So, over in Thursday Thankfulness this morning I talked about going to the doctor yesterday with the hubby. We talked a lot about the issues affecting my husband (many of which scared me pretty good) but we weren't there just for him. We did spend a little time going over my blood work and discussing changes in some of my meds.
One thing I am not happy about, my A1C is
high. This is a blood test that gives you a 3 month overview of your
glucose levels. Something a diabetic needs to know. Especially one who
hasn't been taking very good care of herself. And my A1C definitely
showed that. It has been sneaking up a few points at a time for a while
now. Currently it is at 7.2. This is the highest it has been since I was
diagnosed about 10 years ago.
Back at the first of the year I spent promised myself I would be more faithful about tracking my blood sugar and taking better care of myself. Obviously I have not been doing this. So, I am going to (reluctantly) rededicate myself to taking better care of myself.
This mornings fasting blood sugar was 110, which is actually pretty good. Of course, last night at around 11:00pm it was 150, which is not so good. It was 2 hours after a meal (I am going to have to start eating earlier) and it should have been around 120.
And speaking of exercise, I am going to have to start. Again. Blah.
I am really going to try to make the lifestyle changes I need in order to get my A1C back down and lose some of this extra weight I am carrying around. I just wish the whole process was easier.....
