on april 23 i had a 3 month follow up. i told my doctor that i felt like a cold was coming on. she drew blood and put me on tamiflu. i called the office on april 30 to see if the results came back abd i told them that i was getting worst, they said that my a1c test showed that it was a 13.9 and i also have type a & b flu. she told me to go to the emergency room because i needed a stronger antibiotic. when i got to the er they did blood and urine test and a chest xray they came in and put me on an iv and said i was severly dehydrated and that i was going to be admitted until thursday. while in the er they forced 2 bags of saline and antibiotices into me and that they were going to put me in icu so they could check on me every 2 hours. i when through a total of 14 bags of saline. i asked them how could i be dehydrated when i was drinking 3 gallons of water a day? they said that the water was running right through me. but i did get some good news on friday in 2 weeks my a1c test showed that it dropped down to 12.6.
