I went to my primary care doctor this afternoon. My blood glucose is high again and my A1C was up.
I am suffering from yeast from too much glucose and I am to go back to see her in two weeks with a printout of what I have been eating. If my glucose readings are not coming down, I will start insulin.
I have become super-sensitive to carbohydrates in potatoes, rice and pasta. I saved an online site to my favorites and have been listening to the doctor there. She said we don't need carbohydrates, that we will get them from fruits and vegetables. She recommends eating what would come from your garden or from fruit or nut trees. No pesticides, no added ingredients.
Since my husband has retired, there are all sorts of sweets, snacks and boxed, convenience foods. I have been able to avoid all but potato chips. When our daughter visited, her husband came to the door with four dozen Krumpe's doughnuts. There were 6 of us here at the time and we each ate one. My son bought Chinese food for them the last night they were here and I had a high glucose reading from the rice.
I don't want to take insulin shots, but I will have to work a lot harder on getting in the daily exercise to counter the carbs that I do eat.
My weight was 239 and I didn't have her write down the blood pressure or pulse.
Somehow writing a blog about my problems, makes me feel accountable until I go back. I really need someone on my side during the times when I am home with all of this junk food in the house. About the only thing here right now that is not bad for me is bananas and pre-packaged salad. Bananas are high in sugar though.
Hubby likes bacon and sausage and he could eat that daily. We do have other meat, but a lot of pork chops, pork roasts. You would think we raised hogs.
He doesn't care for chicken, but I have some boneless, skinless chicken breasts. He will eat KFC though. Anyway, I am not going to make this about what he eats as opposed to what I need to eat.
This yeast infection is in my urethra and it has really set me back. Prayers requested please. I don't like being graphic, but when I urinate, I do a silent scream. I had intertrigo and I can't seem to get rid of it permanently.
