I decided to start keeping a record of my health and how I am doing with my diabetes. My husband and I have been married for 3 1/2 years and have decided we want to try to have kids soon. I have talked to my doctor about this and she really wants me to get my A1c under control first. I completely agree with her. But that doesn’t mean it is easy. My last visit, I was at 6.5% and this time it was 8.5%! Shame on me! As most people with diabetes know, its is a constant struggle to keep your blood sugar in check. I have a hard time because I like food! I also tend to go back and forth quite a bit. I do really good for a while, then I do really bad.
