I'm sorry the news was so bad. The A1c isn't terrible. That's got to work in your favor. Hang in there, Sue.
Thanks for your words. I wonder if half the issue is not staying hydrated… I love water, and drink a lot from time to time but then I go a few days without drinking much at all… erratic, I am, but I notice my urine is not cloudy on the days I drink enough for a camel to live a week or two.Sorry too hear of your diagnosis. There is a positive though, unlike stage 4 or 5, they say treatments can prevent or minimize further progression, can't cure or reverse it, but CAN prevent further progression.
I’m 73 now, and been diabetic since 2005. Last A1c was 7.2, GP is happy enough, given my dietary whoopsies (I wish asian food did not have so much sweet stuff in it, I’m sure it isn’t needed!). Anyway, I’ll keep on keeping on.I have stage 2 but I wonder if everyone over 65 has stage 2 or 3. Is it normal as you age??? I don’t know your age but wish you the best. New meds helping. Januvia and Metformin A1C 8.5 to 7.3.
So sorry about your kidney issues! I would have a real problem giving up salt.And no more salt. Gahhhh. Stuck between a rock and a hard place.
