What do I do to keep moving myself in the right direction & lower my A1c? Its been 5 weeks since my diagnoses of Diabetes. I had my first doctors visit last Monday to see how I am doing. I have made improvements but things still are not as good as I hoped for.
My triglycerides were in well into the stroke range of 1051 and now they are 194. Still double whats normal but not off the charts as before. I take Fenofibrate for that. My cholesterol was 330 and now is 253 without taking any Statens. I do not want to take any as my liver values are not good and I heard Statens are hard on the liver. I have been keeping my blood sugar low as I am human. My readings are between 90 to 120 with an rare 135 thrown in maybe once a week.
This all is moving in the right direction but my A1c was 8.3 I was so disappointed in that. My doctor said it is more of a three month snapshot and two months I was running high blood sugars.
I have already had an episode of optic neuropathy where my vision changed for 10 days and then went back. My skin is dry and the burning is starting in my feet. What care do I give my skin? I know to call the doctor but what care do you give yourself?
What are you things you do to lower your A1c, your Triglycerides and Cholesterol? Please help me with your ideas. Thanks Family
