A Right Royal Knees Up

Having a great week, the Diabetes Fairy is playing nice for a change!

Had my medication review on Tuesday and my GP is happy with my latest bloods, good liver and kidney function and cholesterol. Got my letter ready for Florida too which is another thing off the list of things to do. Less than 3 weeks to go now!! Apparently weather is going to be in the 80s/90s which is going to be brill :D

Consultant appointment on Wednesday was also good, my HbA1x has dropped from 8.4 to 8.0, not a significant drop but since December it seemed to have stuck at 8.4! He also said that he doesn't want to see me now for 6 months (instead of my usual 4) so I'm really pleased :)

Also found out that since my last visit in December I've lost 5lbs which I was chuffed with, as I'm not consciously trying to lose weight, just maintain. All together I've lost about 2 stone which I've kept off since diagnosis and I'm much happier with the way I look than when I was at school.

So to celebrate my good numbers me & Amy got a burger and chips from the local chippy and sat on the wellhead (local park). Sophisticated or what! ;)
Got home to find a mahoosive wedge of birthday cake from a relative so had a bit of that too!

Think I've finally figured out my lantus dose for leg site jabs, 24u seems to be the magic number at the moment. Waking levels are in the 5s and 6s which is much better than my previous 9-11mmol that I've been used to.. Had a hypo last night (3.5mmol) which pretty much wiped me out yesterday afternoon/evening, usually I need to get lower than that for it to affect me that much. I've also felt off when my sugars in the mid-teens, so I'm wondering if my body's starting to get used to the in range figures?

Hmm D is such a big ball of confusion!!

Enjoy your Bank Holiday weekends :) xxx
