Even though the type 2 diabetes diagnosis was a shock and made me properly wig out, I seem to have been able to go down by 5 very important points through diet alone. Which is also ironic as I’ve basically spent 4 months freaking out about what to eat.
Needed to speak to the doc about changing my meds as metformin is some kind of IBS accelerant and damn near killed me.
I’d had my bloods done a while ago and asked him to check those… seems he doesn’t want me on any pills. The blood work showed the points drop. He is happy with that progress. So am I!!
Basically I go back in six months to repeat bloods, no need for new meds.
This is the news I needed.
I can kick this right up the backside and get to 50 ( and to be honest, I have no idea what these numbers mean, but its something to aim for with the doc, so I go with it) and hopefully be told I’m diabetes free at some point. Lose some more weight now. Sorted.
I am so very happy. I may be able to be free of a disease. And when you are stuck with fibro forever and are doing cancer checks for a decade, this is a proper glimmer of doability.
(Still not gonna gorge on cakes though… *sigh*)
