I checked the Physician's Desk Reference. Turns my psych med can cause hyperglycemia.  :argh!:

So smack it down with some metformin.  It's like $0.05/pill, and all but two of the side effects are beneficial.

The two bad ones are: 

1.  During the first two weeks, 90% chance of horrible intestinal maelstrom, which is unpleasant.  I went through this, but didn't really notice a difference.
2.  Acid ketosis can occur, but if it doesn't happen within two weeks, it won't.  You will know it if it does, on account of high fever and the super power of puking 12 feet across a room.  This is very rare, but if it happens, you have to stop taking it, because it will eventually kill you.

Any doctor will prescribe it for hyperglycemia or diabetes, because it does about 5 good things for you and only has the above possibilities.

Metformin and lamictal do not play well together, in that it will cause metformin to stick around longer than it should. I'll talk to my psych about that, and maybe be getting a new primary care physician as the one I currently have fucked up the renewal for my lamictal.

Basically, if you're prediabetic, you have two choices:

1.  Treat yourself as if you're diabetic, and then be able to do stuff once in a while if you like.

2.  Ignore it and then never be able to have a beer or a piece of pie again.

Also, option 3:  You go blind and your toes rot.

Well the thing is, I THOUGHT I was eating like a diabetic because I was eating like my wife. It could be midnight baby stress. My whole life is stress.

Now that my wife is done incubating the spawnling and her blood sugar looks normal atm and that she's been told to stop her metformin and she doesn't need to monitor her levels, we have surplus strip. My fastings have been 113 and 116. I guess I'm going to die.

That's high-ish, but not crazy.

That's exactly what my MIL said.  :argh!:

Actual thing my FIL said to my wife: "You two read too much" because we were given a book by her fucking insurance company and kind of take the word of some doctors about what is currently consider DANGEROUS don't put your fucking baby in this style of crib. Like for fucksake, our son is literally half the size she was at birth and almost a third the size of her younger brother, so excuse us if don't our baby to be put into a potential fucking deathtrap just because they both survived it.

"You read too much"?   :crankey:

Right? So basically, our kid isn't sleeping over at grandma and grandpa's until I see their old ass drop-side crib is gone. Even though they said they's listen to us, it smells like "uh hu sure. It's cute you kids are being so overly-protective of your baby like all new parents."
Like, we have degrees and we are older than our parents were with their first children. We might actually not be over-protective of our 4 pound baby who showed up two weeks early.

Sad to say, after many years, The Frost Heaves have broken up.  No acrimony, just run its course.

I'll be curating and uploading various albums, demos, remixes, and the like over at http://frostheaves.bandcamp.com.

Current mood: sad, but resigned to it.

End of an era.

And I think the break up of The Frost Heaves is sending ripples through the universe as it took me several times to even type coherently.

And my doc got me worried about 6.1 A1c  :argh!:

You should be worried if it's above 5.7.

You can now act like a diabetic most of the time, or let it slide and BE a diabetic ALL the time.

Fortunately, since I got that result we've had to eat like diabetics anyways because my wife got the whole gestational diabetes thing.
