In the past 3 months I've had numerous medication changes. I never had problems with blood pressure, cholesterol or sugar. I go for blood tests every three months to see if my Synthroid needs to be adjusted and the lab does a battery of other tests also.
Last year my blood sugar was 84 and cholesterol 181.
In April, my blood sugar was 123 and cholesterol 215.
Today, the results of my labs were blood sugar 124 and cholesterol 252!! I've been eating healthier than I ever have, salads, fresh veggies, fresh fruit, no white foods, low carbs, oats and other whole grains. I have not been eating sugar, I don't eat beef or pork, I've been eating salmon, and chicken or turkey if I eat meat with my meals, most of the time I don't, I get protein from beans or quinoa.
I walk for exercise and clean houses. I don't drink or smoke. I am totally clueless as to why the test results were so bad when I was doing everything right. I also take herbs. Cinnamon, Bitter Melon and Fenugreek to lower sugar, also drinking water that Okra has been soaking in. For cholesterol, I take Cholestoff, Krill Oil (highest dosage,) and Red Yeast Rice.
Was taken to the hospital by daughter because of dementia type symptoms while on pain meds for back and being a heavy smoker. Was diagnosed in the hospital with COPD and aspiration pneumonia. Was put on Bi-pap machine but confusion symptoms did not improve. Ammonia levels were checked and were in the 70's. My liver was checked and was fine. Was given Lactulose and symptoms improved every day. After being released from the hospital with new meds, smoke cessation, and ammonia levels in the 20's.. 5 days later my daughter took me back because of more confusion symptoms. Ammonia levels were back up to 45 and they gave me more lactulose to take home to use and symptoms have improved. So at this point it seems my COPD is under control but I am constantly worried about my ammonia levels increasing. I dont want to over take any lactulose because I dont want to mess up my potassium levels. So what's causing the ammonia to increase??
I will go to another room to get something, but while I am walking to the room that I need to be in I forget what I went there for
