How in the world did you let it get that high? Don't you fingerstick?
My highest was a 1,440 and I test 8X per day. Food poisoning got me. I was unconscious when found by my bride upon her return from an extended trip. Our volunteer EMS gave me an IV of dextrose plus a glucose bolus which is what shot my BG into the stratosphere. As is so often the case, wildly erratic readings like mine or kristalnscott's are not necessarily the fault of the individual but can result from a variety of factors.
yes I test very often...now! I was going through some tough times and the stress and such made it impossible to take care of! I just put my husband in jail for assault, going through a divorce, raising two kids on my own, and having to go back to work with two young babies! I passed out and when I was found, 2.5 days later I was near dead! Rushed to Toronto General and in a coma for 8 days on life support, with renal failure (which are back to normal now). my family was told to expect me to die! Then I woke up! It was a horrible experience and not something that I am proud of, but you can't live in the past, gotta forget about all that has happened and keep going forward =)
That is an astoundingly high BG. Wow.
574 at dx on 1/12/82 (I don't think I've ever been higher)
23 (and I actually had the wherewithal to test myself, though I couldn't think what to do once I saw that number...)
High 700 > ended up in hospital
Low > 35
I was 342 when I was diagnosed and I don't think I've gone higher than that, although breakfast continued to spike me back up into the 300s right after I was diagnosed.
My lowest blood sugar was 32. I was in the middle of eating a slice of pizza. I was experimenting with splitting the bolus to avoid spikes from fatty foods, so I had only taken half the dose of insulin I needed to the cover the meal. I still went low! I'm still confused by the incident--who goes low while chewing on a pizza crust? But I don't particularly care to have pizza for a while, so I guess it's a good thing. ;)
Ihave an 11 yr old and an 8 yr old who are both T1
11 yr old High HIGH (over 500 that's as high as our meter goes)
and Low 40
8yr old High 695 at diagnosis
LO (below 20) 1 week after diagnosis. (He was 19 months old)
Highest, "High", lowest, "low"
High was the day i finally went to see the doc and was told I was T1
900 when diagnosed, and 34
