I've been holding my breath, the polyps they removed were benign.
my BGL is holding at normal levels, except I missed breakfast yesterday, first time in 2 months and they went wacky all day.
Labs were good,looks like no kidney damage.
Eye exam went well, they got a new camera to take a picture of your eyes and there were no problems. The eye doc showed me comparrisons with some that showed the impact of high blood sugar on the eyes, it looked like the capillaries blew up inside the eye.
My prescription did not change from last year, but he talked about what he has seen in his practice. He said that those diabetics who maintained good control rarely had problems with their eyes.
he went on to say that those who had consistent BGL's in the 150 to 200 range usually had problems within 10 years
consistent 200 to 300 BGL problems usually within 5 years
Consistently over 300 problems could show up within a couple years. One of my early questions on the forum was regarding Diabetes effect on your eyeglass prescriptions and these were the answers he gave me yesterday.
My family doc told me Monday EXERCIZE MORE! and that he did not want to see me again for 6 months, he dropped the Actos and apparently thinks my diet has improved enough that he didn't prescribe a cholesterol med. As long as the lipid panel supports it next month it should stay that way.
As pappy used to say all I need now are the 3 S's (Sh**, Shave and a shine) and I think I'm going to wash out the gray.
