Two weeks and a second opinion later

Dr. Endo at UIC has decided I don't need radioactive iodine. yay. I'm all content with that cause it was something I really didn't want to do.

I had my quarterly followup in Chicago with the islet transplant team. My A1c was 5.9, a little higher then in January but nothing to be concerned about. I had two metabolic tests done one was an oral glucose tolerance test and the other a glucagon stimulation test. Many of you are familiar with the oral gtt. It involves drinking yummy (bleh) orange syrup and then waiting around for a couple of hours while they draw blood. Glucagon stimulation testing is pretty much the same only glucagon is given rather then the tastey orange gunk.

Anyway, my ogtt results were normal. At the last blood draw my blood sugar was 108. I don't have the results from the glucagon stimulation test yet. I could get it but it can wait until my next appointment in July.

I have to apologize, I've gotten boring in my current state of euglycemia and good health.

Have I mentioned lately that I love my islets?

I do.


btw, if you haven't already, check out the CellmatesOnTheRun site and think about supporting a runner. Good Karma dude!
