Season Three: Episode Eleven

APRIL 4, 2022

Health Update!

I got my blood taken last week Thursday to check my A1C. As it turns out the last time I got it checked was a year ago. It was 8.7 last March and wow it got worse since then. I’m at 10.2 now. What a failure. I’m very upset with this and myself. I know what I need to do but it’s so hard to do it.

I’m going to be doing more tours later this week so I hope it’ll get me back on track. I can’t really control what I eat on tour unfortunately but I’ll be more active at least.

I went on tour on Friday and I walked over 8000 steps and I was just training so hopefully it’ll be closer to 10,000 soon.

Also, I just had my eye appointment today and my ophthalmologist said everything looks good. Even with the high A1C my diabetes hasn’t gotten to my eyes yet so that’s a plus. Also my eye pressure is down too. Usually it rides closer to 20 in both eyes but today it was 17 in the right eye and 18 in the left eye. That’s a big plus for me.

Also my visual field was good he said. I didn’t miss anything apparently which I’m sure is a lie because there were some that I know I didn’t see. But this a great place for me with my vision. I have to go back in three months to check up on my prescription. Apparently, I am nearsighted just a little. I didn’t know that.

This Thursday, I have a DOT physical for work and an appointment with my endocrinologist. I have to call my insurance and see if I am able to get any type of insulin covered by insurance. That would be really great.

Next Monday is my dentist appointment. I haven’t gotten my teeth seen since I was like 23 I think. So I hope my teeth are doing okay with my diabetes. Remember diabetes can affect your teeth too.
