Testing, Testing

And the result is? Apparently I'm just sweet, not diabetic. Turns out my thyroid medicine sometimes causes high readings on blood glucose tests.

And in a whopping moment of extreme irony, my husband, who had his physical the same day as mine, got his results back today, too. And he's now got a diagnosis: "Metabolic Syndrome", which is a name for a combination of symptoms including high insulin levels (and insulin resistance), overweightness, high "bad" cholesterol and low "good" cholesterol, and a few others. It's basically a pre-diabetes, pre-heart disease diagnosis. And reversible, we hope. But he's now on meds and a diet. Have I mentioned that he's been a freaking VEGETARIAN since 1994?

I guess I'll keep loving him too.
