Home > FBG = 97 - WHOOHOO!


September 27th, 2011 at 11:10 am

I was so happy this morning to see my fasting blood glucose was 97. Under 100 is considered normal. This is the first time I've been under 100, just 6 months ago it was running over 200 so big improvement. Next goal is to get it around 80 - 85 in the morning.

My shoulder is still hurting this morning, but it's getting better.

Gave mom and dad their anniversary gift today. 2 gift cards for $25. 1 for Subway and 1 for Red Lobster. They eat out a lot and always like restaraunt gift cards.

Mom's struggling with the cumadin and blood clots. She's really tired, her kidney hurts and she's starting to show bad bruising whenever she hits her skin. She thinks she's so tired because they draw blood from her every 3 - 4 days. Their machine to check for the cumadin levels always tests wrong so they draw blood to find the right level. Well if your machine is always wrong and you know that, why don't you fix it?

She's trying to find a dr that will take her as a new patient also. She's on medicare and she spent all Thursday afternoon and Friday morning calling around to find one, no one will take new medicare patients. She finally decided to go to mine, but she doesn't really care for the male dr. I got to the female one and she's ok. It's a husband/wife team.

I finished reading the library book The Lost Gate by Orson Scott Card. Sci/Fi - very good.

    Nice job on getting that BG under control! Keep it up, that is awesome, and it will lead to better health overall, I am sure of it. Re: your mom, it can be hard to find doctors who can add more patients on Medicare insurance because of the changes in payment from the government. I hope you find someone who she likes! (My favorite O.S. Card books are the "Ender" series, starting with "Ender's Game." He's very good!)
