As most of you know, I have been waiting to figure things out about my new possible diagnosis of Cystic Fibrosis Related Diabetes (CFRD). Well, I finally had my first appointment with the endocrinologist on Wednesday this week, and I went into it incredibly nervous and not know what to expect. The doctor and nurse practitioner were very kind and knowledgeable about CFRD. They asked me background questions and went over all of my blood work and came to the conclusion that for now, my body is still producing insulin. It just can't keep up when I drink straight sugar like in the glucose tolerance test.

They decided that I need to start monitoring my blood sugar just to keep track of what it is doing. So, for now, I just have to check it once a week unless I am sick. If I happen to get sick, I will have to check it once a day. I go back in 3 months for another check up. If nothing has changed, we will continue with the same plan, and I will get to go 6 months in between visits.

Thanks for all the good thoughts and prayers! I think this is the best news I could have hoped for, and I'm hoping that we are able to stick with this game plan for awhile.
