I get to start a new type of testing: blood glucose levels.
My recent infection was the straw that broke the camel's back for me. Being ten pounds overweight, having sleep apnea, having fairly high stress levels, and a few other items led to me having a blood glucose level of 325 a week ago. I'm down to 270 today, but I'm still in the land of diabetes. It's especially scary since the last time my blood glucose was tested, it was 80.
Right now, it's looking like it was caught early enough that just "rebooting" the pancreas should be sufficient to get my bloog sugar back to normal, along with some minor dietary changes.
So yeah, it sucks, but such is life.
