For the past couple weeks I have been doing the yearly doctor thing, and test results are showing I have onset diabetes. So that is where I get the title “Lost My Sugar”. Seems like I gotta change my eating habits substantially and walk at least 2 mile a day ‘religiously” as the doctor put it. That won’t be as hard as changing the diet because in this lifestyle, we walk a good bit already. With some of the other blood work, the doc said my GFR was 2.5 times higher than what it needs to be and if I can’t get that a good bit lower it could lead to chronic kidney disease. Seems like all that is causing the pancreas to work overtime and instead of the sugars being turned to energy for my system, it’s being turned to triglycerides and fat. So I am now a pill popper hoping to avoid, as the doc put it, full blown diabetes.
Gee, all this because I was feeling tired and a little fuzzy thinking. Well, the second part of my title “Still have My Honey” is Gerri & I are working together to stop this and by doing so we will both be healthier. She is a big support in this and a good encourager. So, I still have MY Honey!
Sorry we haven’t posted for a while, but been kinda busy!
