Hi. Let me start off by saying I have not been diagnosed with diabetes. It does run in my family. My mom, her parents and about 5 of her sister and brothers has diabetes. My mom likes to check our glucose level when we are at her house sometimes. I told her that I have been having blurry vision after meals and she check my level. It has ranged from 165 to 398. It has not been under 200 for the last two months. She has told me to see a doctor as soon as possible. I have been so tired, and light headed. All I want to do is lay down. I feel tingly feelings in my extremities.My stomach has now started to hurt daily. I do not know if I have diabetes but my mom says it sounds like it. I am on a waiting list to see a low income doctor but my mom insist that I see a doctor soon. Is it safe for me to be going to work when I wake up and my levels are over 200? I bought my own meter to show the doctor my results when I get in to see them.
