Test Results

Somewhat to my surprise, the results from the blood drawn this morning came back this evening. Very efficient of them. They sent me e-mail and I was able to look at the results on their web site. To my surprise -- my blood sugar has been drifting upward of late -- my A1C (glycohemoglobin) level, which measures long-term blood sugar control, was down just slightly, to 5.3. The normal non-diabetic range is 4.8 to 6.0, so I continue to be in the non-diabetic range.

Unfortunately, the odd hours and distorted work schedule I'm keeping isn't helping me. I was very late getting lunch today, to the point where I was feeling dizzy (possibly hypoglycemic). However, I ate so much that my blood sugar shot clear up to 195, which is too high, and I simply couldn't go take a walk around the complex to burn it off the way I normally would in such cases. I will be so glad to get this project behind me so I can get back on my regular meal/exercise schedule.
