Hello fellow Sparkers
Well today I have been told that I am borderline diabetic, just to add to all the ailments that I have, I am sure my body is trying to get every ailment from A-Z!
So, from tomorrow it will be a new beginning. I now HAVE to concentrate on what I eat. My blood result is far too close to the borderline not to be ignored. My GP has just said follow a good healthy eating plan, do exercises and hopefully with that and the upped dose of thyroxine, he is hoping my weight will start to come off and blood glucose levels start to fall.
If I sound a bit vague its because I know little about diabetes and diets. I am reading all the info on Sparks so as time goes by will learn more and more, and I am sure there will be a few good souls who are in the same position as me but down the road a bit that can give me some advice/ideas.
I was very surprised to hear I was borderline to be honest, as I dont have the usual symptoms thirsty, tiredness, more bathroom trips! So just goes to show anything can be happening in our bodies and we dont know it. Its only by chance that it was discovered after having recent blood tests for other things - my GP said as we managed to find a vein we will test for everything as the blood is flowing nicely!
So, there you have it!
