Gp visit

I had to visit my GP this morning.

I had to get labs drawn. Its to check my A1C for the last 3 months, since I started on the Trulicity!

I had other labs drawn also. My kidney function, thyroid function, liver function, etc.

I really did not want to have to go out, but if I was to cancel this appointment it will be weeks before I can get another one.

So I just sucked it up and went!

My appointment was early, 10:15.. The sucky thing is that I had to fast, I was fasting since midnight.

I was starving by the time I was done!

I tested my blood sugar last night at midnight. It was 13.8 its over 250. So pretty bad.

That was after no food for several hours.

I haven’t been testing it regularly. I kept forgetting, which isn’t good. I need to get in the routine of testing it at least twice a day.

So anyway. I didn’t sleep well last night, and I am feeling tired this afternoon.

I just took a nice long hot shower. Saves me having to do it in the morning when its cold.

  1. …for the daily blood tests, have you looked into the Freestyle Libre system? There’s a device you attach to your arm that does constant monitoring, and you can use your phone to swipe over it and it tells you your blood sugar level. It’s also called a Continuous Glucose Monitoring System, basically it means no more finger pricks.
