Diabetes Forum The Global Diabetes Community Find support, ask questions and share your experiences. Join the community Had a bit of surprise a few weeks ago as I hadn't been to doctor or felt the need to for about 18 years. I went to register with our surgery last week after a house move (7 Years ago )and they did some tests as I hadn't been seen for so long and found glucose in my urine and so tested my blood and my level was 21 I had to fast over night and go back for more blood tests and even the t was 18. Strangely didnt really have any symptoms so had no idea. I was immediatley diagnosed as being type 2 and put on 1000 Mg of metformin 3 x per day Bit of a shock but just the kick in the butt I needed to sort my life out so I've been doing an hours walking every night to get some much needed exercise and I've also totally changed my diet. I've already lost 8Lbs in about 10 weeks so I'm quite pleased with the gradual weight loss. As I said I never had any real symptoms but I can look back over the course of a few years and see where I have had what could be descibed as Hypos. Yesterday I was working from a different office a couple of hours away from home and had forgotton to b Continue reading >>

    What is worse hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia?

    Hi there
    What is worse in terms of diabetes complications hypo or hyper? I know hyper can cause long term damage over time. Can having lots of hypo's cause long term damage?
    Also what short term damge can be done from both hyper and hypo? (I dont for example mean if you have a hypo and black out and hit your head on a table as you fall)
    Thanks in advance.

    I read a study which showed that hypoglycemia is overrated as a concern for T2's, so that tight control is quite feasible. I myself am most afraid of hyperglycemia, because of the long term complications. My mother, 30 years a T2, is beginning to suffer many of them, so I see first hand what hyper can do. Her doctors are content with A1c under 7: I want to be much more strict.

    Most T 2's don't suffer dangerous hypos unless you are on insulin or certain drugs that overstimulate your pancreas to produce too much insulin. Most T 2's can feel a hypo coming on and can treat it with a source of glucose. In most T2's our body's regulatory system will kick in glucose when we start going low. High numbers are another matter since many of us have no symptoms when going high. The only defense is frequent testing. If a T 2 is only on oral meds there is no way to treat a very high numbers, except some type of exercise. I think overtime the higher numbers do much more blood vessel damage and may lead to neuropathy and lots of other complications.

Its a constant struggle to keep levels within a good range. When I think about it, diabetes and controlling BGL is quiet a scary prospect. People without diabetes may not realise the difficulty of managing their sugar levels, because the body does this automatically. On a daily basis Im faced with the complexity of managing, my sometimes unpredictable blood glucose levels. Ive learnt that there are many factors which can impact blood glucose level (BGL) such as, eating too much, or not eating enough, eating on time, how much exercise Ive done, stress, too little, or too much Insulin . It is extremely important to keep a close eye on what Im eating, the Insulin I take and most of all my BGL. It all ties together! Hyperglycaemia this occurs when blood glucose levels increase abo Continue reading >>

    Hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia occur when the body is unable to strike that delicate balance of blood glucose with food and activities. Even with the additional support of insulin injections it is easy to lose this balance. Hypoglycaemia is when blood glucose drops too low. Hyperglycaemia is when blood glucose rises too high. Diabeter can help treat and avoid these conditions. With a hypo (full: hypoglycemia) the blood sugar is too low. A hypo ca ...
