Diary Entry for Feb. 1 & Doctor's Visit

Today is the day I go to the doctor. Went out last night. Due to no exercise this morning, my sugar was higher than what I normally have.

Bk and L will be the same as yesterday. Dinner tonight is at mom's. Tomorrow's BK and L are at mom's. Then I am back home for dinner.

7:15 a.m., 135

I will update this later today on results from Doctor's visit.

10:25 a.m. Update:

Here is the update from the Doctor's visit. As for the HbA1c test, that will be done in 2 months. Doctor Bostick wants to see a 4 month track. My cholesterol is ok. When that test is done, I will also get my cholesterol numbers. Dr. Bostick also told me the ranges I need to be in:
Fasting Glucose Reading: 125-135, but if I can get it closer to 100, that is fine as well.
2 hrs. post meal: 150 or less, with absolute max 175 or less.

He still wants me to have between 45-60 grams carbs per meal. This is needed to make the medication work.

As for my weight update: Officially I have dropped 19 lb. since the last visit, which was Dec. 6, 2007.

As for my ideal weight goal: Dr. Bostick told me 230 lb.

So now my next visit is in 2 months. I go in and get blood work done - HbA1c, cholesterol, etc., and then come back 3 days later to talk to Dr. Bostick.
