I have had diabetes for quite a # of years and two moves ago (in St. Louis) had a doctor who was an endocrinologist and wanted my A1c to be below 6. I was in my 50s At that time. Now, in my late 70s , I have a nurse-practioner who told me recently that below 8 was good. My eyes are full of matter which I wash out every day. I wear glasses and have regular eye check-ups. I have had ovarian cancer and a hysterectomy. Also little spots of breast cancer. I have no information about Graves’ disease. I do think I am getting arthritis but I am visiting a physical therapist next week, and I do admit that I like sedentary activities rather than walking,etc. I started the sitting trend after cancer surgery because I was afraid of falling. Just speaking up now because I feel tired all the time! Any comments welcome. PS Justgot put on 25 mcg of Synthropol before breakfast and it seems to make me more lethargic.
