I'm sorry- I mainly hop on tudiabetes when I'm panicking about something - but I could really use your input.
Just got my lab results in the mail after asking for a copy - the doctor did not go over them, nor did she indicate there were any problems (new endo though, as we've just moved). We've been under LOTS of stress lately, moving, new jobs, torn meniscus... fun, fun, fun. I know I've not been taking the best care... too many carbs (by far) and too little water - also a couple of glasses of wine in the evenings and coffee in the mornings - so I know dehydration may be a factor...
My numbers were as follows:
Microalbumin 13.6 mg/L
Creatinine 42 mg/dL
Albumin/Creatinine Ratio 32.4 (H)
BUN/CREA ratio 21.60 (H)
Glucose was 137 fasting - triglycerides 333; cholesterol 211,.
Somehow they failed to get an A1C, but I'd suspect around a high 7 to an 8... Last 3 months it was 7.3.
Does this sound like something I should be panicking over - or could it be dehydration and stress? I've been diabetic for 25 years, so not much surprises me anymore - but I sure was hoping not to deal with kidney problems for many more years if ever...
My main concern is that the doctor didn't order more tests... does that mean she doesn't consider it a concern - or just didn't bring it up?
Any words of wisdom (or comfort) are welcome! Thank you so much...
