Went to see my PCP today, and I was hoping that my hemoglobin A1C blood test was finally going to be in the "normal" range (5.6% or less). My last test in October was at 5.7, so I was THAT close!
Unfortunately, not only had it not gone down, it went UP! Back above 6%!! Not back into the "diabetic" range, but close enough that I need to more closely monitor my eating, especially in the evening.
Thankfully, my PCP reassured me that it was likely due to the holidays, and then it hit me that in addition to the holidays, I was on the road twice during the past four months! Not making excuses, just a reality check!
Also thankfully, my weight stayed in check, so at least I won that battle!
So...a small step back. Just a reminder that the fight never ends! Vigilance is the key!
Looking forward to refocusing my efforts to get my blood sugar in the "normal" range!
