Well, time is getting short, day 9 is done!
I had another good day for Day 9. Really not that much to report today, Day 9 was rather uneventful.
No real problems, no muscle pain, etc.
Today is a big day
Today I have an appointment with my Endocrinologist. It will be his first time to find out about my activities over the past couple of months. I last saw him on January 25, and a lot has changed since then. When I last saw him, my blood sugar was averaging in the 130 to 150 range, which he considered very good. Today, my blood sugar is running in the 80 to 100 range, even when I am eating! That is a big change in 2 months time!
When I saw Dr. Ho last, I was also using Insulin twice per day and using oral medication. Today, I am using no drugs or insulin, and I have much better control of the blood sugar.
Basically, today I consider my diabetes to be gone. We shall see what Dr. Ho thinks about it. I know he is going to be shocked, we just have to see if that is a shock in a negative way or a positive way. I know he did not think it would be possible. In December 2016 when I saw him, I told him that my goal was to no longer use Insulin by the end of 2017. I accomplished that goal on February 16, that was the last time that I used Insulin. He told me it was impossible for that to ever happen.
Tonight at 6 PM I will complete 10 days of fasting. It has been a rewarding experience and one that I will do again. I will slowly break the fast over the next 24 to 48 hours, eating only small amounts to re-introduce food to my body. By Monday, I will go back into my 23/1 IF routine, eating 1 hour per day (dinner) and fasting for 23 hours per day.
Tomorrow I will report about the ending of the fast, and on my appointment with Dr. Ho.
