I posted yesterday that I had a bunch of bloodwork done. Everything was good except my fasting blood sugar after 12 hours was 107, and my cholesterol was 210 with triglycerides at 197.
Yes, I have been googling. I know bad. But those high trigs really have ne scared. I have all the factors for metabolix syndrome. High blood pressure, high trigs, smoking, an apple shape where my weight is all in my stomach.
I started today with no sugar in my coffee, and no sweet tea at all. Just coffee with half and half, and seltzer flavored water. Lunch was a banana with roasted chicken breast meat. And Chicken, brown rice and carrots for dinner.
This morning a had my coffee with no sugar and a few sips of orange juice to take my iron. I tested my blood sugar two hours later and it was 89.
I am going to test it again soon because I ate dinner an hour ago.
I feel like I am falling apart at 45. To many health issues for me to deal with. I really feel like I am going to drop dead of a heart atack according to the websites. Trigs are one of the most important tests and alon with my HDL reading the ratio was like 4.123 and it should be under 4. Preferably under 2. And it said "HIGH RISK".
I called and left a message for my primary care Dr. and of course she doesn't call me back. I did not get my results from her, I got them from my hematologists office since I had an iron panel done, and the blood tests that my primary care Dr were done at the same time so that office just gave me the results. So I am sure she hasn't even looked at them yet. I hate that they don't call you back.
I just want to live my life. Eat what I want, drink what I want. I hate all these restrictions, and having to worry about how many carbs I am eating or how much sugar is in something.
I hate all of it. But I want to be around a long time. It just isn't fair. My husband can eat whatever he wants and he takes no medications. I hate it. I'm scared, it is depressing, and it is going to take over my life. Just like my iron does. Now I have this to add to my list. Sometimes I want to bury my head and never emerge.
And, on top of all this, I KNOW she is going to order a A14C test, and another fasting Lipid profile. And if she orders them I have to wait 7 to 10 days for results. I cannot stand waiting. Otherwise, if I could know that day, I would do it. But I am going to be consumed with worry once AGAIN waiting for more results. It was bad enough with my iron. Now I have to deal with all this junk now. I hate being 45. I hate that my body is going through "the change" as that is driving me nuts as well. And to top it off, I cannot even have a darn drink to calm me down.
I had to vent. Thanks for listening,.
