MUCH better than I thought

My A1c is back, 6.5% which is so much lower than I expected considering I've been terribly off track.

I was a naughty patient and checked off Cpeptide on my lab slip. I wanted to see where my pancreas is at.....results showed 0.00, zero, nada. Bummer. Sometimes I really convince myself that this life wont be forever. I cant deny the numbers I guess. I also checked off T3 T4 and TSH because my Endo didnt this time around. My Thyroid continues to be "off" leaning towards Hyperthyroidism, but not enough to medicate. I bed to differ. There is a normal "range" for a reason....because everyone is different. Why do I have every symptom of hyperthyroidism with an "off" lab result and it isnt going to be treated? Hmmmmm....I'll have to do some research.

Congrats on the A1c! Maybe it's not been as bad as you think! Looks like you're doing a great job to me! Tell your endo to keep her trap shut! Hee hee!

Yes kelly every woman over 40 has problems with her thyroid . I was told once you are treated you must stay on the meds that is not true . good luck with getting all the thyroid mess straightened out and good job on the a1c . kuddos to you .
