Update on Latest Endo Appointment
I spent the entire three plus months since then fighting to pull out of the tailspin I went into as a result of that surprise.
I actually expected this A1C to be higher than the last one, so I was a bit relieved to see that it was not as bad as I thought.
Everything else was pretty good:
Blood Pressure - 110/64
Kidney - 100% normal
Cholesterol - Total 125, LDL 82 (looking to be below 80) and HDL 32 (looking to be higher than 40)
Feet - no detectable neuropathy
The cholesterol is ever so slightly higher (LDL) and lower (HDL) than desired, so he's upping my Lipitor a bit.
He also referred me to a dietitian. I dread it. I know that diet is my weak spot, and I really do want to change, but how the heck do you change these (poor) eating habits you've had your whole life?! I also have to do some legwork to find out if this particular dietitian is considered "in network" with my insurance.
More to come...
