Quite a few months have passed by before finally seeing my doctor this past week about my frequent urination. He told me I have type 1 diabetes and my blood sugar was in the mid 400's. Now I'm a bit worried about what kind of damage my body may have taken being at such a high level for at least the past 3 or 4 months. I didn't feel sick so I kept waiting thinking maybe this frequent urination would just go away. Instead over the past month it got even worse and I had to go every hour around the clock and I know I should have seen my doctor much sooner. So my question is how much damaged did I possibly cause by waiting so long to be diagnosed ? Also just a year and a half ago I had my spleen removed and 3/4 of my pancreas and now have major ventral hernias around my stomach from surgery. So I welcome any type of input anybody would like to share with me, and much thanks for any replies.
