My Visit To The Doctor For My Checkup


Wednesday, December 6, 2006


Excellent visit to the doctor.  I impressed the doctor again with how well I am doing. It feels good when your doctor tells you that you really look good.


He took a quick look at me and took some blood.  I went in to him a few weeks for a flu shot and because I was not feeling good and to get my flu shot.  He also ran an A1c test at that time and it gave me a score of 5.4  That is normal for people without diabetes.  He said that it was partly because of the medications I was on.  He then said that since I was doing so well and I said I would continue to do so, he told me to cut out the Metformin.  So within 2 months I went from taking 5 medications to three (for cholesterol, blood pressure and triglycerides) and hopefully will cut those out as well within the next few months.  I did not take my BG this evening because the number would be too skewed, but I will take it tomorrow evening when the effects of not taking it would be noticed, if any.
