Hello everyone, this is my first post. I've been visiting this site for about a week now and have read most of the topics in here and I must say everyone is extremely nice, understanding and knowledgeable on this disease. In my situation I was not aware I had high blood sugars until I started having the following symptoms: extreme thirst, frequent urination, tingling of my fingers, rapid weight loss and leg cramps but you see I was drinking a product that was supposed to help with weight loss and was supposed to be drinking water because that product would make me thirsty. I advised the representative that signed me up that I was feeling like that and she insisted I keep drinking water. I started that product in December 2016 and by February 2017 I had lost 15 lbs. late March I got sick, weak always tired and the same symptoms were going on. My mother suggested I go to the doctor and discuss my regimen with him. He ordered blood work and I was called the next day to discuss my results.. I was worried that whole weekend, started stressing out. By late March I had already stopped drinking the products because I know deep in my heart that is what caused my sugars to sore sky high ( to me anyways ). My A1C was 12.6 and my sugars were 315 the doctor said that was the reason for my rapid weight loss. In December I was 167 by March I was at 145. Started eating right and taking Metformin along with Pioglitazone, I have gone to the doctor's follow ups twice since then and right now my levels are excellent A1C is at 6.4 my average sugars are 99 and below, I'm exercising and eating healthy, he said I don't need to monitor daily anymore. I'm wondering if there is such a thing as to emotional diabetes?
I thank you for reading until the end, if you did and if not thank you for viewing my post.
