I realized just before Christmas that I have an endo appointment on January 4th and was supposed to get blood drawn in mid-December. Oops! So I went and got it done today, and the results showed up online tonight when I checked.
My A1c is 7.3% which is great! It hasn't gone down but also hasn't gone up. I'm going to talk to my endo about infusion sets because I think I have serious absorption problems sometimes. The night before last as my site was nearing the end of day 2 (I normally change them every 2 days) it got super itchy and my blood sugar and ketones shot up. Then again last night my blood sugar randomly shot up to 17 (300 mg/dl) with ketones and stayed there for hours, but came down literally just as I was about to change the day-old set (and today BG has been totally fine). It's so annoying! I think if I could somehow prevent having these totally random extreme highs (without having totally random extreme lows) I would be able to get my A1c down a bit and into a better range.
I also got my cholesterol tested which was 4.9 (191 in U.S. numbers) for the total cholesterol, 2.8 (109) for the LDL, and 1.7 (66) for the HDL, and 0.9 for triglycerides. I am sort of dreading telling my (new) endo that I didn't take the Crestor he prescribed. But from reading up on it and talking to people I am just really not comfortable taking it. Especially because I don't think my cholesterol is that bad (especially considering I have weight I could lose) and I don't have any history whatsoever of heart disease in my family, and I'm only 31 ... I think if I started to see my cholesterol go up or if I was older or showing signs of heart disease, maybe, but I've also had a bazillion heart tests over the past year that shows that there is not even a hint of any heart disease starting. So I don't know what else to tell him other than that I'm uncomfortable.
The one test that might be slightly concerning is my estimated kidney function test dropped from 120+ three months ago to 79. It's never been that low before. Usually it has always been 90-120+. So I'm not sure if that's concerning or not, but I suppose I will find out when I see my endo.
