So, I had my numbers checked at my last doctor’s visit. Technically, they were so close to the type II diabetes barrier my doctors has gone ahead and taken measures to get things under control. She considers the numbers close enough to diagnose the disease.
So, the first thing that is different: new medication, a weekly injection of Trulicity. So far, the only side effects are a little bit of nausea and a lack of hunger for most of the day. Oh, and the freaking pain of the needle entering my body.
Already, my blood glucose is lower. I feel about the same (aside from the nausea). Probably because my main issue is back and neck pain, and that has not changed. I consider those mechanical issues. Other than that I have not felt at all ill before the medication.
My blood pressure has been high. Hopefully, with the new meds (some other stuff specifically for that), the pressure will be coming down.
It’s all about my health at this point. Stand by.
