This week I saw my doctor about my lab test results. My A1C was 230.
Cholesterol- can't recall if it was triglycerides or one of the others but whichever one that should be at 100 for normal range, clocked in at 899. I'm not kidding. My weight is beginning to affect my liver as well. Dr. said if I continue this way, I will have problems with heart, liver, kidneys and vision. He upped my Lantus to 35 units 2x daily, added some pills and increased some others. I am now taking twelve (!!!) pills, a couple of them twice a day! I have only just turned 44 and I feel that's too many pills. I am lax with everything. Lax with my insulin, lax with my diet. I eat with little thought to my health. I don't know why. Is it because I have a disease I cannot see? Is it because I'm tired of having it? I don't want to die and I don't want to be sick so I am embarking on a new plan that includes going back on Weight Watchers and fitting in some exercise. Specifically, walking and Pilates/yoga/dance DVDs. I lost twenty pounds two months ago and put ten of it back on just the past month. I am disgusted with myself. I just wanted to share my update with you guys. Thank you.
