Lost more weight and saw the doctor
Wednesday, July 29, 2009
Got down to 185.9 this morning. That was surprising.
I finally went in and saw a doctor- A new one. I didn't care for her, she wasn't pleasant or friendly but she did order a bunch of tests so maybe I can find out some things. She also explained something very interesting to me. When I have been eating at work, I go from low blood sugar to a fast beating heart and feeling weird. She said it was a reactive sugar or something and it was caused by the carbs I'd been eating at lunch. Pretzels, crackers, bagels, oatmeal- too many bad carbs. She said to eat complex carbs like whole grain and brown rice. She also said to eat protein not carbs for food at work. That's why it doesn't happen at home, we eat mostly meat at dinners! So that complication might go away with some tweeking of the diet which is great!
I will be getting the labs done tomorrow and will hopefully know something by Monday.
