Today, I went to go see the Diabetes Dietitian to learn what I need to eat. Seems kind of silly since I think I’ve figured out what I need to eat–and avoid–but I am satisfying my doctor’s treatment plan. This visit included also had to share what I had been eating over the last week or so, what my blood sugar readings were, have I been exercising, how much how often, and so on.
The prognosis: I could eat some more carbs–healthy ones, obviously–more green vegetables overall, and a little less fat. But so far, so good. I even had normal, non-diabetic blood sugar when I woke up this morning-100 mg/dl. I checked a couple of other times during the day. My numbers were 115 mg/dl mid-afternoon and 126 mg/dl a couple hours after dinner.
Clearly that’s only one day, but it’s a start. And overall, I feel better than I have in quite a while. I think I’m sleeping better, too. All of this has me feeling pretty groovy right now.
