I am in the process of getting a new doctor and had my suspicions I was diabetic so I got a meter and started testing. My first reading was 445.
I stay between 275 and 350 all the time. I have been eating only meat and veggies for three days, had a bowl of whole grain cereal and it has spiked to 462 just now.
I am weak, panting, getting a migraine and dizzy. I don't have a new doctor yet and I am not diagnosed - I don't know what to do. I am drinking lots of water but wonder if there is anything else I can do???View Thread
Well saw the doctor today. With the food and blood sugar reading log I had been keeping she said she knew I had it . Crap. So I had blood tests done too. She put me on metformin - but we knew she would do that. I will see how I progress. Thanks for you help everyone you really helped me through this!View Thread
Oh and I spent the last two years steadily losing 60 pounds through changing my diet and eating better, not exercising really but being more active (walking the dogs in the park, etc), so I am now 5 pounds into my ideal weight zone. I want to lose another 20 but they are the hardest! Really irks me that I do all this to get healthier then this happens!!!View Thread
Thanks - feeling bad for having ignored it as long as I did - I have an apt for 9:30 tomorrow morning! I will let you all know how I did! Oh and I drank three bottles of water and got it down to 401. The worst symptoms stopped. I took a small walk and got it down to 236 by the end of the night! I am going to go get an A1C test meter today if I can find one too. I want to be prepared!View Thread
