Doing All The Right Things,But.....
Monday, February 04, 2019
I have been working my butt off and strengthening my mind. I have made tremendous progress despite my health problems. Yet it is days like today when I feel that I am going backwards. This morning my blood sugar reading was 446! I met with my Diabetes Nurse and my Dr. this morning. My Diabetes Nurse thinks that my pancreas has pooped out because of all the stress placed on my body with all the illnesses I have had for the majority of the year last year and also recently having the flu. I am to increase my insulin 2 units every 2 days, but not to exceed 10 units in the next two weeks until my blood sugar reading reaches 130. My next appointment is on the 19th.
I have been eating healthy for a couple of years, I also ditched my Mountain Dew habit. I only drink water or tea. I exercise daily, with the exception of when I was ill with my infected kidney stones as I was in the hospital the majority of the time over 4 months last year and recently when I had the flu. I have also lost 70 pounds over the last year. So the high blood sugar readings are like a slap to the face.
