I was diagnosed with Diabetes 2 about six years ago. I did not have a great deal of problems controlling it but hit some really rough times about three weeks ago when I had four wisdom teeth extracted. I found that I did not heal very well but kept bleeding for five days - at least that what I thought was happening. In retrospect I realize that what I was spitting out was caused by an infection. I was in so much pain that I did not eat right nor did I drink sufficiently. One day I woke up feeling terribly weak. The lights seemed unnaturally bright as did the sky. I felt so bad I went to an emergency care clinic. When I threw up I heard them conferring among themselves. Then they came in and advised me to go to the hospital. When I arrived there they put me on four I.V.s: Magnesium, Potassium, saline and insulin. They told me my electrolytes were drastically depleted because I had DKA which, they said, was a life-threatening condition. Three days later I was released and told never to take Jardiance or metformin again. Instead I have to take a daily injection of Lantus and Humalog whenever my glucose level went over 200. Up until that time I had never taken insulin. There is a lot of diabetes in my family. My brother and mother both have type 2 for which they take oral medications. We all developed it when we were older although mine has grown much worse than theirs. The doctor said that I now produce no insulin at all. This has made me wonder if I actually have LADA since, as I understand it, only children get Diabetes type 1. An additional risk factor with me is that I have Bipolar Disorder (type 1) which I developed when I was 40 (I am now 61). People with Bipolar Disorder have a greatly increased risk of developing diabetes (among other medical illnesses). I still have not been able to figure how this Lantus works. I tried taking it in the evening but my blood glucose levels went up too much during the middle to latter part of the day then dropped too low at night (to 50-60 mg/dL). I generally fare better taking it in the morning. That way I get through breakfast and lunch and the blood levels do not get too high until the evening only to drop too low at night. Although it goes too high it rarely goes above 201 mg/dL so I rarely take the Humalog. It seems to me that having it up around 150-160mg/dL for hours is not good which makes me wonder if the doctor ought to prescribe more Lantus (currently I take 26units/day) Sorry do not have a current A13 because it has been only a short time since I was in crisis. I am glad to be able to talk about these things with someone.
