Oct 10, 2016 · I'm a very strange diabetic and a miracle as well....long story short in Diabetes/Endocrine System

Been rough lately because I’ve been sick. That’s very very sweet and kind of you to check on me. Thank you!
It’s a battle trying to find normal again; I’ve finally decided to adjust my ideal normal and find my “daily normal”.

I’m sorry for your loss…. It must so hard trying to do everything alone.
You are not alone, not really. I’m positive that both your Mom and God are watching over you.
You are in my prayers…

I understand about depression…. I fight it. It’s so hard to be “normal” when you have to constantly battle highs and lows and my immune system is suppressed because of the coma damages done.
I truly am sorry that you’re battling depression, but, if you ever need to talk, I’m here.

That’s got to be hard being 28 and already been through so much! I’ve heard the pump works for stabilizing us, I’m just worried about getting one.
Do they hurt?

Apr 8, 2016 · I'm a very strange diabetic and a miracle as well....long story short in Diabetes/Endocrine System

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…

Apr 8, 2016 · Dealing with side effects of metoprolol for high blood pressure in Heart & Blood Health

I’ve been taking Met for four years to help control my PVCs and rhythm issues… Oddly, my BP is normal.
The Meds took me almost a year to get used to the weakness, which I feel better explains my side affects. I take 12.5mg twice daily.
Please, talk to your doctor before d/c any Meds. I’ve read stopping this particular drug without a doctors supervision could lead to more heart troubles.
I hope you find the answers, I do a lot of research on any Meds I’m prescribed and this drug has been around forever because it does work. (My daughter in law is a pharmacist and she helped convince me to give it a chance.)
