I had my routine 2 week endo appointment
and things are going well.
So far a little spike in my required insulin needs,
but nothing my trusty pump can't handle.
My A1C is heading where my lovely endo wants.
Last time it was 5.2
and she was happy with it, but didn't like how many lows
I was still having.
It is now at 5.3 she was happy with it,
I on the other hand wish I felt
like I am seeing consistent numbers to defend why I am still this low.
I guess I am just too hard on myself,
but whatever i can actually control with insulin
I don't care about the number,
I just want her a healthy weight and
After than appointment, I then saw my
new OB, who I REALLY
He's helpful, comforting,
is overall very calming.
The one thing I feel like I've lacked in my doctors, other than my
is that they really seem to forget,
I'm a person, too,
with feelings, with emotions, with worries
with serious concerns
and that actually take the time to listen to them,
give advice, helpful advice
and understand that this is the first time I've had a child,
and obviously need professional help from them.
This new OB is answering all my questions,
Like my need to find a great pediatrician
so we can ask them about
going gluten free for Elia,
and anything I can do to help possibly
Type 1 if we can.
to how my test results came back and what we are going
to do about my liver and what is happening with it now.
For those of you who don't know,
we don't know exactly when or why,
but last summer my doctors found that
I have a enlarged Liver, and also having
big numbers for my
liver enzymes AST and ALT.
They would presume it is NAFLD,
which is Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease,
possibly caused by Cholesterol.
So after knowing this might take years to fix,
(we tried fixing this however my liver enzymes continued to rise
very much and had really abdomen pain)
So to fast forward,
in my doctor appointment with my wonderful
he told me he got my results back
and it came back
Some how, my child bearing ways,
or PURE LUCK
I now have low AST and ALT enzymes
within the normal ranges.
I couldn't believe it.
I have heard this over and over again
all the complications
liver disease and have
especially when pregnant too.
Well, I'm happy to say, I am down one
bad scary diagnosis
and only have
the D- MAN
to now cure.
which.... I'm just happy I have nothing else on my plate.
So YAY for no more liver concerns, or problems.
I still don't understand how I'm cured but I hope
it stays around for a
