Well i got them back! Diagnosed on the 10/1/2012 at 10.2%. As of 1/5 i am now 5.7%. I read below 6.5% is good? if so im happy with that considering i do have to spike myself for exercise alot. Did a liver function, thyroid test as well as cholesterol. All checked out good, the only thing i have written down though is cholesterol. 4.2%, LDL=2.6 HDL = 1.1. Doctor said all is well. Have to meet my endo this arvo to talk about the results.
I also completed the half ironman on the weekend (well as a team, my mate swam, i rode and my other friend ran). Over 90kms i had to test on my tri bars on the bike, that was interesting! Wasnt going to stop, no way!. But started the race at 7.5, maintained that with a hell of alot of chews, chomps, powerade and gels over 90kms. Finished on 7 but quickly overshot back up to 10. I didnt inject because i thought it may come down fairly quickly. Well it took about an hour and a half but went to 6mmols. Keen to do the whole race next year by myself, but the swim makes me nervous with my blood sugar!
