PostSubject: The Disease Is A Silent Killer-I was checked and shocked !   Tue Aug 25, 2015 12:10 pm

8/25

                   I have kept silent lately for a reason for the last three months I haven't been
feeling well and last Thursday I decided I had to do something and since I couldn't get a
hold of my Dr., I went to Urgent Care which is five minutes away from me, I told them I
thought I had a Bladder Infection, they did a urine sample, the Dr. came in to see me and
I was shocked at what she told me: " You have Diabetes 2 , your sugar level in your urine
is 500, they took a three month test and it came back my sugar level reading was 250 ! She
put me on a drug called Metformin 500 MG, I have to take it twice a day, when I did a read 
out myself at the beginning my reading was 350 ! as of this morning it's 186 ! now I have to
get it down to 100...Also I have to eat differently, eliminate all the bad carbs, check myself 
twice a day.....I already lost 3 lbs Yeah !

                                                           Cheers............Joe...... Very Happy

Scarey stuff.  Great that you are following the prescription - sometimes a lifestyle change is enough and the meds can taper off.

             I just talked to my niece who's 48 and she told me my nephew who's 45
         has Diabetes, but he's way over weight, when he was 7 he had major open
         heart valve surgery plus he had a hole in the heart....

Dear friend Joe, Follow what the doctors have told you to do. I am sorry for your fear about it and the disease, too.  You are strong.  Believe it. You will be ok. Love, Betty

PS: Trump is an idiot.
Love,
Betty

Good advice from DK & Betty.  I think Betty's "PS" windup was spot on.

Today is a big day for me.  I'll know after the exam if I will be admitted in the hospital or sent home.  I prefer home, however if it is just a delay, then I'd rather get it over with.  If I return home, I'll be posting again tomorrow.

I was worried about you blood sugar, Joe and am very glad you are getting it under control.
Abe, Best wishes on your exam.  Will pray for you both.
