My doctor told me I have it. I have to test my blood to see if it can be contorlled by diet or if I have to take meds for it. For the next 2 weeks I have to test my blood 2 times a day. Then the doctor will have a base line to go on and decide if I need meds or not. In the mean time I have to go on a dibetic diet. I also have to get my eyes checked. The doctor gave me 2 new meds to take 1 for cholesterol and 1 to keep my kidneys healthy. I also have to take low does asprin everyday for my heart.
I'll probally have to test my blood all the time for now on. The doctor said if I do need meds I'll get oral ones because I'm not that bad. My blood sugar was in the 150's. Normal is between 90 and 130 so I'm just over that. Not really bad but enough to cause concern.
Now I have to learn how to test my blood. They gave me a meter and some strip things and a thing to poke myself. It's a whole system to test my blood. It hurts to poke my finger. Anyone else have this???
