I had my latest endo appointment this morning. My weight is up, my A1C is up and my BP is up. I was not a happy camper. Because I have other risk factors besides diabetes for my eyes and the fact that my BP has now been consistantly over 135/80 for my last 3 visits, she decided to put me on lisinopril. I'm feeling a bit mad/sad/upset about this because it makes me feel that everything I do to control my diabetes means nothing if I'm going to start having complications already. I exercise, I avoid unhealthy foods, I haven't had a A1C over 6 since I started pumping, and yet I'm going on BP meds before my 26th birthday. She did say that the BP is not caused by diabetes per say, but is just an additional risk factor for my eyes and kidneys so she wants it lower. She is also sending me for an echocardiogram to be on the safe side, as I'm a bit young (real age and diabetes age) to need BP meds.
I'm very glad that TU is here for me to vent, as this is the first time in a long time that I've felt that D is kicking my behind. Everyone on here understands these days, so I'm glad that I get my feelings out.
