My diabetic review

so i just got back home from my diabetic review. i had to go to my gp and see his nurse in the practice, and then see the doctor as well. all is good. the great thing is, i am no longer diabetic! my blood sugars show I have reversed the diagnosis, because I am losing weight. I am so delighted. All my hard work payed off. My sugar today was 5.2 and the last time I checked it it was 6.5. But my overall A1C is great. I know the numbers are done differently in different countries, but mine went from 48 the last one I had done to 41 now, and it has to be 42 for a diabetes diagnosis. I got an ECG on my heart and all is good there too. My vitamin B 12 was also good and my cholesterol has come down from 6.5 to 5.4. So I dont see the gp again now for another six months. By then I’ll hopefully be down another 30 to 40 pounds in weight. The nurse was thrilled that I was going to the gym and that I’ve lost 15 kg or 35 pounds since feburary. I asked my gp if I can come off my metphormin but he said no to that. He said that even though I am no longer diabetic now, that they use metphormin for other things like prventing polycystic ovary disease and stuff like that so he said I have to stay on it forever. Thats fine with me. Its only 2 pills a day. And it will also ensure that things stay in check with my blood sugars too which will be good. So I’m good with staying on it. So overall a great appointment and I am really pleased with how it went.

  1. Oh wow, that’s absolutely great! I didn’t even know it can just reverse like that, and I am thrilled to hear that it happened to you and that thanks to losing so so much weight you’re healthier now. Congrats! πŸ™‚
