Test results

Call from the Dr. today - test results for my Glucose Tolerance Test are in, and they are "not normal". *sigh* I think the blood sugar monster has finally caught up with me. Into the Dr. office tomorrow - hopefully it's "minor" not normal, as opposed to "major" not normal.

Scott, if you see this, please drop me an email. drneely (at) earthink (dot) net. I've been trying to get a hold of you for a couple of days, but I think my email address for you is wrong.

Reactive hypoglycemia, impaired glucose tolerance, type 2 diabetes mellitus...

Those come to mind.

Considering I have diabetes AND hypoglycemia in my family, I'm not surprised. I was just hoping to dodge this bullet entirely.

We're all supposed to be much more aggressive about the diagnosis and treatment, because evidence suggests that the earlier and more aggressively we attack the problem, the fewer the sequelae. So, if you're being diagnosed with these things, the sooner you deal appropriately with them, the less likely you'll become blind, lose sexual function, have amputations, have heart attacks, have strokes, or end up on dialysis from renal failure from diabetes.

I hope for the best for you, but if they've identified the problem, then go gung ho on treatment, because you'll be better longer for it.

Good luck. Better to know, though, than to suffer the problems unknowingly. *hugs*

Ouch ..... hopefully it is minor ... if there realy is such a monster when it comes to blood sugar maladies

Then again, I have been living with hypoglycemia since I was 16 and I turned out ok ...... I think .... maybe.

Keep us in the loop

Hang in there!
Good luck on your visit with the doctor Scott but it is not the end of the world. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes a year ago and I am on meds and everything is fine. If Sue hadn't made me go in for a check up I may have never discovered it which would have been worse. If you need to talk privately about this, email me at tomjeffers at rogers dot com

Good luck and good wishes to you, Scott.
