The old waiting game

Hi everyone. We’ve all been there. Most of us have S.O’s that literally forget they’ve even had a medical test done. But not those of us with HA. It’s a perfect time for us to worry about the result; when will we hear back? What will the results be? We‘re miserable for days.

I'm in that boat now. I got it in my head that I had pre-diabetes despite a normal number 18 months ago. With normal results, US authorities say no need for another for 3 years. Yet I worried. Spoke to my doc. Says it is time for my lipids blood work any way (I never worry about that due to Lipitor) so what the heck, do the A1C too while were at it. He did say he sees no reason for me to be concerned, but....that’s little comfort to me.

I guess what played into this, at least part of the reason is that while I think I’ve done a pretty good job with exercise and diet in the past few months, this damn COVID has of course altered my way of life, and trying to stay up to the same levels of fitness and diet is more of a challenge.

Anyway, just venting. And the reality is that if I actually have such levels, these are reversible with aggressive diet and exercise. Eye of the tiger approach, which I know I’ll do, given my personality.

To all of my fellow sufferers, try to remain positive and sane. I say that and wish that for all of you, yet there have been times over the past 24 hours I’ve felt like I might literally lose my sanity. I know you folks understand that nightmare.

Bob

I’ve been worrying about having ore diabetes as well. A little back story here, not to toot my own horn but I’m in great shape (we own our own gym). Before I got pregnant with my first, I was in the best shape of my life. During my pregnancy, I ended up with gestational diabetes. I did not have it with my second baby. I had an a1c done last year and it was 5%. I’m still freaking out about the fact that I think have diabetes! I usually average 20k steps a day, plus I weight train and I eat very healthy. I weigh 120 lbs yet I still obsess over it, see how crazy our minds can work?
