More antibiotics and good news re the GTT

Saturday, January 18, 2014

Finally went and had the CTT scan on my sinuses and it turns out that I have a pocket of infection in my Rt maxillary sinus just above 2 of my back teeth! No toothache thank goodness. So am on antibiotics for a month to clear the infection. Hopefully then my headaches will go AWAY!. emoticon .

Glucose Tolerance Test came back normal!, so although my Fasting blood sugar is a bit elevated it looks like my body is doing OK during the course of the day. Good to know.

And what is the cure for elevated fasting blood sugar? Lose weight......... emoticon

So have to start getting back into the swing of exercise. I manage 1-2 times a week. Have to make time for more regular consistent exercise. emoticon emoticon

We are having really hot weather again this weekend, so out early to walk Sooty and do some gardening, then back inside to the cool house. emoticon .

Hope you are all having a great day. emoticon

    Not so great here, but I'm glad you found out about your sinus infection. Saline rinses help too.

    As for your sugar, yep, I heard the lose weight thing too. Going to go back on the diet that I was on before. I'm thinking not until February 1st. Just because. emoticon

    I have to think that clear sinuses = no headaches.

    Overall it sounds like the news is good, or at least manageable. Sooty would love more walks, I'm sure!

    I am glad the scan gave you some answers. I hope the
    antibiotics start working soon to clear up the sinuses.
    Keep cool in the hot weather. Glad to hear you sounding
    so much happier and positive. I hope your headaches
    go away. emoticon emoticon

    HI Libby,
    It's just as well you had the scan. Now hopefully the antibiotics can clear your sinuses and I do so hope the headaches can stop very soon. They can be so debilitating. Take care - am sending prayers and healing thoughts your way.
    Nig hugs, Nattacia

    I was able to get a couple of days of walking in, but now it is snowing again here in NY so I will have to get my exercise shoveling. Thank goodness it is Saturday so I don't have to go to work.

    I hope you feel better soon!
