Well just kind of perplexed.
Went in to clinic with breathing
Problems, did X-ray, lungs look
Like I was a pack a day smoker…
I don't smoke and not around any.
A breathing treatment helped.
Given rx for inhaler and a tapered
It helped, but blood glucose went
Nuts, blood sugar 400 to 500,
Test urine, glucose is 4+ (highest you
can go), trace to plus 1 in keystone
Trace in protein.
Called clinic…said really flush the
Kidneys and if needed I could
double the glyburide.
Well I know this…it was what I was
Doing, some places you would be
Sent to hospital, but I guess we
Are a bit conservative and hospital
is for "sick people".
But I thought maybe a blood draw to
Double check for dka might have
And get bg down to 140's just to start over again in the morning
So up untilled 2 am drinking water,
Flushing the system, and checking
Blood glucose, we end up getting
the urine down to normal
On the glucose, keytones and protein.
