Patient Comments: Hyperglycemia - Describe Your Experience

After 20 years with type 2 diabetes which was in recent years brought bang under control using medications (metformin, glitz and sitagliptin) and a strict low glycemic index diet, two months ago it suddenly rose from readings below 7 to above 17. The highest was 26.8. I am now up to 70 units of insulin as well (2 doses). And nothing is working for my hyperglycemia. The consultant said he doesn't know what's wrong; the diabetic nurses treat the symptoms with ever increasing doses of insulin and my general physician isn't sure and wants to leave it to the experts. Meanwhile, I feel awful and am sleeping my life away! I experienced a 3 month period of dry mouth and major weight loss, I still felt fine during this time, though my wife was worried. I went into see my doctor, who ran some blood work. My sugar level was 30 mmol/lt. So next day I saw a diabetes specialist. She shot me up with various Insulin products. Shortly after I lost my sight in one eye and phased out the other. These insulin products increased my already high blood sugars into the high 40s. I decided not to take anything, as it affected me in a really bad way. It took 2 months to regain my sight and still hasn't retu Continue reading >>

    What does high blood sugar feel like to you?

    Hi everyone,
    I was just reading another thread (about highs and lows) and realised that I don't actually feel anything when my blood sugar levels are high, whereas other people say that they can.
    I was diagnosed type 1 nearly a year ago now, so I'm wondering...
    What does a high feel like?
    How high does your blood sugar have to be in order for you to feel it?
    I think the last may be why I don't feel it - my blood sugar very rarely goes above 10 [180] - so maybe it needs to be higher?
    The only way I know if it's high is if I know that I have eaten something that isn't covered by my insulin... or by testing, of course.
    And yes, I know everyone's different, but I'm wondering if there's a general concensus!

    Mine has to get pretty high before I feel "different." IF I get up to 250 I feel sick to my stomach and get a dry mouth. Thank goodness it rarely happens.

  3. icedale

    Well, for the first couple of weeks after I got out of hospital, I had readings while I stablisied that I would consider beginning to get high (edit: mostly because it didn't stay up there for very long), up around 12 (216ish) but in the past two months I haven't had a reading over 7 (126).
    But during those two weeks, I did begin to notice very subtle changes just in the way I'd focus when it was up a little higher. It seemed it took ever so slightly longer to focus and get my head around something when it was higher. That's just me though. =)

Signs of Diabetes - Signs of Diabetes in Men - Signs of Diabetes in Women & Adults | Diabetes Signs Signs of Diabetes Are you worried that you may have a diabetes? Having some of the signs of diabetes doesn't mean you definitely have the condition, but you should always contact your doctor, just to make sure. Most early symptoms are from higher-than-normal levels of glucose, a kind of sugar, in your blood. Common Symptoms The common symptoms of diabetes include: Going to the toilet a lot, especially at night. Being really thirsty. Feeling more tired than usual. Losing weight without trying to. Genital itching or thrush. Cuts and wounds take longer to heal. Blurred vision. Type 1 Diabetes Although the majority of people with Type 1 diabetes are diagnosed in childhood and early adulthood, the symptoms are the same at any age. Adults diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes may not recognise their symptoms as quickly as children, which in turn will prove detrimental as diagnosis then treatment may be delayed. High levels of glucose being passed in the urine are a perfect breeding grou

7 Signs Your Blood Sugar Is Out Of Control

Thinkstock A Silent Danger When you have type 2 diabetes, your main goal should be controlling your blood sugar. Without adequate blood sugar control, your risk for serious health complications — stroke, heart disease, nerve damage, blindness, and more — skyrockets. But here’s the tricky part: You might not even know your blood sugar levels are out of control. “Not everyone will have the same symptoms, and some individuals have no symptoms at all,” says Lori Zanini, RD, CDE, a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Because proper blood sugar maintenance is vital to your overall health with type 2 diabetes, you need to take action if you think your levels may be out of control. “Since symptoms of uncontrolled diabetes may not appear until prolonged hyperglycemia has been present, it’s important for individuals with diabetes to monitor their glucose and adjust their medication based on the results,” explains Mary Ann Emanuele, MD, an endocrinologist, professor, and medical director of Inpatient Diabetes at Loyola University Medical Center in Mayfield, Illinois. Here are signs of uncontrolled blood sugar to look for: Continue reading >>

Diabetic Attack Symptoms

A person with diabetes may experience blood sugar that is too low, known as hypoglycemia, or blood sugar that is too high, known as hyperglycemia. Diabetes is a disease in which the body is not able to properly use insulin, a hormone responsible for regulating blood sugar. Blood sugar fuels the body, and an imbalance of blood sugar and insulin may lead to health complications. A person experiencing a diabetes attack may have a variety of symptoms. Video of the Day Mental changes are the first symptoms of blood sugar imbalance. Mental changes happen quickly and can progressively worsen with delayed treatment. Blood sugar that is too low or too high can trigger confusion and problems with memory. A person may seem unusually confused and have trouble recalling recent events or personal information. As blood sugar imbalance worsens, additional physical symptoms may appear while mental changes get worse. Dizziness may also occur, along with feeling weak. Without treatment, a diabetic may lapse into unconsciousness. He may be difficult or impossible to rouse or engage, and immediate medical attention is needed to prevent further complications. Thirst and Hunger High or low blood sugar ch Continue reading >>

    I know everyone's a little different, which is why I asked. I know before I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, aside from being really thirsty and peeing buckets, my eyes twitched uncontrollably and my bum itched *blush*. Too much information, I know; but just goes to show everyone's different! Now that I shared my secret, how about you? What does a high blood sugar feel like to you? Thanks in advance! I really appreciate it!

    Tiredness and thirst. And sometimes an urge to eat carbs. That's two out three symptoms that overlap with a hypo. Though the tiredness of a hyper comes on more slowly and isn't usually quite so extreme.

Though the tiredness of a hyper comes on more slowly and isn't usually quite so extreme. I've often wondered about that -- lots of people ask me if I ever get hungry when my blood sugar is high and truth be told, when my blood sugar is high, I always feel bloated and heavy, like I couldn't eat another bite. And, I get heartburn from processed carbs! And sleepy! Heavy eyelids, feels like I'm drowning in quicksand! Aches and pains and muscle strains, but never an urge to eat carbs! LOL
