glucose numbers

Tuesday, October 14, 2008

I forgot I was going to post my glucose numbers after going in for a glucose resistance test the other day.

beginning 110
30 minutes later 175
1 hour later 207
2 hours later 173
These numbers are really high.

So I figure that I will be put on a restricted diet or they will want to do another test. I read somewhere that it takes 2 separate test to get a diabetes diagnosis. But my dr gets back in town tomorrow so he will call me after he looks at everything.

Diabetes runs in my family. My mom died from complications from diabetes 30 years ago and my son has juvenile diabetes. I don't know if we can afford for two of us to be diabetic. I know what I spend for his supplies a month. I don't want to think of that times two. I will be working just for diabetic supplies.

    I sure hope you can manage this without having to go on medication! Just keep doing the best you can do... and the weight will come off...and the numbers should lower.

    I see the adds for free diabetics supplies for Liberty ins. That might be worth a call. I thought that ins covered those things. After all, it is a medical condition. Chin up. As you weight decrease so will the diabeties. You might want to email Debbieanne on the Emotional Eaters team. She is diabetic and would know more than I.
