I Guess It Is Official

I went back to the doctor last night with my blood results. Although, I could not find anything out of normal range related to glucose levels on the list, he diagnosed me as diabetic. Strangely, he did a blood test in the office at 7 pm and it came right within normal range. 

Regardless, I now have to take some little pill once a day, test my blood twice a day for the first week and then once daily thereafter. Today’s fasting test, when I first got up and before eating or drinking came up with 73. The normal range for fasting is 70 to 100 milligrams per deciliter. 

This will be interesting. After we return from vacation, he wants me to see an ophthalmologist and have a stomach X-Ray. I am not sure why the X-Ray, but when the time comes, I will question it further.
