Called the Endocrinologist (good news)

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

Called the Endocrinologist today. He agreed to test for insulin resistance and the nurse/medical assistant said the he was also going to do multiple other tests, too. I wonder what provoked him to do that but I am glad. I can get my blood work done as soon as tomorrow & then next Tuesday is my appointment.

    Oh goodie! I'm hoping that they can find something out that they can treat and you can feel better all around. I sure feel for you my dear. I also have a low thyroid and take med. every day. I give myself about 15 min. before I eat and I know I should do better but that's tough one. I hate to get up earlier than I have to, and I need to eat asap so I can take my meds. on a full tummy and I have to have my meds. asap because of all my pain with my Rheumatoid Arthritis! I will say that I've lost 60# with being on prednisone also and all I can credit it to, is that I completely changed my way of living. I always hated exercise and I had heard about the recumbent bikes being so good especially for those with pain like RA or whatever. I can't believe it! I can be on that and practically forget I'm on it. I have virtually no pain! You see, I can't walk any more than around 10 min. because of pain. I've cut out simple carbs mostly and eat alot of lean protein, lowfat dairy, lots of fruits and veggies. Now I'm at a standstill, so that's no fun, but I'm trying to increase my exercise, etc. Each one of us is a specimen for science I think. We are so hard to figure out. That's why it's whatever works best for each individua! Good luck and I'm looking forward to hear your results! Hugs, Karen
