What a Week!

Wow, I didn't realize it's been an entire week since I've posted. I've been so busy!

First, last week I wrote about my blood sugars going crazy. Well, the trend continued over the weekend so I put in a call to my endocrinologist on Monday and got an emergency appointment with him on Tuesday to talk over what could be going on. I brought some very detailed food/blood sugar/insulin intake logs for him since I've been tracking it for my nutritionist. After being unable to find any trends in my data, my endocrinologist's leading theory is that I've developed insulin auto antibodies which can bind to insulin receptors thus causing my blood sugar levels to drop. Fun stuff.

Anyways, because of that, I've taken this week pretty easy. I went for a few 4 mile runs, and I went swimming yesterday- 48 whole laps or 1.3333333etc. miles (at least...because, well, I lost count a couple...6+? times). I'm going to have to start thinking about swimming drills and speed soon since swimming that far freestyle is getting to be a little boring.

In the near future, there will be a few more diabetes related posts going up...q & a ideas that I borrowed from the Diabetes Social Media Advocacy Project. I will try to rotate between diabetes and sports though just to keep things relevant to all readers.

Finally, if you want to email me, it's This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Time to get ready for tomorrow's run.
