Hiya. I'm really really gonna try to make this short.
So...finally, got all the lab test results back. And.....................................a big. fat. SIGH. Sigh because of course it's great news to hear you don't have celiac, and that you don't have the MTHFR gene mutation, along with not having any common food allergies, or any food allergies that anyone knows of, and that everything else checks out fine and dandy with the exception of high blood sugar and the ten kinds of trees that I'm apparently pretty allergic to. Great news, but a big fat sigh cause...now what. That's the $1,000,000 question. Well, this is the "now what" that my doctor and I came up with: diet and exercise to control my blood sugar (these doctors and their radical treatment ideas) and taking an antacid daily for my acid reflux, along with actually avoiding the list of foods I was given four years ago that make my reflux go crazy, which it has been lately, and which I'm thinking is the most likely suspect in this case. As for the trees that don't like me, well, seeing as I don't know an elm from a cottonwood or a birch, it's probably gonna be pretty challenging for me to avoid them. Plus I can guarantee their crap is blowing all over the place in this lovely Pasco wind. But doc and I didn't talk about those, so, that's on the back burner of my treatment right now.
So, besides a few OTC meds, it's diet and exercise. Really? After all the garbage, all the testing, the procedures, the meds, etc. it comes down to diet and exercise. Ohhhh, I get it, like being healthy. Interesting. I guess I'll have to give this "being healthy" thing the old college try. Watch, I'll probably try it and something crazy will happen, like I'll suddenly lose all this weight, or something bizarre like, have energy. Ha! Wouldn't that be something.
So that's my health update as it stands now on this here 4th of April. We'll see how it plays out from here. In the meantime, hopefully I can start blogging about interesting things again.
Spring Break....wake me up when it's over.
