Diabetes Appointment Results

I am home from work and the Diabetes Clinic appointment.

It is the kind of weather than can just cause you to melt and all that sweet, sticky stuff! But it does seem to be cooling off somewhat.

The appointment at the Diabetes Clinic with my specialist went somewhat better than I expected. While my blood sugar a1C test is 9.3 and my triglycerides are up somewhat, the cholesterol is down a bit and I've lost several pounds since my last check-up.

I need to get back to a healthier diet, something that was impossible while living with the abdominal pain and the diarrhea, which he said was very likely due to the Avodart and then the Proscar meds. He told me that I should stay on the Glumetza, and that I might want to augment the dose of both that and the Diamicron, depending on whether sticking to a decent, healthy diet brings the blood glucose back under control somewhat. There was no talk of insulin, other than to say that it wasn't time for me to start it yet, as there are still other options, for which I'm very grateful.

So, a much better day than I expected. Now if the weather would cool off and stay at a balmy 19oC (about 66oF or so) I'd be just peachy keen happy.

Time for a nice cup of hot chai tea.
