My last A1c was 8.9. I know it is still too high, but, it is a great improvement from the last two.
My insulin has been changed 3 times in the last couple of months from 75/25 to Levemir, which I had a reaction to, then to Lantus. This is much better. I still might have to go on Januvia if I cannot bring the spikes down at 10 AM. I may have to bring the carbs down to 2 at breakfast. I am supposed to have 3, but today, I spiked to 11.4. As soon as I sat down, I wanted to sleep. It helped not to give in to that, as hard as it was, I was successful.
Since the 22nd of November, I would double what ever my pre-breakfast numbers were. I have had made the adjustment from 15 units to 20 units. Now I am having my morning numbers closer to the 7 they want.
My weight is still not good, but, it is the lowest it has been in years...like high school. That makes me happy. What I find so upsetting is the skin sagging going on. I have shrunk a whole inch and do not need anymore female exams, EVER, unless, I get sicker. I am feeling older to say the least.
I had a thyroid test last week and he says that I am doing well. Why don't I feel like that though?
Supposedly, ALL my health issues ARE related to the thyroid. After all the research I have done, I still do not believe him.
I am so stuck in the traditional medical field. I would love to see what an alternative doctor says.
In England, there is a man who killed a lady while driving due to low blood sugar. He ran up the curb and actually hit 2 ladies. The other one is in hospital.He will be sentenced next week. This scares me to death. There it is law that you test before you drive. Here, we had a man with his huge semi drive over a meridian on the highway. I have mentally blocked the outcome.
I had a "2" once while I was driving.I could not pull over, either. So there I was trying to test and treat . Too scary!! I was also having them in the middle of the night... twice to be exact.
Now you tell me why my doctor put me on 75/25 when it is not for people who are all over the place???
I get so frustrated with all the mis - treatment.Our government, 6 months or so ago,authorized long acting insulin. I had to be on all kinds of the wrong stuff for years. The consequences ? Glaucoma and surgery with an implant, nerve damage in my toes and partially into my feet, gastroparesis. The change in diet makes this gastric stapling almost bearable.I will need to be on Prevacid the rest of my life...unless its a systemic yeast infection causing the problem.I do not eat anything with yeast in it, nor do I eat white flour or wheat.I need to eat more veggies... I am doing better at it but... My favorite is brown rice cakes, peanut butter and bananas.
Well, better be off and running before my sugars start to rise. HA!! Me run? I don't think so.My heart could not take the shock, nor could my knees.
Thanks for listening.Talk to you later.
