Saw my PCP today. She really is the best and I am so very lucky to have her. I deeply appreciate the fact that she works with me not just for me. It’s pretty nice. I did a massive amount of blood work last week and — I’m normal! Well, except for the d and the thyroid and the rest of the stuff… But all tests were good. A1C dropped .2 and I’m fine with it. She’s fine with it. We did Vitamin D & B tests as I’ve had problems in the past but those are good.
While waiting for her in the examining room, Dexcom did its buzzing thing to tell me I was lower than normal. I tested and it was correct. So when she walked in I was munching on Skittles.
BP with the assistant was NOT normal. BP with my PCP with the correct cuff was more than normal.
Weight – I lost about 40 pounds when I was diagnosed and being treated as a T2. I’ve gained half of that back. It’s stayed about the same for the last year. And that’s okay, too. Although, I have to be honest – buying a pair of pants – size 6 – was sorta nice. And nope, can’t wear them now. Oh well…
And now, I’m going to have a very small piece of french silk pie and bolus the heck out of it. I think it will be worth it!
