Saw our GP

So yesterday we saw our GP. It was for a diabetic review. We also had to see the nurse, actually, the nurse is the one who did almost the entire review, the GP only came in for like five minutes at the end.
Two weeks ago we had bloods taken, we had a full CBC done. All of our bloods came back fine. Our cholesterol is a little off, but our GP said he didnt want to put us on meds for cholesterol, because he said we’re too young, he said he generally doesnt put anyone under 40 on meds for cholesterol. The rest of our bloods were good, and our A1C for the last 3 months was great. We’re almost back to being prediabetic again. He said to continue taking the glucophage for now and we’d look at it again in six months time.
As you all know our weight is an issue, we’re struggling with that, we always seem to be struggling with it. The nurse was really sympathetic towards us, as she said she’s struggling with her weight too and needs to lose about 50 pounds.
All in all it was a good appointment. I am happy that I am so healthy. Long may it continue.
