Sweetie, welcome to the Forum. You are indeed lucky to be alive. I've never heard of blood sugar so high! Thank heavens you did seek medical help. You did have symptoms! The symptoms were peeing a lot, thirst and losing weight. I'm glad you're under medical care. It may take awhile for your body to adjust to more normal or least lower blood sugar. You've been living with high blood sugar for some time, so be patient and you'll soon feel better as you live with normal blood sugar. Your system might have been messed up because of the high blood sugar and maybe that's why you have missed some mentrual cycles - ask your doctor. Once your weight is back up to normal for you, you should probably try eating a lower carb diet in order not to gain too much weight, which is what happens sometimes when you're on insulin. You need to be very vigilant in testing to be sure your blood sugar doesn't go too low and work with your doctor about
the dosage for your medication. You don't have to develop belly fat if you have a decent diet and participate in regular exercise. A type 1 who is pregnant also needs more attention to regulating her blood sugar, so seeing the doctor and understanding how to deal with the diabetes and pregnancy is important when the time comes. I hope you have a good endocrinologist. Good luck.
