10/23/2012 Well, my blood sugar level was really bad, over 500 at the doctor's office so he got me onto insulin right away and I have to check it every 6 hours and then do insulin as he told us to do. The 9 p.m. reading was around 250 so we are doing good and he said once we get it to normal we can stop the insulin and I probably will not have diabetes at all so that is a very good thing! If I can I will be doing another blood glucose at 3 a.m. and see what it is then and by the end of the week he expects me to be in the normal range. Much relief for me! Hugs and flowers to all of you!

Lee haven't been able to comment for a long, long while. Want you to know I have been following you and reading your posts. Keep doing as the Dr. advises and I hope for the best for you. I have a diabetic daughter and she controls hers with pills and her diet. She inherited hers but from my experience I will not be surprised if one day she is on insulin. She is 55 and does love to eat what's not good for her. Keep up the good work/Lillian

Thinking of you and hoping & praying that sugar level stablizes very soon.

OK Deb, I redesigned this to make it a 4x4. Hugs n love, Meg

by holly12 25 Oct 2012

That's a really high glucose level. You're lucky you didn't pass out. Glad to hear they think they can get it under control & you won't need the insulin, but hey if you do there are a lot worse things that can happen. Right? Hugs & many prayers being sent your way. Arlene

So far I am still reading between 250 and 415 so I have to adjust how much insulin I take every 6 hours till we get it to normal stages for several readings in a row. This is not easy!

momhome by momhome 27 Oct 2012

No it is not easy. And with your being this high you definitely need to keep a close eye on it. Once you get it to normal you still need to watch it.

by hightechgrammy 25 Oct 2012

Hi Deb, blood sugar can be really hard to control, especially if you enjoy eating - LOL. I have Type 2, so I know those needles all too well. Just keep an eye on it and remember that insulin is your friend. How are you feeling other than that??? Hugs and prayers, Jan

My hubby has type 2 also, for many years now.

by susiesembroidery 25 Oct 2012

Happy for you to be able to control this sudden increase of bloodsugar. Hope it is not a recurring thing. All the best to you. My prayers are still up for you.

by jrob Moderator 25 Oct 2012

Sheesh! What happened to cause that? I'm glad that there is a quick solution! Hugs for you. ;)

leenova54 by leenova54 26 Oct 2012

The steroid that was for pain in my hip did all of this, caused the fall, vision changes, foggy brain and more.

momhome by momhome 27 Oct 2012

Oh no. I am glad that you told us what caused all this. I have been thinking about you. I was very concerned. Please take care. The steroids are sometimes a necessary evil. In your case they were more evil then necessary. Please, please take care of yourself.

by petdenhan 25 Oct 2012

good luck and hope you feel well soon.....x

by crafter2243 Moderator 25 Oct 2012

I hope you are getting your sugar level down to where you will no longer need the insulin. Thinking of you often.

by kiffuri 24 Oct 2012

Good news, Debra!

by eyeztodiefor10 24 Oct 2012

Debra, so glad you're getting control of this. I don't understand about not needing the insulin after this but I'm not very familiar with Diabetes. I pray things continue to go right and you manage your sugar level. I'll keep you in my prayers!

by shuede 24 Oct 2012

Debra, my friend going through chemo had a similar experience with her blood sugar. She had to stop the chemo after two treatments because of other horrible side effects, and her blood sugar returned to normal.
Since reading your posts, I think of you often and send positive, healing thoughts your way. ((Hugs)) Denise

During chemo it wasn't this high but I've been off chemo for a couple of months now.

by meganne 24 Oct 2012

Good heavens woman! What have you been eating?
Slabs of chocolate cake with chocolate icing and cherry cream filling????
Seriously though, I do hope you can get your BS level under control and not have any further problems.
I was thinking of you and a comment I made a few days ago, and I was inspired to create this design. It's 5.08 x 4.02 inches.
If you'd like it, email me with your format and I'll send it to you.
hugs n love, Meg

Meg this is a wonderful design (love the animation) but Debra has only a 4x4hoop ;o) Maybe only the smiling man in the moon?
Greets, Bettina

meganne by meganne 26 Oct 2012

Thanks Bettina, I had a feeling that Deb only had a 4x4 hoop but just wasn't sure. I'll redesign it so it will fit. Not sure she has even seen it yet. :-)

leenova54 by leenova54 26 Oct 2012

Yep, I am a 4x4 girl =o(

leenova54 by leenova54 26 Oct 2012

BTW, the chocolate cake and cherry filling sounds good but no, nothing so good. I've even been watching what I eat more than I ever did before!

leenova54 by leenova54 26 Oct 2012

OH, I sent you an email, if I got it right, to let you know I'd like that design in 4x4. Thanks so much!

by janetedna 24 Oct 2012

Glad to hear it's under control and you'll be " normal " ( laugh) again soon. Jan

Oh MY GOODNESS! Debra.... So glad you are getting this under control.... that was a scary things. Take care of yourself... Hugs...T

by anangel 24 Oct 2012

Please keep a check on that blood sugar level, Debra. The pressure in your eyes had to have been tremendously high, and the reason to have you in for a checkup so quickly. No wonder you were falliing or stumbling! You are still my heroine! I admire your stamina through all your medical difficulties! Stay strong and positive; my prayers are still ongoing for you each day!
Hugs, Angel

by 02kar Moderator 24 Oct 2012

You are having quite a roller coaster ride with these health issues. I am so glad you and your doctor are working well together and that you should have normal levels in a few days.

by sdrise 24 Oct 2012

Wow that was high. It is a wonder why you did not go into shock. Do you think that is why you fell the last time? Good to know the doctor is on it and you are feeling better..Suzanne

That is scary high. So glad it's on the way back down to a normal reading. Your vision will clear up also as it goes down. Big Hugs!

by sandyqueen 23 Oct 2012

Two years ago hubby diagnosed with diabetes. However, Vitamin D was deficient (14). When we got the Vit D level up past 34 the blood sugars dropped to normal and have stayed there. We are so grateful, no pills. We do be careful what we eat though. His mom, two grandmas had diabetes so we knew possibly he and our kids should watch carefully.
