Had the last of my yearly medical visits. Dr was satisfied with my numbers except my trigylcerides were up and the good cholesterol was down a point or two. I blame that on the lack of exercise as I pretty much stayed in the house most of the winter. Trying to get back into exercising and its sort of ebbing and flowing a bit.
Had my mammo, and no problems there.
Last Friday was the eye doctor visit, and had to see a different doctor. He says there is absolutely no evidence of any diabetic effect on my eyes. So that was good. BUT he did say he sees evidence of early cataracts and thankfully they do not deal with them like they used to. I remember in the past older family memembers and others talking about the doctors not doing the surgery until the eyes were "ripe" or something like that. BUT that basically meant not until you could barely see. He said to come back and see him when I get to the point that driving at night becomes hard to do. My eyes are a bit worse, and he says since my eyes are so bad that does increase the risk of the surgery(he says being diabetic would not be a problem at all). He also said they probably would not be able to totally correct my vision but they could bring it much closer to normal than what it is now. IT would be great to not have to be careful exactly where I put glasses at night. also be great not to have to worry about where to put the glasses if I go in a pool. Sadly I did find this more upsetting I think than even being diagnosed diabetic a decade ago!
