Every 3 months, I go to the doctor and get my blood work done. And today was one of those days.

She just called with all my results but two--my thyroid and my A1C(that is my 3 month average for my diabetes check up)

My cholesterol went up a few points. My trigylcerides went down 70 points but they want them down further. And my fasting for my sugar is 7 points higher than it should be which is higher than it has been which pretty much means my A1C is going to be higher.

I'd been keeping my sugar in check for the last year and the last few months I haven't checked it at all. Terrible when I used to check it 2 times a day.

Sadly, it isn't my body's fault....it is mine. We've been eating out so much and that is why my cholesterol is sky high. My sugar levels are my fault because I've been eating these **** girl scouts cookies. Fortunately I'm not one to make excuses.

So does someone want to go to the doctor for me on Monday when he yells at me?? OK so he won't yell at me but I've gone to him since I was in like 5th grade and he'll give me a stern lecture and I'll feel like I'm in 5th grade again....LOL!!

I had my bloodwork done for all that stuff today. I hope my numbers are good. I'll find out April 6...unless they call me sooner just to let me know.

That is good you have a dr who knows your history and still takes care of you since you were young!

I had mine done today and it was back today. I kept thinking if I was lucky maybe it wouldn't be back for my appointment on Monday. Guess that was just wishful thinking...LOL!

He told me he would give me one more try to get my cholesterol lower before he puts me on meds.....so I have to bust my behind, the next 3 months I guess and show some improvement!

It's amazing how fast they can get those results sometimes!

You can do it.

I hope things go well at your next appointment. Hopefully, you will not have to go on medication.

They only numbers he told me to change was the cholesterol numbers and I told him I'd bust my butt trying. And if in 3 months they aren't down then I'll be on meds. I only take two and I don't want more so I'm gonna try hard!
