After 51 years of taking care of my diabetes, something suddenly happens to me that never before showed up!
Suddenly, my sugars come up very high over the last weeks. I follow that up by taking much higher amounts of insulin (Humalog and Lantus) without much result. My eating is the same daily. I exersize very little because my CHF won't let me do it. My medications are increased on account of CHF,
I will now check on the new meds to see if there is a side-effect causing the high sugar, but cannot see it happening.
I use urine testing with Chem-10 the stuff doctors use and the labs. Yet it won't show high sugar or ketones. My blood it tested for sugar up to 10 times daly.
I have taken three other testers to see if that would be the trouble? But there is no difference.
My meds are Lasix or furosemide, Aldactone or Spironolactone, Carvedilol,
all taken twice a day and Toloxin once a day. Also Avapro.
My average should be around 108 US 6 Can. with many variations of course, blood tested. It is much higher, about averaging minimum 10 C or 180 US.
Just had lunch showing 14.3 Can—257 US. Did not eat anything of the usual, no chocolate or cake or candies which would disappear in a while but this here
won't leave me!
I went to a specialist years ago, who knew less about diabetes then I did.
Now, I may have to find one who knows about diabetes…
Thanks for reading, any ideas?
