High Urine...A D-Momma Rant

"Your A1c is good. Your thyroid is fine. Your urine is high. Are you supposed to have a 24 hour urine collection done?" Our nurse asked us and both of us were unsure.

My mind was reeling but I tried not to overly concern my son. He was less than worried. I was sure that there was not a problem but why did she say high?

everyone doesn't do it but it helps to be informed. Keep on hanging on. As you can see I try to find humor in everything to deal with my life. No sense in crying.
