3 mos since diagnosis
Saturday, March 01, 2014
i had my 3 mo appt with the doctor this week. I managed to lower my AIC from 9.3 to 6.1. As a result, I came off glicazide as dr is now concerned about potentional hypoglycemia
Credit to SP's diabetic nutrition track it taught me how to balance meals in order to minimize BS increases.
I was able to get my blood pressure from 132/85 to 116/76.
I even managed to lower my cholesterol slightly, unfortunately not enough to avoid going on a statin med.
I worked out 11 times in the month of February, 8 of which were in the last 2 weeks of the month and had a total of 363 minutes of exercise. Although I did not do 10 minutes daily, this averaged 13 minutes per day.
Weight was done a pound for the month. I say 'a' pound but I mean "only one? Are you kidding me?" I don't understand how I can make such great progress in so many areas and not on the scale.
Well, it's a new month and I have recommitted to exercising daily as well as maintaining the good BS and BP
