not the news I was expecting....
Tuesday, May 21, 2019
I had a doctor's appointment today. I expected to find I had lost some weight and a better A1C number. I did lose a few pounds (4) but my A1C was WAY higher than I expected. At 8.5 I was shocked and discouraged. I thought I had been so careful with my carbs and nutrition. I've been reading labels and eating lean meats and a lot more fish, and fresh vegetables at every meal. I have even pushed through the pain and started walking (granted, it hasn't been much...but it's a start)
My doctor DOUBLED the metformin dose, and added Trulicity. I am really scared of the possible side affects of the trulicity...not to mention the thought of a shot. I guess I just have do what I have to do,
I will work at the weight and maybe things will get better.
