I had my appointment in November. Things are looking better but could be better. I seem to have misplaced my paperwork and can't get login to MyChart. emoticon

I know that my A1C was down to 6.5

I have my next check up in April

I just had my colonoscopy and endoscopy done and they both looked good. My Reflux was getting out of control so I have been seeing my Gastro doctor.

I had my in person appointment yesterday.

My cholesterol was 193.

Blood glucose read have been dropping (I'm back in the 100's) so I avoided insulin.

Blood pressure was around the 120/80 range. I was so stressed about my a1c that I forgot the exact number

New bloodwork in March.

I also just had my blood draws for my upcoming physical. Most numbers are fine, and I will get the specifics in a couple week.

My A1C went from a 7.4 to a 10.8 since March😳. That led to a zoom appointment and immediate prescription for metformin until we reevaluate at my appointment.

Kermie, I know we can both fix those numbers!

I checked mine in September and my Doctor said the results were good.
Cholesterol 168
HDL43 LDL 95 Triglycerides 150
Blood Sugar was a bit high, 130, but he said that was ok since my appointment was right after lunch. Thyroid was good too.

Seems like the majority of us have high cholesterol. Mine has ALWAYS been high because it runs in my family. With out meds mine runs in the 300's When I work out and eat right I still can't get it to a " healthy range" its on the middle 200's With medicine it in the 100's.

all my other numbers are good
VitaminD is now good that I upped my vitamin
Sugar is good range

I'm good with everything except the cholesterol too ... mine is 243.
I'm supposed to be taking a statin for it but I stopped taking it because it makes me stupid ... I can't think straight and feel like my brain is on slow motion :(
It's actually one of the main reasons I'm here again ... hoping to get the number down by making healthier food choices and getting more active :)

I just had all of my blood work done a couple of weeks ago. Everything was good except Cholesteral, your cholesterol should be 0-200, mine is 226 which is mildly high. Not high enough for medication, but need to watch. I was happy with this result, as I have dropped that number about 10 points since the last time I had it checked. I have to go back in 4 months to get it checked again, as long as I keep doing what I've been doing, things should be ok.

It is very important to know your numbers at any age, but I was told when you start to hit 35-40, it is REALLY important.

I had evrything checked back in September, but never called for the exact numbers. My voicemail from the doctor was just that everything looked good.
