Yesterday I had a rather productive visit with my endo.
First of all, I found out that I have lowered my a1c by 0.4%! My current (as of last wednesday) a1c is 7.5%! I am very estatic about this number. My mom says she thinks this is the lowest I have ever been! My dad says he thinks I was at 6.8 once. Haha, I don't remember.
Second of all, Dr. M said she thinks that my leg pain and numbness sounds like inflamatory problems. She suggusted I try taking advil before exercising and waiting 30 minutes. She said that I probably have some sort of shin splint problem. She said it doesn't sound like neropathy.
Finally, we talked about insulin resistance. She said that my basals arent' actually that high and that it could be a lot worse. She said that she woulnd't worry, and that of course losing weight (which btw I lost 4 lbs!!) would help. We also talked about an exercise program and things that could help me stick with it.
All in all, a very satisfying day!
Tomorrow I have a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT (hint: I'm jumping on the bandwagon) so watch out!
