So I went to the doctors today
To get a prescription for Chantix. The subject of my weight loss came up, I've lost 25+lbs in a year without doing anything different and he ordered some blood work.
It turns out that I have type 2 diabetes.
My blood sugar level was 550, I believe he said the ideal was 110. I'm still reading about how it works in your body as I pretty much avoid soda and adding sugar to anything, I eat fruits & veggies everyday and stay away from junk food (except for chips, my weakness!).
I've discovered the ADA website with lots of great recipes, the problem is I need to gain weight instead of losing it but I'll discuss that with him when I go back Friday.
I was a little freaked out but I've done some reading and I'm calmer now.
Anyone want to chime in with how they coped?
I'll be going to diabetes "school", he gave me a One Touch Ultra 2 tester that I'll learn how to use in the classes and he scripted 3 types of pills.
It's been quite the day...
