Medical stuff

Doctor's Visit

First, I saw a podiatrist, which I didn't expect. This is a diabetes thing, since feet are hard to take care of.

My feet? Tired (so VERY tired) but in good shape. She gave me a prescription for a foot cream (to get rid of my calluses) and advised me to get an athletic style insole - NOT Dr. Scholl's.

Then I saw J, the PA. And was given a prescription for 50,000 mg of Vitamin D, to be taken weekly for a month and then monthly. My A1C is good - 7 - but not great. Yet. And my cholesterol is also good, not great. She advised fish oil. I need find a kosher brand. (And good numbers after Pesach? YAY.)
