I don’t want to be a statistic. Nor do I want to be a story people tell: “He left a beautiful wife and five young kids. Kawawa naman.”
So, we move to be healthy. I took more blood tests today, and through Doctor Google and Mayo Clinic, a lot of my numbers are borderline high or elevated (as my nutritionist put it – very kind). I know they are high. And with a history of diabetes in the family, drastic changes have to be done.
Some good news. I took a blood test before day 1 and my Fasting Blood Sugar was 111.60. Took another one again this morning (more complete with other tests, I am not a blood test junkie) and it is down to 109.27. Not a huge drop, but it went down. And there must be a margin of error, but I’ll take whatever small gains I can get.
Here we go. I can do this!
