Diabetes yah yah yah

Friday, June 22, 2012

Remember in Rio when Blu says he hates Samba and makes fun of it by saying, "Tico Taco yah yah yah" No?

Oh, well maybe you don't watch it about 4 times per week like we do in our house since its my 3 year old's favorite movie.

ANYWHO...the whole point is that I've had gestational diabetes twice now...once with each of my children and docs were telling me that they think I have type 2 Diabetes. So, its been 12 days since delivery of the baby and I've been tracking my blood sugars to see where they are and I am THRILLED to say that my numbers are totally normal.

Its a huge relief for me. I do have some higher levels post carb heavy meals, but I've been "pre-diabetic" for years...I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the numbers continue to be good and I stay diabetes free!

Diabetes yah yah yah!

    Normal numbers! High-five, my sista.

Sounds like my niece might need Rio for her third birthday this summer. I bought her the Curious George Christmas special around Thanksgiving, and she's STILL watching it once or twice a day. We were whispering to her to say "Happy Father's Day" last week, and she said, "Merry Christmas, Daddy!"

    You are in the right place. Losing weight and exercising will help reduce the risk of developing diabetes. There are a few articles you may want to read about under Health Conditions / Condition Center / Diabetes. There are two on pre-diabetes and one on types of diabetes (covers gestational diabetes) you may want to read. There is also a Spark's team call pre-diabetes sparkers that you may be interested in joining.
