I had a visit with my doctor this week. Of course, before going I had a bit of blood drawn for an A1c test and a cholesterol check. Two of three months ago he decided to take me off of my cholesterol med, a minimum dose of lipitor, and he wanted to know what would happen. Don’t you love being a bit of a lab experiment?
The short of it:
- Cholesterol “good.” Not great, but he did not put me back on any cholesterol meds. I believe I need to work to get the numbers a little better, though.
- A1c – 6.0 – actually went down .1 over the Holidays! To say I was amazed would be an understatement. I expected slightly higher. So, it seems as though my “Holiday Strategy” was successful.
- Weight – exactly the same as it was two or three months ago. First time that has happened.
He was pleased; and, so was I.
You all know I didn’t start where I am today. Fighting a War On Diabetes is not a war that is won over night. It takes patience, failure, and persistence to win your War On Diabetes.
As always, thank you for reading.
