Thanks for the comment. I don't know why my post did not appear. I had fully intended to take it but fell asleep before I got up to do so! I feel strange about taking it tonight because tomorrow I work..Taking it last night and then having today (Sunday) free to feel for any effects would have been nice. Don't wanna go low at work. Oh well. Gotta get on the horse sometime. I have so many questions because he added two medications and I am concerned about taking them all together, three of which combined may cause low sugar. I have so many questions but he is only here in town on Fridays. Arrgh it is so confusing and scary!

Last Thur. my fam doc's office called, told me to head to ER for an emergency evaluation, as my kidney labs that morning were off. (BG was in the 90s and a1c was 5.8).

After being held captive, stabbed for IV and hooked up to monitors, banded like a pigeon etc etc I was eventually released (they were planning on my spending the night). I do NOT like spending nights in a horsepital, they usually do a bad or worse job of D-management, plus how can on get a good rest in them their horsepitals?

I see my fam doc first thing Monday morning (a couple weeks early,

Nice to be back home and I am doing OK

The person I saw with MS (but not diabetes) was already using a power wheelchair (but still working) when I first met him. He had a van he could drive the power wheelchair into, so that he could drive to work.

Hey! How are you doing? It's been a while since I've been on here. How did your dr appt. go? I got way more than I bargained for when I was at the dr. last time. In fact, I'm still dealing with it.
I think having both MS and diabetes is really hard. There's a lot to deal with and it's different for everyone. I hope we can support each other through all of the good and bad.

Well......its been a stormy week.....

Strange as it may sound, I am excited about being sent to the MSU MS (multiple sclarosis) clinic and expect to find out when I go Monday. IF the MS Dx is confermed and become formal, then I may be able to get treatment. I just hope is RRMS and not SPMS. This may also explain so much about my diabetes being wierd as well.

There is a linkage between autoimmune T-1 and MS and I started a new group here for diabetics with MS.

For what seems forever everything got blamed on my diabetes, that is till I saw a new eye doc who explained WHY my diplopia was NOT diabetes related. I have had diplopia since I was 18. one thing led to another etc etc etc so maybe just maybe I will learn WHY I became a GOMER and instead of going down hill may be able to level things off a bit, or even improve things like my mobility.

Was wondering what your "freak out" numbers are. What's too high for you?
And too low?

What's the lowest "high" number that you would inject to correct? 150? 200?

I'm trying to rein in my numbers. Waiting to hear back from bloodwork to see how my last A1c was... hoping it wasn't too bad.

Also if its "Foam" is it definate like You'll know...and by "like 24 hours" did you mean if you left the urine after urinating to sit it would still appear foamy 24 hours later?
At 7:31am on December 11, 2008, Craig Wilkerson said…
See I was a little worried because sometimes I see a little bit of lingering bubbles ... but they never last more than well i'd say 30 seconds to a minute tops....my doctor did blood work and multiple strip tests and said because the bloodwork was so excellent he and the tests at all times of day have came back negative he was not concerned..maybe just the meat I had eaten before or glucose in the urine making it appear that way..

So basically if its foam it would last A WHILE?
At 10:47pm on December 10, 2008, Craig Wilkerson said…
I read in a comment on another post about foamy urine...I've always been curious about this as a lot of people get normal urination characteristics....bubbles caused by forceful flow..as opposed to foam which I would imagine looks something like dish soap?

So I guess the question is what does "Foam" due to protienuria look like?
