And The Good Dr Reports Just Keep Coming....

Thursday, January 12, 2012

Had to go in today for a check up to see how the reduction in my Glimiperide was working. I was having so much trouble with crashes with all the exercise and I was convinced it was the Byetta but Dr said no. She dropped me from 6 mg glimiperide down to 2 mg right before Christmas. She said it would probably enable me to lose more weight as this particular diabetes drug will add pounds. That was great news. The crashes pretty much stopped so hey I can admit when I'm wrong. The only time I drop too low is when I'm not meeting my calories. So when the Diabetic Educator checked my meter today She said she thought I needed to just stop taking it all together. She went to clear it with the Dr and they both had to come and say how well I am doing. Made me feel really good. So then I met DH at the gym and really burned out a great workout. Now I have to really step it up because I have to keep my numbers down or they will put me back on it. That would be a step back for me. Maybe now I can get thru that brick wall. DH is off tomorrow too so we plan on doing a 5 mile walk here at home. It makes me feel really good that I have come so far and done so well in just 5 months. Got to keep going. Blogger out.

    Good news! I see you also have great support with your DH, which should make things a lot easier for you. My DH and I keep each other motivated to exercise and eat right even when we don't feel like it. Wish we had started this when we were both younger and with fewer medical issues. But, better late than never and each day we are given is a new day!
