Did I mention that I can't drink Coke anymore???
My CF team is out of town at a CF conference. So, I've been kind of figuring out this diabetes thing on my own for now. My numbers are not THAT high that I have to worry (and I HAVE talked to a nurse at the clinic who is covering the phones... (however NOT to be mean, but I think that I answered most of my questions for her and I think she was pretty clueless to begin with). She suggested that I (a) start testing my blood sugars regularly... fasting and pre-meals (DUH) and (b) that I avoid any of the "bad" foods... (again... REALLY??? Y'THINK? DUH). I am pretty sure that my bitchiness and cynicism have been impacted by my higher levels. I'll catch up with the dietician when she gets back next week and I think I'm scheduled to be in clinic anyway the following week for a quarterly visit. Let the games beGIN.
