"Do you know any articles that talk about thin type 2? My doctor seems baffled about my situation, since my sugars have not improved with loss of 30 pounds. They spike after meals to 225 and then plummet to the 70s or even the 60s."

Boo's Journey through Diabetes (with Susan)

Posted on June 30, 2011 at 9:44am 0 Comments

Hi everyone



I found out I had type 2 in April 2010, when I passed out at work. My glucose level was at 30 and apparently that is very dangerous as you're heading for a coma ... I was widowed in 2009 and the medics told me that the shock of losing my husband brought on type 2. The fight or flight reaction that I had was quite natural of course, however, normally we are in that state for a few minutes.  And my body remained that way for approx 4 months.  I remember my heart…

wow, thank you everyone for such a warm welcome. I'm a member of another community which is set up very similarly to this one (for widow/ers) and I'm one of the "greeter" on there :-) so now I can see how good it feels when I greet someone new. thank you all so much. I shall come back in a couple of days to introduce myself properly, but in a nutshell ... I was diagnosed with type II back in April 2010 when I passed out at work. The paramedics found I had blood sugars @ 30 (heading for coma apparently). The doctors told me that the shock of losing my husband (I was 44) suddenly and without warning stressed my body so much that I ended up with diabetes. My biggest issue is that I didn't care if I lived or died for the first year, so didn't look after myself but now I know I have to. I choose life. I've started a blog (http://ning.it/jHc715) mainly to gather all the info and research that I needed to educate myself with and also so that another diabetic widow and myself can motivate each other to control this disease vs. the disease controlling us. Speak soon ... Boo x
