My cholesterol isn't any better without drugs. And a prescription for something has been called in.
My blood sugar was a little high, they want to retest that. I figure I'll do that when I go in to have that mole on my back removed.
I read up on blood sugar and what will help bring it down is exercise, which is hard to do when it's so MISERABALLY hot. It's not alarmingly high, it's at the pre-diabetic stage, but I don't want diabetes. And I know I've been slacking off on normal everyday chores that would keep me moving. I hate this heat, it's been hot all summer long.
Not horrible awful news, but not great news.
And my arm hurts from that shot. The pertussis/tetanus shot. It also had a vaccine in it for diptheria. From Wiki-pedia:
"Historically quite common, diphtheria has largely been eradicated in developed nations through widespread vaccination. In the United States, for example, there were 53 reported cases of diphtheria between 1980 and 2000, but in the 21st century only two cases of diphtheria have been reported, the last of which was in 2012."
And we wondered if maybe this was just leftover vaccine? Seriously, it doesn't look like we're at big risk for getting this.
My arm hurts.
