My diabetes is acting up

I have been so thirsty lately!
I think its a bad sign. I’m sure it means my diabetes is acting up.
I suppose it could be something else, but I am drinking loads.
I have no way to check my blood sugar. I dont have my glucometer any more. I used to have a talking one. But the batteries stopped working in it.
I will have to try and get another one!
Not sure how expensive they are!
I know my local blindness agency sells them. I think if you get a letter from a doctor you can get one for free.
I definitely need to start checking my blood sugar more often!
I am on meds for the diabetes but it wont hurt to check it a couple times a day.

  1. Definitely get a new glucometer! Maybe it’s not blood sugar, sometimes recently I’ve been very, very thirsty and was worried about it. But I checked my blood sugar and it was in the low hundreds. I think I was just dehydrated from working around the house and yard.

  2. If you haven’t tested in a while, I’d recommend getting a doctor to measure your HBA1C – that’s a blood test, syringe etc. I finger-prick test twice daily but I take insulin so the tests guides my doses.
