When you "pee sugar" your pancrease is not able to keep up with the demand of the glucose in your blood. You need at least 15 to 45 grams of carbs per meal otherwise your body believes that you are fasting so your liver dumps all the excess glucose that it has stored when it dumps then your pancrease kicks in to control all the glucose and it is not able to so therefore, "pee sugar"

Hi Sweetie…You are right to see a specialist for your sugar, but it is still a little high, you are doing good to get it down but maybe you need insulent or some meds. I try to keep mine around 100 but still have problems sometimes with burn of the blatter, so I take azo over the counter and it helps really good, drinking a lot of water helps. Take care and God Bless!! Barbara

At around 180 your kidneys start to filter out sugar from your blood and disposes of the sugar in your urine. That's why symptoms of diabetes include needing to drink a lot and frequent urination, it's your body trying to fix itself. Unfortunately your kidneys aren't designed to filter out sugar and eventually will lead to kidney failure. you may also have ketones in your urine as well although it is unlikely if you are a type 2 with blood sugar at the level it's at.

When are you testing your blood sugar? 366 to 255 is a drop but it is still high and causing you damage. It might also be a "false" reading depending on when you are testing. For instance a fasting level and a post meal level can't really be compared because there are very different factors involved.

I believe they are talking about ketones in your urine…and yes, that is something you want to avoid. It usually comes with having high sugars. Others will be able to give you more details. Congrats on lowering it to 255!! Unfortunately there are still alot of complications that can come along with that number. Keep in touch with your dr..once you are over the bladder infection you will feel better, and then more so the lower your sugars get. When I get up to 200 I feel many different things it makes you feel, you can't even explain I try to never see that number…plus I fall right to sleep if I get that high and makes me feel even worse. Keep working on your numbers, keep learning/researching, keep on your dr…no question is silly…and Keep your little chin up…we are all here and go through ups and downs and everything in between you'll always find someone to relate too. Keep us posted!
