Just wanted to update the results of my visit with the kidney doctor. I had about 8 vials of blood drawn that day and then this past Monday I had an ultrasound of my kidneys. The results of the blood tests were all within normal limits according to the nurse I spoke with today. I do not have hepatitis and I don't have lupus which is very good news! I haven't heard from the ultrasound yet but I have a follow up appoint with the doc again on July 1. So, we will go from there.
It is amazing to me how my own emotions can make me feel physically good or bad. I've been worrying ever since my regular doctor told me things were getting bad with my kidneys. I had been feeling really crappy all week. I have had back pain (which is normal for me) and even had some mild flu symptoms. As soon as I got the results of the blood tests I got up and did some work in the garage, put in a load of dishes to wash and cleaned the living room. I didn't over-do it mind you, but I did get some stuff done. I hate when my mind thinks up a bunch of stuff and I let it make me feel awful.
So, that's where I am right now. Much love to all my fellow diabetics here on DC!
