Ok i have been real up for years and years. In may i was getting ready for a trip to Dublin and decided to get right with my self and see a doctor. The news was unreal and tragic. Type 2 dibetic and HBP, possible pancreaitus
Blood Work: May 2009
Fasting Glucose: 240
Total Cholesterol: 209
Blood pressure 180/110
I started BP meds but refused metformen as i love to drink beer, 12 pack a day.
Ok, then i started to think lets just change, i only drink once a week, six pack, no more white food, no starch, only whole grain, no refined sugar. I started having crazy pains all over, chest pain that took me to ER and then a weekend in the cardiac ICU, had a CT angeogram, IM ALL GOOD! NO blockages or any other drama even tho EKG said i had a past hart attack!!!
Now since the CT thing with contrast dye i have been feeling like crap the worst. 7 DAYS OUT as of today still feel crappy, i had blood work done. I have been walking a mile a day and the diet i talked about above. My DR thinks the tests are cant be right, but get this:
Blood Work: July 2009
Fasting Glucose: 110
Total Cholesterol: 158
Blood pressure 130/80 but can still go up to 170/100 if stressed out, on meds for now
But i feel WORSE, i have crazy pain, right now i have this strange pain in my face and neck, i think its from the BP med or that scary CT dye. The only thing not good is my liver has elevated bilirubin. I truly think all the pain and liver stuff is from the BP med or CT dye.
But to sum it all up, Why do i feel worse but the number say im better? Tonight is my one night to drink of the week and my blood sugar has been 123, the other night it was 78, all with NO meds. Just diet and exercise."
"Let me also add, Kidneys are fine no issues, they said i have micro/al of 5 points over normal but all other tests say they are fine. Im going form tests on them to see whats up.
Now as for some other things i would like input from others about, i would like to know what some people think about theses numbers.
My average fasting is around 120 i would say, some times its 80 some times its 130. Now i work nights from home and i decided to have some beers with my job, lol… Anyway, i have been testing like crazy as part of my new health regimen and i got a few high readings i normal never get when having a few beers. I some times have seen 170 but by the time i go to bed and wake up its around 100. Last night i got a reading of 191! No i do not take any meds for my sugars, just diet. So i stopped drinking and had a liter of water and took my trusty cinnamon pill, in 45 minuets its was 118. Why would this happen like this? I know sometimes 1hr after food im 150, 2hrs 130’s by the time for next meal 120-100.
I have been super more stressed this past week with my sister in town who can make me freak out, can stress make numbers jump? Should i start to investigate (LADA)?
