I was so nervous about my Endo appointment last week (as usual.) I got there and weighed in – that part is never fun – and it wasn’t as bad as I thought (although not as good as I’d like, obviously.) And then we go back into the room so the nurse can take my vitals.
I admittedly do not always take my BP and thyroid meds as regularly as I should. In fact, I usually remember a week or so before my appt but it’s usually not in time for the numbers to reflect it so I am usually high – running around 142/82. This time I was 132/82. Still “high” but better than “usual”. (I have been better about taking them the past few days. Still saying I’m a work in progress.)
He did tell me that my cholesterol was high. The LDL was twice as high as he said he’d like to see it. 😦 I’m going to make a concerted effort to work on that – sooner than later. That’s not something to mess around with for anyone, but especially not for someone with diabetes. 😦
My last A1C was 6.9 which was down from 7.9 three months prior. I thought for SURE that it’d have crept back up because I haven’t been doing as well as I thought ….. So you can imagine my shock when he wrote down 6.7. Whaaaaa? How does that happen? But whatever, I’ll take it!!
And another bonus – he didn’t draw blood this time. Woot woot.
So all in all, I had a great appointment. Obviously there are areas that need improvement… but I’ll take my successes where I can get them. 🙂
