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.

    You definitely need to. In my locale, diabetic survivors utilize clinics that offer free glucose measurements as way to enticing new clients. Do some research to find out if such support exist in you community including NGOs and government sponsored projects.

    As i have written on my blog before, consistency and detail to symptoms tracking is key in diabetes management.

    I love your uncanny reverse approach to documenting your diabetes experiences. I’ll definitely reblog some of your posts.

    Things will get better. Wish you the best, Carol!
