Its driving NUTS!!
I know this can be a symptom early in diabetes, but I am 7 yrs in, started insulin a couple months ago and for th elast couple weeks I just can get enough fluids in me
Yesterday for example, I drank…75oz of crystal light, 138oz of diet unswetened ice tea, and 120oz of ice water and I could have kept going
I cant sleep more than 2 hours, if I am awake I am in the potty 3 times-ish an hour
I called the on call DR today, he wants me to increase insulin, I am now at 60 units of Lantus and 15-20 of Novo, blood pressure was 163/108 with a 126 pulse…Dr says *Your dehydrated, you need to go to the ER and do IV fluids* how in world could I be dehydrated?…Oh I forgot to mention, my mouth feels like I have been eating extra salt sunflower seeds, tongue is swollen, lips are chapping despite chap stick…and even with the increase in insulin today (everything was increase 10 units instead of 1 unit a day til we get good numbers) my bs was 417, after an EXTRA 20 of Nov its down to 396
I had an english muffin with jam & honeydew melon today…thats it!
Anyone else deal with the horrid thirst?, Does anything help it? nothng I have tried has quenched it…Help
