Even if you do everything right, such as eating right, exercise, take you medicines ,,and keeping your A1c very low, you still still walk away from the doctors office feeling like you have done something wrong,
Such as I did today, I have brought my A1c from 16 to 5,8 and kept it there for over a year now, plus lost weight, started exercising, ( go for walks every morning,
Wow I am doing great ( so the doctor says ) until today when I was told because of my family history now I have to go on a different medicine because , even thought I do not eat sweets, I do not eat meats, I eat right, according to the doctor, fresh veggies, fresh fruits, lots of salads, , very little fish, lots of vitamins , walks, lots of water, some dairy,, ( I know I need more protein) but with all of this in mind now he tells me , my triglycerides are way to high, now they are coming up to over 300 ,, now what,, more meds, I want to get off all this stuff, I am not sure what I am doing wrong here, , even my cholesterol(good one) is in great shape, its 2 points above normal ,, and my bad is 10 pints above normal,, or where it should be at,,
So tell me doing every thing right, is it worth it even if things come back bad news, ????
How are you supposed to come away happy with your life if you keep getting bad news, or how do you keep your spirits up with always having to be put on some kind of medicines . he wants me to take something to help with my triglycerides,, but after I checked this will either mess up my liver or my sugars , witch I have WORK SO HARD TO KEEP DOWN,,
What do you do,, give up,, keep trying to win a losing battle,, what,,??,, I have not yet been put on this medicines because I told him I wanted to think about this,
There has to be something better this this..
Any and All Help is greatly appreciated.
