Well I am amazed. I have asked God to help me with my diabetes and my numbers which are never below 250 even fasting, were 122 this morning. Breakfast was too sweet. I actually left half of it on the plate. I couldn’t stand the sweet.
One of the ways I am aiming to fix in myself is this craving for sweets. Now I did have a soda though. One step at a time.
He listened and even acknowledged he should have been following this more carefully and been more aggressive In treatment.
I am now on an increased does of my Glipizide and he added 2 500 mg tablets of Metformin. Now we wait to see if it helps.
I need to take my sugar count every day and take my list or meter into the doctor in my next appointment in a month. I have been taking it everyday anyhow.
I am so glad he listened and treated me this time. He said we might have to consider an endocrinologist if his treatment doesn’t work. I told him about my numbers and the insulin in the hospital and he seemed happy that maybe I would just go on insulin. If the increased treatment doesn’t work I may have to go on it, like it or not, but not ready for that yet.
Went to the store and got fresh fruit and Veggies plus protein to add to diet each meal. And protein just before bed from what I remember.
The plus, thank the Lord, is my diabetes meds are free through the stores program where I get my medications refilled. I can’t complain about that.
Had my blood test today and will get an official fasting reading, but I got 185 myself. Lowest yet.
Almost didn’t get blood test. Son’s car broke down and I gave him mine. I canceled my appointment at the blood lab and then my dad came home. I had to pee very bad and couldn’t because that was one of the tests.
The lab was packed. Funny thing though. Their computer still had my appointment listed and so I ended up at the same time I was supposed to. A woman came in just before 9:30 and had a fit because she jumped on that appointment, but it hadn’t released at the lab so she couldn’t have it. And I wasn’t by myself and I had to pee. So I didn’t say a word. The lab knew I had canceled since I said so only. They had to go by their schedule anyhow. I don’t know how many they schedule for each time frame since they have walk-ins, but she did say all the 9:30 people were already there.
Sort of blew my diet today, but yesterday I got a small salad and egg salad and mixed It up. Not a bad combination and made it more likely I would eat it. Then had half a sandwich for dinner. Not a lot of carbs.
Hope my son’s car isn’t seriously in need of repair. There isn’t an abundance of money around here. The 3 broke musketeers. One of his problems is a recall repair and so that is free. Hope that is the only problem.
I was invited to write for another web site and can write on any topic. Have to get out of the bipolar mind set and try something else.
