Stemwinder (Gary) replied to april's discussion 'Started insulin 2 days ago, any pointers?'
"Frequent testing till you know how the insulin effects you is a good idea and a continued consistent test schedule is not a bad idea either. Headaches can be caused by low bg. Low bg symptoms can come on even if your not technically low. If your…"

Type 2 diabetes
How do you hope to benefit from TuDiabetes?
information
Date diagnosed
February 18, 2012
Type of treatment/devices you use
Oral, Shots
Tell us more about you (optional)
heart ablation in 2005 for a SVT. I was resustitated.
Have been fine since then until February.
Started getting nausea and vomiting every so often.
Went to cardiologist, he admitted me for 5 days.
High blood sugar and high bp. I get pins and needles in hands and feet, burning sensations in head,eyes etc.
Never feel myself anymore and I'm sick of it to be honest. I quit smoking 7 months ago, figured that would help seems it made it worse. I lost 20lbs before only to gain 27 back from not smoking. I did gain back a lot of money tho. I am trying to work on my weight but I seem to have urges at night to eat. I see a therapist now, and I am on xanax twice a day to keep me from going crazzzy. That's funny right?? we take or don't take meds or addictive stuff to make ourselves feel better but to be prescribed more meds to counteract the other. Makes no sense to me..=)
