(I've moved her post to a new location where we all can read it.)

My MD told me today that she seels I have Type II diabetes probably related to chronic prednisone use for my asthma. My HbAc1 was 138, I started checking, my sugars today and it was 160 which surprised me. My MD gaave me a presription of Metformin 500mg 1xday. I am skeptical schocked at this diagnosis. I have been chronically ill for the lasts 6 months fatique respriatory infections slow healing of tooth extracion. My plan rith now is to monitor my glucose multiple times a day to try and convince myself that it is real. I don't know I guess I think I have to have blood sugars in the 200's to be diabetic.

I read people don't feel good with diabetes and of course that makes sense but what does it realy feel like to be hyperglycemisc, I really don't know of anyone with the disease to talk with them about it.

Is what I'm going through common, of course I LOVE Sugar!

I once was hypoglycemic and I also have had problems with high blood sugar as well. The worse time I had a hypoglycemic attack was when my sugar dropped down to 47, I had not eaten or drank anything all day and it was around 6 or 7 at night. I began to get extremely shaky and I could feel my heart pounding like it was going to come out of my chest. My vision became real blurred and I almost fainted. I lost my concentration, my balance, and my vision was very blury. After I drank a glass of orange juice and a cup cake it slowly went back up. In my experiences, the best way to treat hypoglycemia is to eat six times a day...every few hours and in small amounts. Keeping your sugar stable and food in your body really seems to help.

I was put on metformin for a while because of my sugar problems and I didn't take it as I should have. I am a strong Christian and I believe that God can heal anyone who has faith. I was diagnosed with borderline diabetes. I was prayed for by a minister at my church that the diabetes would be gone. A week later I stopped feeling all of the diabetic and hypoglycemic symptoms. Several months later my blood test showed that my sugar was completely normal and nothing was wrong! It was a true miracle and I am thankful to this day that my wonderful saviour healed me! He is a healer!
