Sun is shining again and May is rolling by. My fasting BSL was 122 today which is fantastic. I do feel sluggish. I slept like a rock last night. I am beginning to wonder if I should say something to my doctor in a couple weeks about my hip, or if it will go away on its own. Wait and see I guess.
I think my tiredness is a product of having such high blood sugars then finally getting them under control so consistently. I had a different doctor explain it to me as this: Your pancreas acts like it is running a marathon that never stops. When the blood sugar goes high, it is the pancreas' way of saying I am tired I just can't do it as well. Then acts like someone running up a mountain pulling a mac truck behind them. Then when it is to the top of the mountain it will say - ready to go again and shoot down that mountain but be exhausted from going up carrying that mac truck. Eventually to even out for a longer period of time and feel ok.
It made sense based on my feelings. Of course there are contributing factors in that mac truck but it still makes sense to me based on how my cycle of this feels.
Ahhh I will regain energy sometime.
