Diabetes: Journey of Self control


Recommended Posts

It looks like random glucose levels are coming down which is good. Kidney function is improving which is the eGFR.( higher number means better ) and cholesterol is coming down . Still waiting on A1c.

That's just a bit above the goal, right? I bet you can get that right back down again really soon.

 

Yes , I am in the pre diabetic range. I have to be below 6. My dr wants me in the 5.5 to 5.8 range. I think my downfall was eating popcorn too often so back to once a week.

I mean I know my diabetes is well controlled essentially. But I am upset my A1c creeped up a bit. A lot anxiety tonight.

 

Oh, I can tell you are so disappointed!

Your value is very close! This is simply feedback for you to make some adjustments- and it sounds like the popcorn is a possible culprit. So make some adjustments and see how it goes. You can do it! You have really done well through time, overall.

I have done well since last Oct. I just have to keep trying.

You're doing a great job managing your health. I bet your doctor wishes she/he had more patients like you.

 

Thanks! He said I have worked super hard and it shows. He said if I keep working at it all the time my diabetes will never get really bad. But I have to be super diligent.

I will gladly take any pounds you don't want! I have lost 23 pounds and no matter what I can't gain any of it back.

 

And good job! You have a good handle on your health.

 

Maybe something is up more than just anxiety? Maybe time for a full work up?

 

I have tried not to gain for sure .

I had umpteen tests done at the beginning of the year. All tests came back negative. I even had a brain MRI!

 

I always lose weight when I'm stressed and anxious. I'm hoping the move to my brother's house will have a big impact.

 

Anyway, good job keeping yourself healthy!

I hope when you get to your brother’s place that you start feeling better! ❤️

 

I wish I could get out and walk but since I put my back out last week I can barely drag one leg. I think I put out the muscles in that hip and in my lower back. The only way I’m not in unbelievable pain is lying down. I can’t stand and I can’t sit. Which is lots of fun working 630 to 5. 😖😖 I have been doing exercises which stretch out the abductor and flexor muscles in the hip and in the lower back. That seems to help for a little bit but then of course is back to pain but I have to keep up with the exercises or they won’t help.

I'm in the same boat, small but have a hard time keeping weight on. I've had people envy me over that and honestly, they don't know the struggle.

 

It's not always a great thing. I can literally look sick due to being thin. I lose weight at the drop of a hat.

 

In fact, I'm not sure which is worse, someone who doesn't like being overweight, or someone who can't keep weight on and looks sick.

Sounds so rough. :( I hope you get better soon. Hey, by the way, did Pippy get a hold of you? I was on the phone with her last week and she was going to contact you.

This is abnormal for me though. My normal weight is 23 pounds heavier than I am now. It's due to the anxiety.

 

Seraphim, do you see a chiropractor?
