I visited my endocrinologist last Monday and I just have to say this before I forget - I love how he handles his practice, I never have to wait more than 5 minutes and today was no different. I was literally in and out his door. When I got in, his previous appointments had just stepped out and were walking out and I went right in. Galing.
Doc checked out my (real) scores - I have to admit that I was sorely tempted to put in fake numbers a few times when I saw that my sugar levels had spiked up - and said that there was no need to put me under medication as I have my levels under control most of the time.
The spikes ? Well... I will just have to keep a closer watch on what I eat.
On a happy note, I don't have to go back to him again until March next year. I also need to take another glucose test one week before I see him, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll pass that test by then. I promise to be a good girl and watch what I eat and exercise.
On an even happier note, I just discovered a yummy meal that still gives me good glucose levels two hours after my meal. It's a Friendly's create-your-own meal and I like to start off with the Steak and Mushroom melt sandwich (which I just found out from the website today is NOT a permanent item on their menu, argh!), I skip the fries and pair the sandwich with freshly brewed iced tea and sweeten it with Splenda. I also get to have a happy ending sundae with 2 scoops of their no-sugar-added vanilla ice cream and a no-sugar-added fudge topping.
And let me end my post by declaring that we are on the last stretch! We should have our baby in our arms before Christmas.
