Blood Sugar



I haven't had a 280 in awhile. I think I got kind of lazy in calculating my insulin does thanks to the lower blood sugars I've had after previous thanksgivings. It also could be because I'm now on 20 units of Lantus instead of 30 but I'm not sure if that was the issue. Nevertheless I'm hoping to get my numbers back down over the next few weeks.

Surgery

Jan 11, 2011 - 0 comments

Went in for emergency surgery. Turns out somehow I had testicular torsion which is weird considering I've never been damaged in the area, but I read that the causes can sometimes go undiagnosed. Just glad the problem was fixed. The only thing I remember about that day is that my blood sugar was 258 in the morning and I had very little to eat because of the surgery. It's just odd how if i never got the Kidney stones in oct the problem would have probably been missed.

scared



Woke up in the middle of the night with a pain in my lower left side. Turns out after the vomiting and discomfort that I had developed a Kidney Stone (a pain I would not wish on some of my worst enemies). I was in the ER for most of the day (and trying to rest when I wasn't) so I didn't really get to monitor most of my diabetes. What's scary is this is the third October in a row where something has affected me healthwise. Last year to the day almost I had a pain almost in the same area which turned out to be appendicitis, and the year before that one of my teeth chipped after I had been suffering a toothache. This has me scared for next October.

Forgot my Bedtime Shot.

high blood sugar



I realized that I had a syringe full of lantus laying on my computer desk this afternoon. This explains the 326 I had this morning. I thought I took my shot last night before I went to sleep but apparently I didn't. At the least it wasn't a 326 while on my insulin. That makes me feel a little better.
