I can't even remember the name of what I have for very long. Anyways, my gallbladder has a bunch of stones in it (probably it had a bigger one that was hurting and I'm in less pain because the big one is now in pieces). Also my gallbladder is inflamed and at risk for infection. My endo wants me to have it removed. He isn't sure about how urgent it is. I have a Monday morning appointment to talk to the surgeon that the endo recommended. I hope the surgeon will let me direct my diabetes care, is comfortable with queer people, is familiar with adrenal hyperplasia, and is great with gallbladder removal. Any comments from diabetics whose gallbladders have been removed on what that does to diabetes would be appreciated.
My blood sugar currently is vaccillating wildly. I don't think it's been this bad in over two years. I hit the 30s and the 290s today, and it wasn't even a rebound or correction- the 34 was in the mid afternoon, when I maybe had a little bit of lunch novolog on board, and the 290 was in the evening out of nowhere.
Lee sent me three multiclix and some drums. After using the softclix for a month, I am very grateful for the multiclix. I keep expecting the sharp stab of the softclix and in comparison the multiclix does not hurt at all. I keep not even feeling the prick. I love the multiclix! Thank you, Lee.
Some crazy stuff is happening with insurance re:CGMS coverage. The rep still thinks that I'll be able to get coverage within a month, but I may need to wear an iPRO to prove that my blood sugar does indeed fluctuate. If I do, Medtronic will pay for the one time use of the iPRO, since my doctor doesn't use an iPRO. My rep is hoping that as a pre-existing Guardian user, I won't have to wear an iPRO. After speaking to my rep, I read a rumor that only people 25 and over will be covered. Aaeee! I'm 20. I think the rep knows that, but maybe he doesn't.
