Today I received the results of my blood sugar. It seems that although my cholesterol is abso-smurfly awesome at 142 (high for me, I’m usually at about 99) and I don’t have lyme disease or Mono (again), I do have a teensy problem with my blood sugar and hemoglobin, and therefore have to submit to more blood tests. Thursday I’ll have a fasting glucose test and get tested once again for Anemia, just to be sure it isn’t a fluke. I’ve been borderline anemic since about a year after Bugaboo was born (I bled so much after he was born that it was 4.8. And somehow I survived.) and I’ve had to have many blood sugar tests due to slightly high results. Since I have family members that are diabetic, I am not surprised by this. I am also not concerned, since they have type II and I do not possess one risk factor…But I do have many symptoms and have for years. In fact, I have been told I’m prediabetic, even though I exercise, eat well, take good care of myself (mostly) and am at my goal weight.
