My doctor took me off my diabetes medication Friday so at this time i have nothing to help me control my glucose levels.
The medication i've been on since the onset of my diabetes in november 2007 is damaging my kidneys as shown by overly high levels of creatinine in my blood work these past couple weeks.
(was put on new medication today-THE PHARMACIST SAID MY KIDNEYS WILL HEAL THEMSELVES)
So now, i have to control it with diet alone and check my blood 3-4 times a day.
The reason I tell you this?
Because this will be as big a life change as quitting smoking.
I depended on these drugs like a smoker depends on their cigarettes and uncontrolled diabetes will kill your organs and their function faster than smoking nearly every time.
Life is full of changes and sometimes you don't get to choose.
You can choose to quit smoking!
GET ON IT!
