So these last three weeks or so I have had this flu slowly creep up on me. Each week it gently engulfs me with a new symptom. I had to go to the doctors 3 times, to target a different symptom, from body ache, fever, runny nose, diarrhoea (which I got I am sure because of the antibiotics) and sore throat.
Since I had to go to the doctors for the third time, I decided I to go see my old family doctor, who has known me since I was 7, and who looks after my thyroid issues. His records showed that I hadn't had a blood test to check my thyroid for 2 years. And to throw in for good measure he also wanted to check my blood sugar levels….
Well today I got my results and my blood sugar levels are higher than normal….
I am extremely diligent with what I up into my mouth, I am gluten intolerant so I avoid all types of biscuits and cakes and confectionery, I eat a lot of fruit, veg and limit my carbs, eat only sweet potatoes, don’t drink sugary sodas and hardly eat any bread ( If I do eat bread its GF Bread) Yes I indulge sometimes with fries and chocolate but its like once a month or so (and really I am not kidding here) …so how the bloomin hell do I still have elevated blood sugar levels!
Its that dirty word again….exercise!
This time there is no avoiding the exercise, I have 3 months before the next blood test and I bloody well have to get off my backside and do something as I do not want it to develop into type 2 diabetes…
