I mentioned a few day ago that I was considering the possibilities of doing a few health related posts. The video included in this post has me changing my dithering. I am now definitely going to talk about health, mine and anyone’s who cares about what they chuck into their bodies.
OK, back to my story. A few months ago I went along to the Diabetic Clinic at one of the Dublin hospitals. I came away from that “routine” visit rather startled. My blood sugar levels were all wrong! However, the doctor’s words rather miffed me!
“You can see the trend… each year your numbers have been creeping higher and now your body can’t cope any longer. I’ll have to increase your medication. Take one of these additional tablets with what you are already taking and if your self-test numbers are not in the normal range within a week, then double-up and keep going like that!”
So began my quest for information. How could I make a difference for myself? All I say now is that I was lucky to stumble upon some truths all by chance. I can’t remember if it was a Facebook post or me doing what I do best… internet research. I will drag out the story so, for now, please join me in viewing this video. The 18 odd minutes you choose to invest may well turn out to be one of the best investments of your life. Yes, your life and the lives of all around you!
Take it from a long-term Type 2 diabetic who faced other health issues last year… you can make a difference!
I’ll continue with this series later in the week. In time, I’ll also share links to sites and publications I have found in my many months of research!
PS – Yes!! Those are my numbers… yesterday morning’s reading. I’ll expand on the topic as I go along.
NOTE: I will document all the information I share on a page I have titled Our Health. In this way you’ll be able to access the information easily.
