PILLS PILLS AND MORE PILLS!
The doctor thinks my sore feet are actually damaged nerves which is a symptom of diabetes in some cases so, of course he said I have a pill for that. You just take it three times a day and it should take care of the sore and cramping feet.
Three times a day? Sheesh!
He also was not very happy with my A1C at 6.3 and so I’m now taking two pills at night and one in the morning for that. *sigh*
6.3 is actually pretty good, it’s diabetes but not extreme. If I get it under 6.0 I hope to be able to cut the pills back some.
I am still on the fish oil three times a day and two daily pills for cholesterol and one for hypertension.
Add to that my multi-vitamin and the pill cocktail is getting quite impressive.
The sarcasm is my hiding the fact that this pisses me off and scares me a bit. It’s also motivating I suppose…. I must make it so.
This crap needs to get kicked and soon.

Knock on wood, I don’t take any medications, but the pile my husband goes through every day is impressive…and a little depressing.
Dunno if this will help, but try taking a teaspoon of rough mustard and elevating your feet.
Do you notice any benefits with the fish oil? There’s a somewhat popular theory that cholesterol pills don’t do anything. Stantins I think.
It’s rather hard to say which is working and which is not, I have been on a statin and the fish oil both but yes one or both worked. When I first was tested it was so high they could not get a reading of the LDL, now it’s down enough to track and while still a bit high it’s manageable now.
