Endocrinologist’s report

October 2nd, 2008 · 4 Comments

I really liked my endocrinologist.  He seems like he knows what he’s doing and he’s very personable.  Anyway, he verified my doctor’s diagnosis of pre-diabetes and seconded the opinion that I should use a home glucose meter when I have hypoglycemic episodes so I can see how low my sugar is going.  I may not have too much occasion to use it, though, because he also put me on a diabetic diet (as expected) which he’s confident will reverse my condition.  If, for some reason, it doesn’t, there are medicines to try which should do the trick.  Anyway, if I’m careful I’ll very likely never have full-blown diabetes and may even get out of the pre-diabetic category.  Woohoo!  I’ll always have to be careful, though.  And I really do need to start walking every day.  When I can do that I haven’t a clue.

    I wish we lived closer so we could be walking buddies! Daily walks would do me some good, too. And it’s always much more fun if you’ve got a friend to chat with along the way. 🙂 I’m praying for your health, Andi, and that you’ll find the time to take good care of yourself!

    Oh, I would love to have a walking buddy! The dog really isn’t much company; talking to him really only gets you so far. And he always gets distracted from the conversation when a squirrel jumps out in front of him. Highly unsatisfactory.

    Not sure how satisfying it is but you can dump some Really Weird Ideas off of the dog with no thought of being made fun off, criticized or anything. And if you talk quietly no one will even know you are talking to him. Wear a Bluetooth and everyone will think your on the phone. 🙂

    Depending on your cell phone minutes, we could go walking “together” and actually talk to each other. What a concept! ;P
