    Denial: A Diabetic Issue

    Denial: A Diabetic Issue

    Have you noticed the number of posts, questions, comments, or observations that start with the words “I was in denial”? I lived a good deal of my life in diabetic denial so I understand the reasons we do it, well at least my reasons. But what I don’t understand is why denial isn’t one of the first and most basic issues the health care industry…


    Weight Shift

    Posted by Stress on April 24, 2014 at 5:56am 0 Comments

    I had my quarterly Endo visit this week and overall everything went very well (latest A1C = 6.2). I had written down a couple of questions for her and one was concerning my weight gain over the past few months and why my pants don't button so easy anymore. She proceeded to tell me that my weight has not changed at all in the past 4 years! She said that my weight has "shifted"! I hate when that happens. So I guess it's back to planking and situps to un-shift it!

    I guess I relied on my doctor and wasn't proactive enough. I thought when I had my fasting tests done, they would call me if something was wrong, they never called so I thought everything was OK.
    Well, this is my punishment for trying to get healthy I guess. I am eating better, exercising and lost 43 lbs so far. I was told I have gallstones because I lost weight. What a vicious cycle. I was trying to get better not worse. But I made it worse somehow.
