Report from The Doc

report card

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.
