I'm not new to CK, but this week I was diagnosed as Pre-Diabetic, and I'm a little overwhelmed! I'm scheduled to see the Dietician and I'm supposed to sign up for a couple of classes to learn about diabetes, but looks like it might take awhile to get into one of them. What can/should I be doing in the mean time???
My A1c readings were 5.8/120. I've been on a medical whirlwind over the last 5 months trying to find out what was wrong with me ~ I've had eye issues, elevated vascular markers, elevated cholesteral readings, had all the heart related tests done, ended up in the hospital where a CT scan found nodules on my Thyroid (biopsied) ~ and really struggling with trying to loose my weight. On CK I had lost 45 lbs, but I've almost gained that all back now. I'm pooped and could really use some support from those that share this experience!
