I'm sorry to read your Hubby's Blood Sugar is so high and wish him the best.I'm curious and must ask,he has an appointment with a Specialist.Endocrinologist?I can't see an Endo unless I have a referral from my Primary Care Physician!
Yes, I was able to get him in on Friday of last week. I called on Thursday and they fit him in on Friday. We have a PPO so we do not have to have a referral. Anyhow, they put him on 2 meds. The doctor said that he is unsure if he is he is type 1 or II but right now he is treating him for type II for now. My husband is overwhelmed....I have never seen him so depressed/confused/consumed..... So, we went grocery shopping yesterday. The doctor said no pasta, bread, rice etc. Has him on a carb and fat restricted diet. Told him that if he looses 50 lbs then he will probably not have to take meds and if he looses 70 lbs then he will probably not have diabetes. He is overweight for sure so the weightloss will be good for him. He is taking his sugar like 4 times a day and it ranges from 188 to 401 since he went to the specialist. The meds are making him lightheaded and dizzy and that is tough for him. Any advise that you all might have is appreciated.....especially anything in reference to diet because diet is pretty confusing.
