Yikes, Flopsie! Feel better and take extra caution until you see doc on Monday! I cannot believe you did not go to the hospital after that episode!!!!
Feel better soon!
Good evening friends,
Well, just got back from doctor and he seems to think most of my problems are related to the uncontrolled diabetes, No more oral meds..Insulin now..Sniff..sniff
Will know a litle more when the results from the gallon of blood he took today comes back. I also go in the morning for some fasting blood work. The result I did get ..protien in urine. Oh, and he increased my Lasix to 80 mg.
I also got one more diagnoses that just scares the beegees out of me (as if I needed another one) Bi-Polar Depression. Don't know much about that one yet, will have to go on-line and see what I can find
so really not much to tell till lab results come back cept..well, I aint dead yet!
Thanks for caring,
Ok folks, I am still in shock here ,
got all my lab work back today and oooohhhwwweeee, I think I am dead, well ok, maybe not yet.
My tryglicerides are double normal level at 700. My cholesterol is a little high also at 400, lol should be under 200. cardio CRP up there. A1C at 8.6. Should be less than 7. gee I wonder why I am having double vision all the time and can not keep my balance.
My wonderful doctor says "Something has to change, you have the 3 major factors going on for all 3 of the main causes of death.. Now why would he say a thing like that...mm I wonder.
K, here is what we are doing #1. Trygliceride diet and you should see it. Nothing but no, no, no, no...
Tricor daily, (and do not read about side effects)
Here is the kicker, I must walk everyday for exercise..how the devil am I gonna do that when I can barely hobble to my bed. Well, I have decided, I will ride my scooter down to the beach area, park and walk to the water and ride back home. At least it is a start.
So he is giving me six weeks to get it down!..What he is going to do if it is not? I don't know I was too scared of him to ask, he was to say the least "looking like a mean ol bear".
oh yeah, the diet? no sugar, candy, cakes, pies, pastry, cookies, ice creeam, red meat, syrup, jelly, yep all the goodies are gone
Must have chicken, fish or veal, 3 ozs only, lots of veggies, 1/2 cup per serving. water, water, water, and I HATE water.
Well, ok, will try to do what he says, I may or may not be around in six weeks, we shall see.
i can feel myself getting weaker as we speak from no food. What shall I do?
Oh yeah, I forgot i don't start the diet till tomorrow..forgot LOL.
The one really hard part truly is..I have to stick myself 8 times a day and test my BS untill I see him again! ouch..my fingers are throbbing already,
