I went to my endrinologist on Monday and had a terrible visit. According to the lab work that I had done at the beginning of the month, my HBA1C has climbed to 10.4!!!! I was so upset, mine has never been that high. I work out at least 3 times a week and watch everything I eat, so I don't understand what I need to change. My blood sugars are ALWAYS high, which is why my HBA1C is so bad. I was put on Symlin insulin a few months ago to try to help with that issue. I have tried increasing the amount of insulin I take at meals as well, and no matter what I do, my blood sugars are always high!
Also, my endo said that I'm in between Stage 1 and Stage 2 of kidney disease. I have no idea how serious this is, or how common. I also have to go back to get an x-ray done of my heart as my endo heard a "clicking" noise that he's worried about. I was wondering if you any of you have these issues.
I've had diabetes for 10 years and am 24 years old, so I just feel like I'm too young to already start developing these complications. If anyone has any information about what I could do to lower my blood sugars, any info about kidney disease, or the heart x-ray, I would be SO grateful!!!!!!!!!
