yeah, you gotta get on top of that. Above 5.7 A1C is pre-dibetes, and above 6.5 is full on diabetes I believe. I was tested earlier this year with a 12.4 A1C and over 300 fasting glucose. Doc put me on metformin and insulin (tresiba). I stayed on the insulin about 6 weeks, then he took me off and put me on Jardiance. I also cut out a lot of carbs from my diet (I’m a carb lover unfortunately). Long story short, I had blood work done two weeks ago. A1C down to 5.4, and fasting glucose 101.Health
Yeah. One bright side. Seem to have gotten my meds in order and the brain "fuzzy" I used to get is either a memory or I've gotten used to it. Lot less body aches. Seems my A1C has been high for a long time and they've been telling me, but my previous "doctor" told me 7 was threshold, so I was waiting to start on the meds. New doctor let me know 6.5 is close to insulin need and I should start taking the Metformin and get comfortable with a good exercise (and NOT extra fries) regimen. Okay. Doing those, and feeling MUCH better. Wish I'd known, but our doctor's office has made a lot of mistakes, especially in telling my wife she was negative for COVID that she died of a week later...

Wow, he’s alive. I thought the new girlfriend had you all busy painting and fixing plumbing leaks and working on her car and picking up feminine products at the drugstore.Happy turkey day!
I do have a life again, probably more so than I did before my divorce. My post covid/divorce life is like I passed through some type of portal into a new dimension where my life is completely different. That's a good thing.Wow, he’s alive.

Hope you enjoyed the holiday. I decided to throw caution to the wind with my diabetes and have some mashed potatoes and stuffing yesterday. Quite surprisingly my blood sugar remained normal. No clue as to how, but thankful for small things.
No one really knows, but you hate to find out the hard way. At this point it's pretty much a personal decision. My girlfriend is a nurse and she sees it all the time, it has taken a toll on their ranks.Having serious thoughts about going on band hiatus again due to covid. We were off for about a year starting in March 2020 when covid first reared its head. But once vaccinations came about and everyone got vaccinated, we started getting together again. But this Omicron strain has me nervous again. It seems that most of the people getting it have been either vaccinated or have had covid before. And although it also seems the cases are mild, it’s not a good sign.
Anyway, despite everyone being vaccinated (and at least 4 of the 6 being boosted), some do a bit of traveling. One was in Mexico a few weeks ago, one was in CA last week, and another is going to Aruba soon. So the combination of traveling and Omicron have me concerned.
Not sure if I’m being prudent, or a wuss.
Well, I pulled the trigger. No more practices for the time being. It’s not that big a deal. We only had two more practices before the Christmas/New Year’s holidays anyway. Then starting in Jan., the bass player goes to FL for a month and the lead singer goes to Aruba for two months. So except for the next two weeks we wouldn’t be practicing until at least Feb. anyway. By that time we’ll know more about how serious this Omicron is.No one really knows, but you hate to find out the hard way. At this point it's pretty much a personal decision.
