I had back surgery in Feb.2011, my back got infected and I had to go to the ER. Where they told me my blood sugar was over 500. I'm home now after a longest at stay at The hospital. I now have 2 different kinds of insulin pens and my normal sugar is 280. How is this ok and will it change when my back heals? Also how do I explain this to my children. Ahhhhhhhhh i don't think.its truly hit me yet that this is happening. I'm only 28 and I think ppl will think bad of.me for having this.
