I saw my doctor today and I am so disappointed. First of all, she didn't test my cholesterol, after making such a big deal about it 3 months ago. So it will be another 3 months before I find out if it has gone down.
My A1c was 6.4. Up .1 from last time. I have been keeping careful track of it at home and I estimated that it would be 6.1. She says this is about what my liver is doing at night and started talking about adding another medication. NO! I'll live with this and work on my diet some more.
Following her diet advice for the last 6 months has sent things in the wrong direction. I'm going back to what I was doing before with a few changes that I have picked up from my more experienced friends. We'll see how I do in 3 more months. :~(
I've decided not to test so much during the day. It just doesn't match up with the A1c labs. I feel my most important reading is the morning fasting number. From there in comes down during the day with proper eating and exercise.
Now I am back to the decision of whether to have a bedtime snack or not. SO frustrating!
