Three years ago i was diagnosed with diabetes. Not having a clue what was going on with my body(which i knew very well). First having to urinate like every 3-5 minutes,vision was hazey,tired and dehydrated. I had a Dr's appointment three days prior. Seen my doctor…everything's fine til three days later and all hell broke loose. When at the Dr's office i wasn't there no more than 10 minutes when the nurse came out to tell me to go straight to the Hospital(accross the street)that they were waiting for me. Puzzled as i was, so i went. When i get there i was admitted instantly. I was also told that my blood-sugar was over 1700. However I didn't feel any different, but was told i was very blessed to be alive still. I stayed in Hospital a week until they got it down. Long story short…I'm still here and feeling better than ever(thank God)lost about 30lbs down to where i should be between 140-150, don't excercise a lot but my job keeps me busy. So that's my story…keep me in your prayers and God Bless.

Wow! That blood sugar was high, thank God you got it checked in time. I never knew your sugars could get up that high - it's like a miracle. Take care of yourself and try to keep your blood sugars under control, DC is a great site with what I find to be very informative, supportive and helpful. :)

Me too, one never knows who will be struck next, so it is important to stay informed once diagnosed—-Pat Roth

Hi Rick,
You are lucky they caught it and got your BS down. Just make sure you check your BG's regularly. So many problems can happen with out of control BG's.
And welcome to DC, it's a great place to be. Dan
