    Worried Wednesday 

    Worried Wednesday

    It’s so difficult not to worry especially when our children are having
    health issues. It’s Andy again who needs prayer. He has been diag-
    nosed with Type 2 Diabetes. I never knew anything about this and
    still know little about it. His body is holding onto the sugar and won’t
    release it, not even through the kidneys. He hasn’t been well for some
    time now and mostly just laying around the house.

    Tomorrow, Thursday, he will have the test which scares me. I don’t
    understand the reasoning behind it. He will drink about 4 ounces of
    glucose and it could result in coma or death.

    He has no appetite and had not eaten all day the afternoon he had
    blood work for this. His Glucose 136 (normal 70-100)
    His Insulin was 26.5 (normal 2.9 – 10.1)
    C-Peptide 5.5   (normal  0.8-3.1)
    AST ( SGOT )   13  ( normal  0.8-  3.1

    I hope someone can enlighten me on this disease. He told me that his
    Dad has this as well so I wonder if it’s hereditary. My first thought was
    that one of his medications is too blame.
    I will post as I know the results of this test.

    I sure need the sunshine today, don’t we all. I hope you all have sunshine
    today and are most Blessed.

      Dear GGB
      I can really understand your worries and concerns about Andy, but believe me Type 2 Diabetes is a lot more common than you think.
      My Mum was an insulin dependent diabetic, and she lived until she was 82.
      Two of my Sisters have Type 2 diabetes, one of them is on medication, the other one is diet controlled. All of them lead perfectly normal lives. The main thing Andy will have to do is watch the carbohydrates he consumes. Not all carbs, but those which contain sugars. Most foods these days have a nutrition information list on them and you just have to take note of the item that says” Carbohydrates” and just underneath says “of which sugars” this is the one that has to be counted. Andy will be told how many he has to limit himself to. Another really important thing is exercise. I don’t mean “pumping iron” or anything like that. Just a nice walk will work wonders..
      Please try not to worry yourself, the control of this disease has really improved these days.
      I hope I have helped a bit.
      Love Marjie x

        Hi, Marjie, thank you for your informative comment. I just never knew anything about this, but through comments I”ve received, I feel so much better about it. I myself plan to go by the guidelines for this disease.
        I hope things are looking up for your Dad and your family.

      Hi GreatGrannyBee,
      I’m sorry to hear about Andy. I know people who have Type 2 as well and they lead very normal lives. Even my old cat Basil had diabetes and had to have insulin shots every day and lived a normal long life, (15 years which is above average for a cat especially on top of his kidney disease and hyperthyroidism as well).
      Diabetes can me managed quite well with proper diet and excercise, medicine has come a long way, so please try not to worry to much. I’m sure once Andy has been prescribed the proper regimine for him, he will catch on and start to feel better and do well.
      I’ll keep Andy in my prayers. hugs x
