While no-D day was a lot of fun and we got to learn others things about members of the DOC, it was far from a 'no-D day' off the blogs...actually it was Bryce's endo appointment day. So a very D day! Yet, I waited to blog about it. So here it is....
A1c 7.5 this is the lowest he has ever been since diagnosis (last term was 8.6 and I cried!) so I am thrilled and the endo is thrilled....however, reading about the A1cs of the DOC kiddos, I am going to strive for better. Anyhow, I believe this improvement is due to the fact that Bryce started his Dex cgm (continuous glucose monitor) since that appointment. We have a better understanding of how he reacts to insulin and food and made some major adjustments to basals and insulin to carb ratios. Guess we did good on those adjustments cuz our endo suggested no changes...wow!!!
Asked about testing for thyroid and celiac. Turns out he was tested at diagnosis (almost 2 years ago). I had no idea but he apparently tested positive for one of the celiac markers but negative on the other. Holy cow! I had NO idea....granted, at diagnosis, I was in complete shock and they could have told me he grew extra toes and I wouldn't have processed that. If they even went over these results with me, I wouldn't have had any idea what it meant. Now I know, and now I am freaked out. So our endo ordered to have the lab work done and see how it comes back. Crossing fingers!!!
Since we weren't anticipating a blood draw, we decided to skip school and go get a special treat. Guess what he wanted? Krispy Kreme donuts!!!! OMG, really??
Well, why the heck not? So off to Krispy Kreme for a ghost donut we went. And high bgs to battle the rest of the day!
