I'm feeling a little stupid here about this. I went to the Family Doc today for a check-up and told her that I thought I may have a yeast infection. She took a urine sample to make sure and said she would call with the results tomorrow. 4 hours after the sample was sent to the lab I got a call from the other Doc at the clinic. She said my Doc had to leave early but they got back some "concerning" news on my urinalysis. I have yeast, blood & ketones in my urine and the sugar level was around 1000. She immediately had me take 8 units of my Novalog and told me to check BG in 2 hrs…if still over 250 I was to add an additional 5 units to my supper insulin. I was 380 so added the 5 and it only came down to 371. If I start to experience any pain in my abdomen or trouble breathing I'm to call the Doc on call, otherwise I'm to call my Endo in the morning becuase I may be going into DKA. I wondered if there were any other symptoms I should watch out for until I call the Endo in the morning. A little freaked out here.
