I have been seeing posts lately about people having to miss work due to high blood sugars. I was just wondering if it is because they feel sick? I am a recently diagnosed, uncontrolled type 1 diabetic. I was diagnosed a year and a half ago and have not been taking care of myself, larelgy sue to battling bipolar disorder and depression. But I have high blood suagrs all the time and i don't feel too sick from them. Sometimes i feel very weak and achy but I dont know if that is from lack of exercise or high blood sugars. I know everyone is different but I was just curious. I know I don't take care of myself but I am starting to wonder if I am not taking high blood sugars seriously enough.

I also have not been feeling good. Been feeling very sick in the mornings (not pregnant). Is this also common with high blood sugars? I also drink alot of diet pop.

High blood sugars should be taken seriously. Like you I have depression and was diagnosed almost 2 years ago. When I have a high I feel icky and get VERY irritated with everything. I sometimes get very tired as well (although my depression causes me to feel tired all the time)

High blood sugars can lead to complications that can make us miss work such as blurry vision or fatigue. I know that I would crash everyday around 3:00 pm no matter what I was doing. High sugar can also lead to nerve damage that can prevent people from doing their jobs and even things like boils can put a person down for a few days (that one I know from experience)

Highs and lows need to be taken seriously. Either extreme comes with it's own set of problems. That is why we work so hard to have some kind of control.
