So the doctor called...

So the doctor called. I have been playing phone tag with her for days. She left me a voicemail on Friday saying that she wanted to talk to me about my lab results. When Amanda was diagnosed with diabetes, I asked to be checked.
It turns out my levels have gone up. I am officially pre-diabetic. I don't know how to feel about this. I'm worried because this was exactly what I was hoping to avoid. All my life I've been overweight, but relatively healthy. I've never had high blood sugar or A1C levels and I've never had a problem with blood pressure or cholesterol. 

So where do I go from here? Well, I'm still scheduled to see my bariatric doctor on December 7th. I'm hoping that I can talk to him and we can start planning a course of action.

I've been reading up on bariatric surgery and it does tend to eliminate type 2 diabetes. Some say you can never be "cured" of type 2, but I disagree. When you no longer have problems with you blood sugar levels and your A1C is below diabetic range, you're cured.

So here's hoping for the best. Wish me luck!
