I had to get a cortison shot for my knee yesterday. I knew my numbers were great — like 180’s for the last month. But it was a matter of being able to walk, or not get anywhere. I’ve scheduled knee surgery for May…that all said. This morning I woke up to a 437 — the highest I have ever had and even so with the cortisone and eating not so well.
I called the clinic, got told to stick to a straight low carb diet and drink plenty (LOTS) of water today, and get on that bike or in the pool. Later my numbers were down to 300’s and that’s around normal for after a shot. I need to get one more before the end of the month in the other knee…and then no more because of the surgery…they want me to be “normal” for at least two months before surgery.
so I freaked out, and maybe that’s what I needed was to have a very high number to get back on track.
What kind of information or treatment do you do when you get very high numbers.?
