Non-knitting content. I thought I would post more things about daily life in my blog. Afterall, it is all about enjoying "your colorful loops of daily living.
I had a dr visit today. Actually it was with the nurse practitioner. It was one of my quarterly visits to discuss my diabetes care and to get my HA1c reading. Today's was a whopping 8.4. The goal is 6.0 or less. The closer I am to 6.0 the more likely I am to have fewer complications related to diabetes. I currently do not have any complications. :)
We spent about 15 minutes reviewing my readings and were not able to figure out a pattern to the readings that would lead to a good next adjustment to my insulin pump settings. I don't have a normal schedule and this makes it tough to monitor any variables to my treatment. I'm going to have to take more blood sugar readings (before a meal and 120 minutes after I start eating a meal) and stop eating 4 hours before I go to bed. :/ I sometimes eat dinner at 11:00 at night after I've gotten home from the days events. I'll be working with a new routine over the next several weeks. I hope it's NOT as much of a struggle as I fear.
If you are curious on how things are going with my investigation, leave a comment. I'll post updates periodically if there is interest.
