I saw my endo last month. I had some success. My cholesterol went from 245 to 167 by taking Red Yeast Rice twice a day. I lost 10 lbs and am almost back in the normal range (haha). And my blood pressure was 140/80 which was better than the 155/86 from the last visit. Success, I said. Not so fast there! My A1c, which hangs between 6.5 to 6.8 had jumped to 7.4. I noticed on my diagnosis slip she put Diabetes, uncontrolled.
So that's me. Fix one thing, mess up another. Of course I'm working on my BGs again but I feel kinda blue right now.
