Early Morning Phone Call from My Doctor...Insulin Resistant

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

Before leaving work this morning, I received a call from my doctor. I saw her last week due to me being fatigue all the time. She ran a bunch of lab work. Most came back essential normal but I am in her words, "somewhat insulin resistant". This was one of my biggest fears since I gained weight was the possibility of being at risk for type 2 diabetes and/or heart disease.

My mother has type 2 diabetes and watched her struggle with it for years. Now that I know that I am "somewhat insulin resistant" I am at increased risk of developing diabetes and/or heart disease. Solution: LOSE WEIGHT AND BE MORE ACTIVE

I can do this! I am more dedicated to my resolve now to get healthy, I am not going down that road of Diabetes. emoticon

    I am doing my final for Health Care on Diabetes... you can stop this now! It is totally reversible! The good thing is, that it was caught early and you have a chance to turn things around. The American Diabetes Association has all the info you need to get moving in the right direction including diet, recipes, exercise etc... I am so excited for you that you found out now instead of letting it go to the point of full blow Diabetes! That is a God moment... in my book!
