  1. Diabetes
    Hi everyone, It has not been a good few weeks for me. My general doctor has changed my meds so much that they are truly not working. My levels have been 300-600. I went to the hospital last week with levels of 490. I told them that my doctor has been changing my oral medicine. They stated I...

    Hi everyone, Correct me if I am wrong and I would like some insight into this. What levels do you think you should head to the ER? Is it 300? And if you only feel tired and need to lay down would you still go to the ER if your levels were over 300? All comments welcome. Thanks all.

    Is it safe to go to work when your glucose levels are high? At what levels should you stay home and rest? Sometimes I am at work and my levels are high. I feel a little lightheaded and just a little disoriented. It does not happen all the time but it has happened. Do any one know at what level...

    How low is too low? My glucose levels use to be over 500 the majority of the time but since I lost 30 pounds my levels have gotten as low as 61. Today it is 86. Are these levels too low? I am skipping my meds today because they are so low. Are these levels fine?:confused:

    I guess diabetes does not take a day off. I had been doing good. I was eating vegetables and baked chicken. So I thought I could have one day of relaxation with my family and enjoy what they eat again. Well I had bread sticks from a pizza joint. I was feeling sick when I got home. Glucose level...

    I had a weak moment at work the other day and paid for it. My coworker brought in donuts!! He was like he come on help me eat these. You might as well have two donuts. I did and my glucose level that night was 445. I was so sick. I told my mom who is also a diabetic. She scolded me for not...

    I am so new to this I just want to ask a question. With being a type two diabetic do I have to look forward to a lot of doctor visits. I am paying out of pocket.

    Do anyone out there find themselves feeling lightheaded after lunch at work? I get my lunch from the machine. I find myself lightheaded after lunch.

    I put some bbq chicken in my rotisserie cooker last night. I ate with some baked beans. My glucose level was 310. I do not get it. I did not fry anything. Why was it so high? I had one cupcake at work from a coworker. Could it have been just that one little cupcake that caused the high numbers...
