A week ago I went to my family doctor because I hadn't been feeling well for quite some time and was majorly stressed out at work. I did a urine sample when I was there. My doctor told me I had sugar in my urine, gave me a piece of paper and sent me for blood tests. I looked it up and found out it could be a sign of diabetes. I waited 4 days for those results and still didn't have them.
Friday I was feeling terrible so I went into he hospital. They did blood tests while I was there and I was told I had Type 1 diabetes. The doctor felt I was okay enough to just take metformin and test my blood till they could get me in to see the endocrinologist. I have not received a call for that appointment nor have I received a call still from my family doctor. My blood sugar has consistantly been over 20 even doing everything I have been told to do. Today I tested this afternoon and I was at 25.9 which I believe converts to 466.2. I called my doctor and he told me to come in on Friday which is the earliest he can get me in. I can't stay awake and my stomach is killing me as well as my sides.
I hate hospitals and our waiting times are between 8-10 hours. Is there anything I can do to try and get my blood sugar levels down without going to the hospital? Any help would be appreciated greatly.
