I haven’t posted in quite a long time now. I still drop in to read up but I have been dealing with various things over the last year so posting hasn’t been a priority. Last Wednesday I had my bi-annual appointment with my dietician and diabetes nurse. They went over my latest blood work, asked about foot care, dental and eye care. I let them know I am keeping up on all of that plus losing weight and reducing stress in my life. When the topic of diet came up I refrained from using the term low carb but said I was following a modified Mediterranean diet and it was working very good at keeping my blood glucose in check. We also discussed exercise and whether or not I was on any meds. They did a blood pressure check and I was bang on 120/80. After some more back and forth banter the appointment was over. I asked when they wanted me to come back again. This is the best part...... they said unless something changes, they see no reason for me to come back. I was told that the way I focus on my overall health and to a greater extent, my diabetes, I should just keep doing what I’m doing. It felt kind of weird that someone with a progressive and chronic disease (as they call it) would be told that they do not need to be monitored anymore. I’m sure if I mentioned low carb or Keto, I would have gotten and earful from them. But since I’m on a “modified Mediterranean diet” things are just peachy. My last Hba1c level was 6.1 so just in the pre-diabetic range where it has been for about 2yrs now. My goal is to keep reducing carbs and get myself into the normal range. I’ve been doing omd plus some 5-7 days fasts so eventually I’ll reach my goal. I just thought I would share this as I found the whole thing amusing.
