Health - Part 3

Had my appointment on Thursday.  Discovered my glucose level - my fasting glucose level - on the 27th was 341.  341.  That's an ominous number.  Especially since it should be around 100. 


So - I'm eating almost nothing but twigs & pine nuts and testing my blood twice a day.  See how low I can get my level and then if I'm at the target, I don't have to go back for 4 weeks.  If I don't reach target, I have to go back in 2 weeks.

Oh...and the medicine they've put me on.  Metformin.  1000 mg two times a day.  Heavy duty dosage... 

Yay.  Yay.  and Yay...

Metformin works really well at keeping your sugar in check, and Momma was always able to eat a little sweet something while she was on it. Don't let it get you down! Better on that than having sugar that high! That's scary!
