My diabetes nurse called me today, for my regular monthly appointment.
She automatically gets my blood sugar reports from my Freestyle Libre 2. And she knows I journal all my food, and when I eat it each day. After comparing the two, there was a long pause, and she said very clearly that she’s very worried about my current health.
I’m dizzy much of the time. And I get horrible sweet breath when my sugars fluctuate. And so nauseous. She said I needed big changes, right now.
I need to remove anything sweet, except the odd handful of berries. All snacks for the immediate future are to be raw veggies with hummus or tzatziki. Nothing processed. And I need to slowly get back walking as the dizziness passes (a week or so ago I was averaging 10,000 to 20,000 steps daily.)
I’ve got some work to do. Starting right now. I have no reason to believe I can’t climb this mountain. Right now.
