First trip to a dietician.
Thursday, June 10, 2010
Well today was a first for me. I had an appointment with a dietician for the very first time. We spent an hour discussing my past and present weight issues, then about my goals. She was very helpful with answering my questions. We have come up with a starting plan for me to try for the next 3 weeks.
First she has sent a fax to my PC doctor about having two more blood tests run. One is to measure how much insulin is in my bloodstream. The second one is to measure how much testosturom my body is producing. I should be hearing from my doctor in the next day or two about coming in for the tests.
Second, she wants me to cut my carb intake down to 130 to 135 a day. She said not to worry about my calorie intake at the moment just the carb intake.
She has me checking my blood sugar differently than I was before. I will follow all these steps till I see her again in 3 weeks. I am hoping to see some improvement.
I really felt good about this appointment and talking with the dietician. I was felt like she understood where I was coming from. She also has heard good things about Spark People.
