Week 010 – Day 065
PIONEER DAY!! As such, being that I am in charge of gaming, I need to be at our Church Stale Center early, and walking must wait today. That stated… I obliterated once again the 20,000 step goal yesterday. I must admit that it isn’t getting any easier and I believe my body is telling me it has reached it’s current limit. That, plus having a Gout attack in both feet now is truly messing with me.
I spoke with the program doctor via the phone, as he called me to let me know he wasn’t going to be in the office during the time our RN had scheduled me to see him regarding my Gout attack. I told him what is going on once again, and he told me the products should not have this effect on me, then asking for my Uric Acid levels… which I thought he knew. They are obviously high to be causing Gout to happen. I then explained I have not veered in any way from the program… and that I have complied to it 100%. I told him that Indomethacin is really the only thing that takes it away. According to the Dr… it should not. I am frustrated to the highest extent. I cannot do my walking program efficiently if my gout is flared, yet the very product I am taking is causing it… and the staff does not believe it so. That stated… if they are stating that, they must believe I am not adhering to the plan… which I am. This now leads me to think they do not know what their own product has in it. I was told that all their products carry the same nutritional values… and they have been good. I had been experiencing Gout from time to time on this program in minor form. When I switched from drinking the soups for dinner, and went to eating an additional protein bar instead… this is when my Gout flared up badly in both feet. There is no doubt about it to me as I have been dealing with extreme Gout throughout my entire body for nearly 15 years now. Anyway… the program Doctor sounded a bit frustrated speaking to me about this. I asked him if I should increase back to the two tablets daily of the Allopurinol he had reduced me on when I began this program, (a Gout management drug). He agreed, and told me to take the Indomethacin as needed, along with Tylenol. He also said I may wish to see my regular Doctor of 15 years now,.. Doctor Kan.
As I stated, while I am being spoken to, I feel like I am not being heard, or at least what I know is happening to me is not being believed. I truly have not cheated on myself or this program one bit. So how is my Uric acid up then?
At this time, while the program is great for almost everyone…. I am not everyone, and I tend to find I am the anomaly in all things medical. This has actually been medically proven in all cases that have had issues different from anyone. This is the same. (Big sigh). OK…I am feeling strong willed, and I believe I may remove myself from the program, taking this issue of my weight into my own hands once again. I believe I can do this now. I will let this Blog know my decision soon enough.
