first and foremost, I want to send out a HUGE thank you for all the comments and support. I just became active on here 2 weeks ago and you all have made such a positive difference on my diabetes experience! I hope I can return the favor....many many thanks!
the past two weeks I have posted about not taking my insulin to avoid weight gain and my husband posted about my scary blurred vision episode. I am thrilled to say, that I had a GREAT meeting with my new NP,CDE yesterday and am headed full speed at getting my sugars in check. She gave my a carb to insulin ratio and an insulin sensitivity factor plus taught me to count carbs (my previous endo just started me on insulin using the very outdated sliding scale and was not very available to review my sugar logs and help me learn to best use insulin) I am testing all day long (even at 3am) and have a follow up appt in two weeks to go over my results. It is a lot of work, but I am optimistic and excited to get better. A little nervous about the weight gain, but I am not going to let it interfere with my health any longer (I'm sure there will be a "I feel like a super hippo"post soon, lol)
As for the blurred vision, you all were right. I went from such high sugars to better control very fast and that was the result. I am going to meet with a diabetic optometrist in a few weeks to double check everything is ok....very scary though!
As you all know, diabetes has it's ups and downs and I am happy to report that I am on an 'up' I am here for anyone who needs to vent or some positive encouragement, please don't hesitate to reach out!! thanks again and I will continue to keep you posted.
