Here is my quick story. About a year and a half ago I was diagnosed with Diabetes type 2. I did not know I even had it but my sister recognized some symptoms I was having. I walked into the hospital and they tested me at a 634. Needless to say I had no clue what this meant. They checked me in and began to bring it down with insulin and fluids. Fast Foward to today. On Friday I went to a diabetes Doctor and had a whole bunch of blood taken for blood tests. Results will be in a week. I have been eractic in testing myself and this is a new doctor. I promised the doctor that I would test at least 4 times a day so he can get a good handle on my readings. So I am waiting to see what these blood tests will tell me. I had a kidney taken out in 2005 so this makes my condition that much more serious.
So, I tell my story so I can hear all the support and comments I can from you all to keep me focused on doing the right things. My readings today were 108, 89, 94, & 95. I take medication for my diabetes. I am 6' 2" 261 pounds. I am patiently awaiting my Friday results and will let you all know what it says. In the meantime, I welcome new friends and comments here to help me stay focused and encouraged. I look forward to all your responses and stories. The bottom line is I want to stay positive and on track with what I need to do to Stay Alive!! Thanks for listening.
