Necessary Adjustments

I'd been eating better, walking more regularly, and was again losing weight.  My BP was excellent and cholestrol was good.  What's more, I felt good.  But the blood doesn't lie.  My A1C count which reflects the average blood glucose level over the last three months had gotten outta whack.  Too much fun the end of 2008/begining of 2009 and it caught up with me.  To say I was disappointed was an understatement.  So I've embarked on Diabetes Education in earnest now and I've added a new med to my regiment.  After the initial consult for DE, I started taking my morning/evening meds with meals rather than first thing in the morning and the last thing at night before bed, made a few tweaks to the frequency and manner by which I monitor my blood, received better instruction regarding taking the new insulin injections, and have added a brisk 10-15 minute walk after each meal.  Thankfully, the results are in the blood.  My daily numbers are improving, however it'll take awhile for the A1C to come back under control.  It'll get done.  I promise.
