Ever since I started the plaq my blood sugar has not dropped on me. I was having to eat every 2 hrs, since I started the plaq I am eating my normal way. Could this mean I do have organ damage? Even if it does I'm not going to let it get me down!

While there are signs and signals I think the only way to detect organ damage is via the blood or urine. Most commonly would be the kidneys.

Dont let it get you down! Just keep doing your best :)

bhk...I'm glad the plaquenil has helped so much with blood sugar and that you don't have to eat as often. I agree with CityGirl, that you would have to have some labs done if you are concerned about having organ damage.
