Doctor's Appointment Update

Monday, May 06, 2019

Met my new PCP on Thursday. She was THRILLED and impressed with what I have done for myself by following SparkPeople for the last 12 months. While I "only" dropped 2 pounds since my December visit, I did lose and given the obstacles that I have been dealing with since then I was ok with that. I am currently in the process of weaning off my beta blocker. It has side effects that my previous PCP was concerned about and wanted me off of but she moved to Africa to be a missionary before we could complete that process. So we're off insulin since September, cut one of my orals in half in February and am dropping the beta blocker within the next two weeks. She also wants to try reducing another of my oral diabetes meds at my next visit in 3 months when we see where my A1C is then. I was a tiny bit disappointed that we didn't do an A1C this visit but I can wait until August. Onward!
