I fired my old GP in April.
The new doc ordered a LOT of tests in May.
I've had my hearing checked, mammogram done, bone density (not perfect), moles removed, BP monitor ordered, echo cardiogram, and lots of blood work.
Bottom line, my BP and cholesterol meds have been increased, I now have a cardiologist and will soon have a PA for the diabetes.
My family history is overwhelming. All of my immediate family members were diagnosed with diabetes in their 40s. I think I was fortunate to make it to 61, but perhaps this happened sooner than that. Nothing can be done about that now, so rocking forward.
I am using this as a pivot point in my life.
I am determined to grab my future well-being by the proverbial horns!
I have been walking between 7,500 and 10K steps per day.
Upgraded my gym membership and haven't touched anything with refined sugar in it, since my diagnoses. I am taking metformin and increasing the dosage week by week. This is the first day of week 2.
I have already lost a bit of weight and am excited to see my A1c (first one says 7.7) go down, etc.
