Brace self high A1c; past quarter so much 200, 300, little bit 400, lots of 175 pass for normal, barely saw 2-digits. Only hope is maybe pretty color combo for A1c synesthesia page. Was planning on 8 which looks pretty good w. everything except maybe another 8.
6.5: hey! Not v. much higher than last time and purple-red-black. How happen? Meter runs high, then calibrate Dex also run high?
Anyway, A1c good news. Phew.
Bad news: lost weight. (Guess normal for celiac, probably gain some by next time, nobody worried.)
Other bad news: Vitamin D deficiency. Is that normal for celiac?
ENDO: Nnnnno—not really. We just check for it because a lot of kids with Type 1 are deficient
BIGFOOT: Is that the one we get from the sun? Because he spends plenty of time outside
ENDO: And he’s not really deficient; he’s just at the very lowest end of normal, and we want it higher. Probably wears a lot of sunscreen?
BFOOT: Not since the summer. Really, I’m not that vigilant about it
ENDO: Probably wore clothes
Other part of conversation:
ENDO: Wow, so he has (counts on fingers) four! Autoimmune diseases
ENDO: Diabetes, Hashimoto’s, celiac, and psoriasis
BF: Ah. I forgot about psoriasis (<— barely ever had)
-silence while Endo send Vitmain D prescription–> CVS via laptop as if play doctor on The Jetsons–
BF: And I’m pretty sure he also has vitiligo; I’ve seen some pale splotches (<–overachiever)
Report from Yale: no teplizumab side effects (back of mind: placebo? Worst side effects allegedly at beginning of week 1), not even sleepy despite prophylactic Benadryl. Play frisbee @Yale, pizza man scold Joe for order individual slice after 3pm (@3:03pm), TrialNet study coordinator offer Jack football tickets w. elaborate snack access faculty club.
