Dr Update


Thursday, August 22, 2013

Had my quarterly checkup with my primary care Dr yesterday. All the #'s are either good or improving. Ha1C stayed steady at 6.1, so my Dr and I agreed to stop using remaining diabetes med (Metformin, 500MG 1x/day), but to keep an eye in my blood sugar to make sure it does not start creeping back up. The iron #'s all have improved since I started on the iron supplement last month, and appears I am OK to start donating blood again!!

Now all I need to do is get my Achilles tendon all healed up so that I can start running again!

  Great news from your check up. Hope your injury heals quickly so you can get back to your exercise routine. Sounds like you miss it.
