Found out from the doctor that I am indeed mortal. Shocking eh? Fortunatly my soul is imortal but this body is just gonna wear out and stop at some point.
I have adult onset diabetes. I noticed I was having a tough time staying awake at times during the day. It did not matter how much sleep I had. Had a long set of tests done one morning on an empty stomach. I was told that loosing weight (I had balooned up to 280) would help and I was put on a daily medication and daily blood tests.
I got to the point were the blood test would only confirm how I was feeling so I went to weekly tests and then only when I felt 'off'. I added a couple of suppliments and a baby asprin to my collection of consumables and over time lost 40something lbs.
This week I go in for my first big set of tests since I lost the weight. As I was borderline last time I hope to be 'insulin intolerent' or better this time around.
My doctor is a pretty good one. He doesnt rest on his laurels and spends quite a bit of time reading the latests research and adopts them into his practice on a one off basis.
For instance he noted my 'bad' cholesterol is a bit high and that the Omega-3 fatty acids have proven reduction. So he recommended me look into Flax Seed supplimentals.
This versus putting me on some additional medication on a perscription basis.
I would like to get down around 200lbs. That was where I was in my 20's. I have about 50 lbs to go.
