I have a frustration and a happy thing I wish to share.
Lets start on a high note not high bg
I have zero plaque in my arteries. At 42 and type 1 for 12 years that’s pretty awesome. It is because I have Cystic Fibrosis and don’t break down fats and proteins well so they don’t give me the sticky stuff. So there is an up side to CF.
Now the bad. Even though my BG is getting a bit better because of the CF I am having trouble putting on any weight. I am only about 3 pounds away from a feeding tube weight and it is really aggravating me. I thought getting my high BG’s down would help me but it has not. How is that possible? Was I mistaken thinking high BG was making my CF related problems with food worse?
Has anyone else not gained weight when they got there BG under better control? If not i guess it is just the CF which I will have to accept but I don’t want to.
Despite this I am happy I am endlessly hopeful so don’t feel because of my frustration I am also sad I am not just plain frustrated.
Be well and be loved I believe we all are
