I decided to stop ignoring all the signs that I have some sort of blood sugar issue and went to the doctor this week. Specifically the Reproductive Endocrinologist that I saw when trying to get pregnant with Pixie. I wanted to see him, because he is the one who diagnosed me with Insulin Resistance and PCOS. I’ve been showing a lot of symptoms of both, along with what seems like some sort of Hypoglycemia.
The visit went well, he reviewed my file and is concerned that by now I might be pushing towards full blown diabetes (I can’t stop seeing Wilfred Brimley’s face whenever I say that word). He also believes I do have a form of Hypoglycemia. This explains a WHOLE LOT in regards to my diet, exercise and weight loss efforts. I’ll write more about that soon.
Tomorrow I will be taking a 2 hour glucose test and we’ll have a better idea of where I’m at after this test. I won’t lie, I’m looking forward to a few hours of NOTHING during daylight hours.
