Endo Update

Yesterday, I had another appointment with my endo. We discussed the patterns I've been seeing with my readings, and he complimented me on being able to find these trends. He also said he didn't think it was possible to test as much as I do, I'm just a little OCD about it. We decided that in September we would talk pumps, after an A1c and other blood work. I think he feels that with just adding the Symlin we should wait it out to make sure I'm stable with one thing before moving on with anything else. Altough I'm sick of shots and I think a pump would help, I kind of agree, I'm seeing amazing numbers with a combination of the Symlin and finding the times where I start to climb with my blood sugar. So I have been able to curb really high highs with a quick preventative correction. The only thing is that it requires adding 2 more injections a day one at 1AM and one in the mid afternoon. So maybe that will be another way to get him to agree a pump is something that will work for me, since adjusted basal rates can eliminate these spikes. Oh yeah and I lost 5 pounds!!! Score! So all in all it wasn't too bad. So maybe that September appointment will bring a fabulous medical Birthday present!

I'm also very excited because I should be on the Diabetes Daily Headlines now!
