Hi, is there anyone out there with diabetes and addison's disease? I think they bounce off of each other and make each other worse. (just a thought) My sugars are sky high, my last A1C was 8.1 and my fasting sugars are around 199 or so. I think it's the hydrocortozone. I'm now on Novalog and Lantus 30 units each. I'm feeling better now. It's amazing how much better I've been feeling. (now I've got a low grade temp) Lupus or RA is now acting up again. Seems like I get one thing under control and something else goes haywire! My next Endo appointment got canceled and got put to the 16th instead of the 8th. So I'll have to wait to see what happened on my blood tests. Before I started taking the Novalog I was so depressed, I didn't even realize how depressed I was until my first shot of Novalog. Wow, I suddenly felt better! I think Depression and Diabetes must go hand in hand. My Depression is getting better and better every day. My fasting sugars have been around the mid 80's now and I haven't gone over 200 during the day for three days or so. I just have to say I'm so glad my new endo knows what he's doing! Spoke too soon, my sugars are now going over 200 again starting last night. My Other Dr. thinks it's a reaction to the reduction of my hydrocortosone. I've gone from 40 to 30 mgs. She thinks that's why my temp starting going up too.
