipping meals, that isn't good, but I wish mine would stay at 90. I eat it goes up, and I have to take insulin, but when I hit 90, I also have to eat because I'm also hypoglycemic, so I can't let it go much lower than that, but for a non diabetic, 90 is pretty good.

    question #2:
    what do you know about diabetes?
    (this relates to my previous question)

    I use the Bruce Lee method.
    when I'm hungry, I eat.
    if I ain't hungry, I don't eat.

    not much. my grandma at 89 was just diagnosed with it. but she doesn't have to take insulin.
    I'm changing her diet to reverse it.
    it's hard to eat proper nowadays with all the crap they put in the food.
    but I know how.....

    I guess it’s only glamorous to the ones that have made it super big time. Not to say they didn’t go through some shady times to get to where they got, but I guess compared to what they went through to get on top, the life they have now would make it glamorous.

    Normal blood glucose levels are between 4.0–7.8mmol/L

    Your '90' mus be the mg/dL measurement, in which case it's in the normal range.

    it is. I was messing with her glucometer.
    90 is perfect. plus, I'm not human. I thought I made that clear awhile back.

    When I quit touring...I got a job at MGM in the music department. Made money...hung out with the best composers, musicians and artists. Even wrote music for movies and TV. I'd like to think that playing dives and shoestring tours paved the way for that...but it didn't. Lol
