I went to the dr on Monday and got back the results today… A1c is 5.8 instead of 13.2 (like at April 2013 diagnosis)!!! Whoop whoop!!! Time to celebrate, right?! WRONG!!!
So they want me to start on a liprinosil (excuse the spelling)! Apparently my microalbumin is too high. Even though it's a blood pressure medicine it's supposed to help protect your kidneys. And they also want me to start on cholesterol meds!! Wth!!!! I've lost 60 lbs in less than 8 months so I can't imagine that my cholesterol is any worse now than it was at diagnosis!! I'm trying to get off the Metformin, not add more meds! I'm freaking 27 and a lot of times once you start on meds you stay on them for life. Idk what to do. I want to be as healthy as possible for as long as possible, but I really don't think putting me on a ton of drugs is gonna help!
I'm so frustrated!!! I'm doing the best I can at managing my diabetes! Are you guys taking these meds?? I also don't have an Endo, should I find one??
This honestly makes me what to give up & eat whatever the hell I want! At least then it would justify all this crap that's happening!!
