Then there was the diabetes diagnosis. My triglycerides have always been higher than normal. Since the chemo, nothing has seemed to phase the counts. With my April cholesterol check, the counts were high enough to trigger the diabetes switch. In reading about diabetes and talking with my doctors, I decided that the best thing I could do to prevent the increased blood sugar was to increase my physical activity. Working on clearing my land every day would be a great way to increase my physical activity.
