I returned home from my visit to Minneapolis on Tuesday evening. On Wednesday, I got a phone call saying that my drug levels were too low and I needed to make a significant increase in both.
Unfortunately, the increase has caused me to practically start over with the adjustment period with the new drugs. I was tired, nauseated, and had a terrible headache. By Friday, the nausea was bad enough that I was afraid I might have to leave work, so I called and spoke with Dr. Bellin. She suggested trying Tums. I did and they worked surprisingly well. It got me through the day and has helped me get through the rough spots.
I have been slowly getting better as the days go by, but my stomach still bothers me a lot. I am hoping that time will help me get through this as it did before. It is easier the second time around. I don't have the fear that this might be permanent like I did before. I also know from the bloodwork done at my visit that I am not dehydrated or out of synch in my body chemistries.
The good news was that my C-peptide numbers were great. My fasting was 1.27 and my postprandial was 5.29.
More evidence that my cells are happy with these crazy new drugs.
