Beer Ale Brew Wine Food Review Chat Suggest Discuss
It was suggested to me that I blog about my experience recently and I thought that was a cool idea. So here I am. If anything, My hope is to provide some things that other people may find useful.
As a fellow “Brew Blogger”, I have enjoyed tasting and posting my thoughts and opinions on brews I have tried. It has been great learning, experiencing and discovering all the different brews and flavors that are out there.
This came to an abrupt halt for me when a blood test revealed that I had a extremely high blood sugar and hemoglobin A1C reading. I originally went to my doctor for these tests because for weeks I was dropping weight without trying(22 pounds) and I was excessively thirsty all the time. These readings led to a diagnosis of diabetes. At this point, the type of diabetes I have has not been determined. I was immediately asked to abstain from all sugar, white flour carbs and alcohol. I was given medication to take daily and an insulin pen to inject myself twice a day. I also needed to increase my daily activity with more exercise.
I am currently adjusting to all this and have embraced the suggestions I have been given.
I will continue to add to my experiences as I go along …but at this point… I miss the brews.. : (
