I have been riding a wave of feeling good, looking good, and hopeful that my medical condition was about to get much better with labs on the table coming today.
I was terribly Disappointed with my doctor visit today.
- Yes, I have lost some serious weight
- Yes, I have been on the Keto Diet since the end of March 2016
- We added Edurant (HIV) medication (once daily dosing)
- And upped my Trulicity (dosage weekly)
My HIV numbers are stellar. Cd4’s are above 1000, but:
- My sugar test stick at the clinic was 20.7
- My resting fast was 20 on paper
- And my sugar number was 9.5
- My Triglycerides were high as well (they have been see sawing for ever)
It was obvious today, that the Harmonization Tests of both types of medication have Failed. Either the drugs are conflicting still, the dosage is wrong, or put bluntly, my doctor could not find an “on paper reason” for my numbers to be so, “out of whack” today.
With serious weight loss, and corrective diet, and reworked medication, a change should have appeared on paper, and didn’t.
My doctors had a phone conference as I sat there, when they decided to test me right then and there to check my sugars, by test strip. Which landed at 20.7.
I test at home and my numbers bounce from 10, up to 20 on any given day. Even if I have a restricted diet, and I am not putting bad food into my system and I am eating a restricted diet, the numbers should be working in my favor, but they are not.
Friends have said that I need to keep my head on and wait to see what the Diabetes clinic says at my emergency appointment on Friday morning, and not jump to any conclusions.
I might need insulin corrective medication added, or just rework my insulin regulation or they are going to change the mix again.
Some people, I have heard, cannot regulate their sugars successfully and need serious medical intervention. It seems I am at that point myself.
Stay tuned …
