The dreaded phone call
Tuesday, June 03, 2008
I finally got the call I've been waiting on for over a week now. The nurse from the doctor's office casually calls to let me know my A1C test results. They should read under 6.0 but mine came back 8.5. I had a feeling but was optimistic that no news was good news. Between that and high bad cholesterol readings
I'm just so overwhelmed!
I hate going on medications to regulate 'stuff'. I was always that healthy chick. In the last couple of years I've had to go on thyroid and blood pressure meds. I admit, I do physically feel better now that it's straightened out. I did change my diet somewhat and over a year's time, dropped about 20 lbs without really trying. Simple changes.
Tomorrow I go in for diabetic education. I've dropped about 6 lbs over the last 3 weeks with the 1500 calorie diet plan my dr gave me to go by. I'm determined to get this under control. I don't want to go on Metformin or whatever (can't remember what she told me now) for the cholesterol.
OK...finished with my tantrum so on with gettin back to healthy!!
