Staying focused

The hardest thing for a diabetic is follow your diet religiously. Any interruption of your normal daily routine can alter your health.

It could be a sweet dessert from a party, that could lead to another sweet dessert or candy. You may check your glucose levels and find a scary drop one part of your day.

I’ve controlled my glucose level quite well since being out of the hospital and physical therapy. My A1C has ranged 5.0-5.7. A few weeks ago my level was as low as 60 and I proceeded to eat some sugary candy to raise level back above 70 and it did. Before I checked the level I ate some sugary candy, a bit of cheating and it must have made my sugar level crash and burn.

This brings me to my last visit at the eye doctor. He said there was swelling behind my eyes. He told me that laser treatments could help correct the problem, but mostly watch what you eat. You can correct the problem yourself by not cheating or going off your diet often.

Listen, no one’s perfect. I’ve done a great job controlling my A1C, but the slightest deviation of my routine could cause future damage. I took this visit as a wake up call. I look forward to correcting this problem as much as I can.

I just wanted to pass this story on to my fellow diabetics. Never take your diabetes for granted. Stay safe and healthy.
