Friday December 23, 2016 - Doctor's appointment - some Issues

 I could not get my hair out of my face. But I am getting better and faster with my makeup and dressing.

I had my six month appointment yesterday. I told my doctor that things were going really well and I felt great. Both mentally and physically, I feel that I am in a better place.

But I had two issues that he was worried about. One was that my liver enzyme level was out of line and that my A1C blood test results were not good. These results were from 3.5 months ago, so he added some new test for my blood.

I have been working on my blood sugar levels. But they are still 100% higher than they should be. I am going to try to get back into the gym and continue my strict and boring food choices.

If this does not work along with my oregano tea, then I am going to have to take some medicine to keep it under  control. I no longer eat any sweets or high carb foods. I drink only water. Its only baked/grilled meats, salads and certain vegetables. Yet my blood sugar levels are too high. I have a boring menu to choose from and its frustrating.

I have to see about this liver issue. My doctor will let me know the results.

I spent a few minutes talking to my doctor about sex. I do not like to talk much about it in this blog. But I wanted to talk to him about it. I stopped having any erections about 2 month ago. That is OK for now as I have other issues to worry about. I was surprised when he told me that many of his MTF patients use Cialis and that he would prescribe it for me, when I am ready.

I am going to spend the next 90 days studying Cialis and HRT before I decide what  to do. After 90 days, I will be back in to see him and decide.

So I have homework over the next 3 months:
  1. Reduce my blood sugar levels 50%,
  2. Read and talk to people about Cialis and HRT and
  3. Make sure my liver is OK
Always something to do, but that is part of the fun about living.

    I've heard that once on hormones, it gets much harder to get an erection. The body and brain are both trying to become female at this point, and I can see how Cialis would be prescribed. But don't expect this drug to help forever.
