So my A1c is 7.7, which means my average blood sugar is too high. I got the result via the health insurance's website almost a week ago, and I knew that was a problem; I've been tracking my diet and blood sugar much more carefully for the last 2 weeks, and I've been working out to bring the sugars down.
So, today the phone rings while I'm at work. I couldn't answer, because I was busy, so they left a message that my blood sugar is high and I need to have "tighter control" and "exercise more". That annoyed me terribly, because
a. that's the reason I got the blood test in the first place; they're telling me what I already know
b. I've had the result for 5 days, and they're just now calling me
c. I have a doctor's appointment for Friday to talk about the result; why have a secretary call me?
d. They should at least have mentioned that I did a good job getting the cholesterol down and keeping everything else in range
e. I know I need tighter control and more exercise, duh!
f. Never call a teacher before 3 p.m.!!!
