So remember when I posted a few days back about how the other doctor had diagnosed me with gestational diabetes? Yeah, I’ve been testing my sugar four times a day since Tuesday. And recording the levels.
There’s no way in hell I’m gestational diabetic!!
Sure I haven’t gone crazy with any sugar since that day. And I’ve cut out the sodas completely (oh how I miss you coca-cola!!). But come on!
Now I am familiar with diabetes in general. My dad has had Type 2 for at least 10 years. I’m very familiar with the ups and downs, what could make me go high or low, etc.
But when you’re consistently waking up in the morning with a 65-75 blood sugar level and then not going above 130 an hour after eating…. Yeah, I’m just not buying into the diagnosis for me.
And I’ve eaten pizza, pasta, bread, McDonalds. Its not like I’ve been absolutely perfect. And I’m still getting what I consider normal levels.
Now that’s not to say that I couldn’t be borderline. I very well may be if I don’t watch what I eat carefully. But I think that to have me test 4 times a day is overkill and I will be discussing this with my doctor when I go back on the 16th.
Because my poor little fingers can’t take all this abuse!!
