Was I Waiting for This to Happen?

Saturday, July 07, 2012

In the link is what I typed about my prediabetic A1C. My fasting glucose and one hour post-meal readings are not bad - but my sugar feeding frenzies pushed my blood sugar WAY up high, and that's how the A1C became elevated.

You can buy a home A1C test kit for about $20, for 2 tests, or ask your Dr. to order a lab test. You don't need a glucose meter for this test - everything is in the kit.

I bought a glucose meter and started testing myself to learn just how different foods affect me. There are videos on youtube showing how to do the testing.

    I have recently found out that I was a diabetic hun and have been in denial for the past year! It happens to us all. Hope you are well. Back sparking as usual and loving it.

    Yeah, the old denial was at it with you! But dang it if that's what it is taking for you to wake up and get going, so be it! At least you are alive and well as well as awake!!! You get your Spark on any way you think you can sustain!

    You weren't waiting for it to happen. No one thinks it can happen to them. The good news is healthy eating and exercise can keep it from getting worse.
