I had a check-up with my endocrinologist this afternoon. I hadn’t seen him in three months and my eyes started to water a bit when I began updating him. I always get hit with emotion when I visit my endo (he’s used to handing me tissues). Maybe because my diabetes seems so real when I’m in his office.
After grilling me with the usual questions and reviewing my meter log, he told me I’m doing great. His biggest message to me? Don’t worry so much. He can tell I beat myself up and get anxious over spikes, and suggested that I look at my overall readings from time to time to remind myself that the majority of them are in range. Because I’m continuing to have high readings before bed, he recommended that I cut back on carbs at dinner (ugh). I need to come up with more creative low-carb meals, so please let me know if you have any ideas.
I should have the results of my A1C test early next week. Since the only other A1C I’ve had done was back in January, I’m anxious to see the results.
