Out of the jungle of denial...

Monday, August 27, 2012

I went for a work physical on July 31st. The company doctor would not sign off so I could get this new job because my heart rate and blood sugars were elevated. I got new blood work done on August 1st and it revealed an A1C of 8.8. When I saw my doctor on August 4th, she wanted me to see a cardio doctor but knowing how long it would take to get to see a cardio doctor and then get the tests neccessary, she put me in the hospital over the weekend. After a whole series of test came back negative for heart problems, I went back to my doctor.
August 9th, my doctor gave me permission to go back on to Atkins when I assured her that I would not go crazy again with the eggs, bacon, beef, and butter. I FINALLLY decided that I really need to take control of my diabetes and weight. I started Atkins on August 13th - without cleaning out my house and have not been tempted by the pasta, rice, and other things not on the acceptable food list.

I am very pleased to share that I have lost 6 pounds and my sugar numbers are down over 100 points. Now if my doctor would fax those test results to the company doctor I might be able to start my new job if they have not found someone else for the position.
