I was diagnoised with Type 2 in 2001. I was on 12 meds and insulin by 2006. I weighed 250 pounds. I decided one day to get off all meds and joined Jenny Craig that day. I lost 60 pounds and was still not checking BS. I felt better but not eating totally correctly. Then in 2007 my doctor that I wasn't seeing went out of business. I asked him to transfer my medical files to another doctor and later found out that my files are lost. My husband is self employed and our income barely covers basics. I have no doctor, no insurance and no money to purchase meds at this point. It's been 4 years since I have been seen by a doctor. I wasn't feeling good at all last week and I thought it was due to fibromyalgia. Then for some reason I checked my blood sugar and it was 600. I started drinking lots of water and rested in bed for 5 days. I ate as healthy as I could and my BS has gone down into the 300's.
Any suggestions on what to do when your numbers get that high?
Any suggestions on getting meds at a lower cost?
I am so no longer in denial. My feet feel like pins and needles daily. My eye sight is blurred at times. I'm exhausted from not sleeping at night. I'm up 4-5 times a night in the vicious cycle of going to the bathroom and then getting a drink. I know everyone knows the drill. I just need someone to talk to that understands. Thanks for your comments!
