Since I quit smoking on Feb 1st. I have turned my focus towards getting my diabetes under control. My doctor put me on a daily injection of Victoza almost 2 months ago. I have been trying to eat healthier, be more active, journal, log my food, etc.. Well last Friday, I went back to the doctor, my sugars were lower but still too high and out of the normal range. I was given insulin and took my first dose Friday night.
My older sister, Lou Ann, has been on insulin for over a year and has been able to control her diabetes. Now, here comes my "ah hah" moment. She was helping me be sure I was taking my injections correctly.....well I was not! For the last month and a half, I was not taking the cap off of the needle on my Victoza injection.
LOL, I had to call my doctor Monday morning and am now just on Victoza again and my blood sugars have already dropped in just 4 days from the 300s to an average of 150. I had also gained about 7 lbs and have already dropped 4 of those since last Friday. Asking our Lord to give me the strength to win this battle over the control of my diabetes.
I guess it's true, we all live and learn!
