Hi Melissuh, I'm sure that's a scary experience to be in the ER like that. As for your blood sugar, start here again. You posted here three years ago about
your blood sugar and it was rather elevated. Now with 248 and the tingly toes, it may be neuropathy. What does your primary doctor say? What has your blood sugar been for the past three years and are you on diabetes medication?
I am not a doctor (no one here at HW is but you already know that, right?) but from what your post today shows and from your previous posts, I think you've been dealing with two conditions: diabetes and anxiety.
I can absolutely help you with your blood sugar but please help me out and tell me if you're on diabetes meds. And what has your doctor told you about
your blood sugar and diet?
The link in my signature is to a site that has a lot of info about
blood sugar, what is normal and how to get it that way, research studies, charts, and so on. Also, please read the stickies at the top of this forum for more info.
Having high blood sugar can make you feel dizzy. Having high blood sugar for awhile (the length of time varies with the individual) can cause neuropathy in the extremities most often starting in the toes and feet, and high blood sugar can also affect other organs. This is why it's very important to understand that what you eat will affect your blood sugar. The more carbs (potatoes, bread or anything made with flour like cereal, crackers, chips, etc., corn, anything with sugar or honey or syrup) we eat, the higher our blood sugar will go. This is basic and there's no getting around it. It doesn't matter where the sugar comes from either: cane, maple syrup, coconut, agave, molasses.
So, where to start? Talk to your doctor and get the results of these tests and instructions. In the meantime, you need to understand why you have high blood sugar (it's what you're eating), so you need a plan to get your blood sugar under control.
Post back and we can talk about
this more! I'm glad you posted!
