Default Newly Diabetic

Hi everyone. In June I was diagnosed as Type 1 LADA. I inject both short and long term insulin, though both in very small amounts. We (doctors and I) are still trying to work out the correct dosage for my weight (55 kg). One of my first questions regards what causes blood sugar to rise relatively high. I am told that one of the main causes is when one gets irritated/angry, etc. How long does it take for the level to rise? Is it immediate, or does it take time? Today, for example, I was angry for whatever reason. After calming down I ate a normal meal (I checked my sugar and it was normal). Two hours later I checked again and my sugar was very high. Is that because of the nerves I'd had more than two hours earlier? Any info would be great, thanks.

First of Dalan Welcome...

As for the rise of blood sugars pretty much anything can and will make them go nuts- from good/bad stress, sleep patterns, being sick, food.. there are a number of things that will and can make them go yo-yoing out of control. As for the rise after 2 hrs after you where upset -- that could have been part of it or it could have been your meal or a combo of both. I am new to being a Type I diabetic myself. And I am on a sliding scale as well with my fast acting and long lasting insulins. I am still learning myself as to how and when and why my sugars do what they do -- and each person is different. I can say that since going on insulin in May 2008 I have felt amazingly better and have had some VERY serious stressful times in the last few months and my sugars have totally been effected from most of it. I do also believe that it is a bit of trial and error with new diabetics.... Good Luck to you and stay active on here there are many helpful and wonderful people here!

Default thanks

thanks for the info. As I am living in Israel my access to English literature on diabetes is very limited, can you name any books that my friends and family overseas could send me?

Default price of books

Diabetes for Dummies costs from $1 USD to $35 USD. $30 USD is about 110 shekels (is that Israeli money?), so be sure to have enough money if you could buy it. Hope this helps Welcome to the site
