I know this may seem weird but since being diagnosed I have noticed that my toilet has started to grow black mold. I clean and and within a few days more has formed. I will admit my sugars aren't the lowest. Average is maybe 300. Is there a connection and anyone else have this problem?

I had the same issue the summer I was diagnosed and at that time would have been running very high numbers. I have had farily good BG values after that and have never noticed the issue again. I remember telling my parents that I thought the problem must have been all of the sugar I was peeing out, it is interesting to finally get an answer to that issue.

I told my parents too and they told I wasn't cleaning it enough but I was. I just wanted to know if there was a relationship between the two. And the high blood sugars I am trying to regulate. But I do thank you all for your responses.
