A number of people have posted about their current struggles with health issues and my prayers are with BudBent and BluesDawg, both who have been dealing with cancer. My prayers are with you guys and I admire your courage in the face of your challenges.
In the past month I have begun treatment for high blood pressure, which is under control and just last week started dealing with Type 2 Diabetes. The Blood Pressure is under control and this past Saturday I did a 20 mile ride with moderate hills and high temps. The day after I was just shot. No soreness, no exhaustion during the ride but high blood glucose. Kept well hydrated and snacked along the way. I have been reading up on Type 2 Diabetes and have done a number of searches on BikeForums and there are plenty of people cycling with Diabetes - Type 1 & 2. This is all new to me and I certainly have many of the typical symptoms listed particularly fatigue. I can get a full night sleep - 9 hours and still feel worn out the next day. I am certainly not used to it.
I'm not sure if it is the BP Meds or the Diabetes, but it is really quite irritating! Do any of you have experience with one or the other or both combined? I know I have read posts in the past regarding BP Meds and the impact that they have on your energy level. I have an appointment with the Doc tomorrow and would appreciate your input and suggestions of any questions that I need to ask.
For the record - I don't have a white bike DG. That could be a contributing factor. One never knows.
