04:57 pm - Long Busy Day
Since I turned 40 this year, I decided to schedule a full blown physical.
The actual physical went well, the Dr gave me the usual weight control chat,
but was sort of stymied by the fact that I am generally in good health.
She found I have high blood pressure and my blood sugar is 354.
On the BP side, this is surprising, as even under stress my BP is normal.
Even when I entered the Air Force, I had a 130/80.
A 354 fasting sugar means I have Type II diabetes.
Yesterday I had all the follow up appointments and spent the morning at
Kaiser (my HMO) going from appointment to appointment.
I came home with several bags of stuff, a BP monitor, a sugar tester,
the supplies for the tester, of course Rx's.
Started at 9:30a with the Doc, then a Diabetes Retinal Eye Exam, then the Health Education worker.
Got out of there at 1pm, did more searching for Xmas presents.
Then Chris and I went out to LotR
