Is this UNUSUAL? or not!
Tuesday, May 19, 2009
Hello to all,
I originally posted this in my team, "Managing Diabetes" and thought I'd duplicate it here in case others knew or understood some of the issues that I/we diabetics might have. We still don't have definitive answers, but I've posed the question to my endocrinologist and hopefully we will soon understand the reasons my body reacts differently sometimes.
Here is the rest of the post.
I've been diagnosed with diabetes since 1998 and been under doctors care since. I've noticed a couple of things and thought they were unusual.
When originally diagnosed, I had the opportunity for a new job and had never tested my blood sugar before. To make a story a bit shorter, I tested my blood sugar ( b/s ) and if it was high, I took my oral medicine and took a walk. Then I went to take my physical for the new job and low and behold, my b/s had risen. That still happens today.
Most recently, the day of my last office visit, I tested at 7 am, took my oral meds and insulin (not a long lasting insulin, as I take 70/30) and only dropped 4 points in b/s by 10:00 at my doctor's office. I had not eaten either. I don't think he caught on the the moral of the story until I told the story the third time.
Just thought I'd check to see if others have unusual occurrences like this, if so, what did you/your doctor figure out.
have a great day
because it is one!
