Health MineField

My health is a minefield. Sure, there should be mines of the Claymore variety put around Sam McBride, Jeremy McMinn and Wellington Addiction Services buildings just before they are due to arrive / leave on a regular basis. But this field of explosive and potentially damaging situations is mine.

Welcome to NZFiends MineField.

Mind your step.

Slippery when wet.

Watch the gap.

 

CONGRATULATIONS NZFIEND,
you have won your very own, brand new,

Prediabetes

For fucksakes.

BUT I SHOULD NOT EVEN BE TESTED FOR IT. LOOK AT WHO SHOULD BE TESTED….

WEB MD SAYS…
You should be tested for prediabetes if:

  • You’re 45 years of age or older.
  • You’re overweight with a BMI (body mass index) of 25 or over and have any of the following risk factors for diabetes:
    • You are physically inactive.
    • You have a first degree relative with diabetes.
    • You belong to a high risk ethnic group.
    • You have a history of gestational diabetes or delivering a baby that weighed more than 9 pounds.
    • You have polycystic ovary syndrome.
    • You have high triglycerides or low HDL (good) cholesterol.
    • You have had abnormal blood sugar tests in the past.
    • You have a history of heart disease.
    • You have any signs of a condition called insulin resistance (such as severe obesity or a skin condition called acanthosis nigricans).

But, there you have it.

      • I am 40.
        • My BMI is 23.55 – 182cm and 78kg (classified as healthy weight – obesity related diseases is normal)
      • Am active enough, considering back injuries, etc etc
        AM NOT LAZY!
      • Am not in high risk ethnic group
      • Not sure about heart disease, it works good enough..,
      • ETC
      • ETC
      • ETC

But, there you have it.

I am already on a low-carb diet. I already have to work on excessive exercising.  I already try to control sugar intakes.

ENOUGH ALREADY.

Maybe I will go get another tattoo done. That will fix it.
