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.
