My endo appointment went well this morning. Although I won’t know my lab results until the end of the week, I did get more out of this appointment than I have in the past. He took more time to examine my numbers and look over my graphs and charts. He viewed my report from my retina specialist as well. He looked in my eyes an insanely long amount of time (okay, maybe not that long, but it seemed that way to me. From what he could tell, he couldn’t see any swelling, so I’m super happy about that. My appointment with the retina specialist is in a month, so we’ll know more then, but otherwise, he wants me to keep everything the same as nothing really seemed to need to be changed…. except my morning BG spikes, but those can be explained by the wonderful thing called PMS.
Now, we wait until the lab-work to come back. I’m anxious to see what my a1c is, and I also asked him to check my Vitamin D levels as well. I know I probably need to be on something anyway seeing as how I’m both diabetic AND have hypothyroidism, but I’m curious to see what it comes back at.
One thing we talked about was my t:slim pump. Back in October, he had taken me off of it for an “undetermined” amount of time due to the unexplained highs (which I now firmly believe were cartridge-lot-related). Then, when the eye thing happened and since I had been using it for a week prior, I stayed on it until I met with him today to look at my numbers. And as far as he sees, there is no reason why I have to stay off of it. In other words, I can continue to use it if I want to. In other words,
….there are no words. Just happy dancing.
