Went for three month checkup. Good that my A1C was the same as last time, 7.4. I was supprized for this includes Christmas, son's wedding, and about four birthdays. Still have work to do on this. But Doc added a new drug, Victoza to see how I will do. I'm finding that the same meal six months ago had humalog of say 34 units, now the same meal and portion is 45-50 units. Three small pancakes of quinoa flour with peanut-butter and 6g. jam is usually 80-100 units of humalog. And to top it all off - my sciattica is back! Exercise, forget it!!! So hope that Victoza works to cut the weight. Also will insurance pay for the new drug when the samples run out?
Today is five weeks without diet soda! This is a big deal for me. When my box of Crystal Light is empty, I'm stopping that too.
