I'm a very strange diabetic with extreme highs and extreme lows
I’m a very strange diabetic and a miracle as well….long story short, never had issues until found in a coma with sugar 1,555…!(yes, that’s the correct number) I almost died.
At first they had me on Lantus and fast acting insulin before meals, after two weeks in the hospital after coming out of the coma.
I developed heart issues and for some reason I developed Hypoglycemia and they d/cd all insulin.
I went from 18mths of treatment and then I was normal. Then for no reason the hypo started. That went on for years. Now, I fight highs and lows. They’ve tried Metformin and some days it works, others I battle lows to where I’m eating and drinking to just keep my sugar up.
Right now I’m battling lows, it’ll go up to 200 because I’m literally eating raw sugar to get it to do that. It drops 70-80 points with five minutes. (Which affects my heart arrhythmia and it’s just a vicious cycle!)
Does anyone have these issues? If so, do you have any advice on how to control my lows?
Thank you for listening…
