I hope to not jinx myself, but I *think* I’m back on track again …. in the last 48 hours, my blood sugars have been in the range of 68 – 129. HUGE improvement from how they’ve been lately. (And I’d like to point out that that is all MY doing and has NOTHING to do with Dr. Douchebag.)
I still have no idea why I was experiencing those highs. And I likely never will know. And yes, it did throw off my A1C last week. But I knew that was going to happen, so I was prepared for it. Good news is, it did not go up AS high as I’d prepared myself for … only .7 points, which isn’t too terrible, considering HOW high I was averaging for 3-4 weeks. And I’m still in a good range overall.
But the other good news is that my blood work overall was much better than it was 4 months ago. I tend to worry about my cholesterol, etc., but ALL of my numbers were not only down from last time, but all were in range. So I’m obviously doing something right. And for that I am HAPPY.
I’m still on the hunt for a new Endo, and I had a few local friends recommend a dr that they all spoke very highly about – so I’m probably going to try him out. And in the meantime, I’ve also spoken to Dr. Gary Scheiner about consulting with him so he can get my overall numbers cleaned up until I can get re-established with a new doctor.
