Had a Scare Today

I’ve been a Type 2 diabetic for several years. However, I’ve been able to keep my A1C around 6.2 and my numbers pretty constant. Lately I’ve noticed my numbers are much higher in the morning.

I’m not diligent with testing like I probably should be. The doctor told me a few years ago I only needed to check once or twice a week. I also know I haven’t been eating too healthy since the pandemic began and now that inflation is so high, I’ve been buying a lot of pasta and grains to help keep costs down.

I saw my doctor for my 6 month diabetic check this morning thinking all was good. I’ve been feeling great. This evening I received the test results. My A1C is at 6.9 which is a BIG jump in 6 months and the highest it has ever been! This shocked me.

Like the time I was first diagnosed, I’m admitting to myself that I have an incurable disease and only with God can I get my numbers back in line. I must remember all the time this is a silent disease and is not good for my heart disease either.

Tomorow I’ll be cleaning out the pantry and refrigerator and starting to eat more fresh vegetables and fruits. No more of the grains and pasta and bread. I know I can turn this around with God. He tells me all things are possible with Him.

If you feel led, I sure would appreciate your prayers in support.
