That changed beginning with a trip to the Wayne County Fair. I stopped at the Cleveland Clinic booth and had my blood pressure checked. 185/102, not good. I was advised to see my doctor soon.
The next morning I decided to check my sugar for the first time in quite awhile. 317. Uh oh. First one who needed to know was my wife, then it was time to give my doctor a call.
Before I left for the doctor, I once again checked my sugar, and it was 317. Now I thought for sure I was going to have to start taking insulin, but the doctor had other plans.
Once inside the office, I also realized that I haven't lost any weight either. Now the good news begins. My meds were adjusted, one was increased, another was added, and no insulin.
Now about the weight. Time to begin reading nutrition labels. Also time to start practicing restraint. It's beginning to work. I lost two pounds in the past week.
A minor victory, but a victory nonetheless.
