I received a call from my primary physician’s office today wanting to discuss my lab results. I immediately freaked out since I was just there last Thursday. They called to tell me that my blood test results show that I am pre-diabetic! Freaking awesome!!! When it rains . . . it POURS for me lately!. . . . sighs . . As I was sitting at my desk at work I slowly started to choke up and cried for a few seconds. Then I remembered I’m still at my desk, so I decided to walk outside to avoid my coworkers seeing me cry. I sat on a bench for a minute and called my doctor’s office to make sure they communicated my blood test results to my GI’s office. My belief is maybe my GI’s office will take my concerns seriously if they heard the blood test results from my doctor and that she agrees that I need to get off the prednisone asap! She believes the long-term steroid use has caused my blood sugars to be high. I’ve been doing this FODMAP diet for 6 weeks now, I don’t see how my diet could be the cause. I expect to hear from my GI’s office by COB tomorrow, if not I will call again. If they are annoyed by me now . . Oh I’m just getting started!! and looking into finding a new GI.
Taking one day at a time . . .
