Good morning! The doctor called with my lab results. The thyroid was good, but my A1c was terrible. It was 9.7. Any diabetics here know that is definately bad. I am to track my FBS and postpradial until I see him on Friday. I tried to get it down on my own but it just wouldn't budge. He has a couple meds in mind to suggest, and I hope it's a cheap one! My co-pay is really high on brand meds.

Cajun - Your trip sounds wonderful. Relaxing and romantic, putting that ring back on his finger!

Lucinda, I believe that all movement is exercise. It's better than being sedentary. I heard that "Sitting is the new smoking."

Donna, I agree with the article you posted, but my cardiologist will always tell me to watch my sat fat. I think starchy carbs stress the body and cause inflammation. I take a statin, but when I started taking fish oil capsules and exercising my cholesterol dropped even more.
